Certified Radon Inspections
Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. It is invisible, odorless, and tasteless — making it impossible to detect without specialized equipment. Radon is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year, according to EPA’s Assessment of Risks from Radon in Homes (EPA 402-R-03-003). If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high. Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building—homes, offices, and schools—and result in a high indoor radon level.
Protect Your Home & Family
You can’t see radon. And you can’t smell it or taste it. Radon gas can enter your home through the foundation and collect in the basement and lower levels. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. A radon test will check for any hazardous concentrations. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon. If you find that you have high radon levels, there are ways to fix a radon problem. Even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels.

Detailed Inspection Reports
Buying a property can be a stressful experience, so be sure to choose someone who has your best interest in mind, and can provide you with the right information needed to make the best decision. Each residential inspection is documented in a detailed inspection report, complete with high-quality images, detailed analysis, and recommendations. The report covers the condition of the home’s heating system; central air conditioning system; interior plumbing system; electrical system; roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors; the foundation, basement, and all structural components. The inspection report is sent to you online shortly after the inspection is completed. Each report is mobile-friendly and can easily be copied and pasted if you need to share the information with anyone.
