RADON TESTING

From the United States Environmental Protection Agency:
“Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas that you can’t see, smell or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family’s health. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in America and claims about 20,000 lives annually.  EPA has launched a new series of television, radio and print public service announcements encouraging people to test and fix their homes for radon. This is a good time to focus on testing and on fixing homes with a radon level of 4 pCi/L or more.  Heed the Surgeon General’s warning. Take action now to reduce your family’s risk of lung cancer from radon!”

At Parkman Home Inspections, we are pleased to announce the selection of Rad Elec, Inc. as our partner in radon testing. Rad Elec’s proven Electret Ion Chamber (EIC) technology surpasses charcoal canisters in precision construction, measurement accuracy, and radon gas sensitivity. To learn more about radon, please visit the US EPA at www.epa.gov/radon.  To learn more about Rad Elec’s EIC technology, click here.
