Quality Services From Radon Specialists
Radon is a cancer-causing radioactive gas that's harmful to your health. Because it emits no odor, color, or taste, it can be difficult to detect it. If exposure to radon goes untreated, it can cause poisoning which can lead to lung cancer. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer, second to only smoking. Because of its insidious nature, it is important you check your home or commercial property for radon.
Because it's a gas, Radon can enter buildings through foundational cracks and openings. The gas decays into radioactive solids, which can be found around the home or business. There are radon tests you can conduct to check the levels of radon present. While you have many tests to choose from, it is recommended that you allow a professional to handle it to ensure accurate readings.
At AdvantaClean, we are dedicated to your health and safety. Our radon specialists have the tools and experience necessary to conduct the test and provide precise readings of the results. We help find the right solutions for you.

What You Need to Know About Radon Testing
Radon testing is typically a two-day process. Our professionals will place the canister or machine at the lowest level of a home, which is usually the basement. If your home does not have a basement or has a 4-foot foundation, we can also put the test on the first floor. The test sits for 48-hours, before providing a reading. If the results indicate radon levels exceeding 4 pCi/L, our team offers quality radon mitigation and remediation services.
Things to Keep in Mind When Testing for Radon:
- The house must be completely closed (ie. Doors, windows, entryways) 12 hours prior to test.
- There are different radon tests available (i.e. electronic machines and charcoal canister tests).
- The cost of radon testing will vary depending on which test you use.
- If you are buying or selling a home, make sure to discuss who is responsible for the testing prior to the real estate transaction.
