Radon is an odorless, colorless, radioactive gas that leads to approximately 20,000 lung cancer deaths each year.
The chemical element comes from the natural decay of uranium that is in nearly all soil. After decaying into radioactive particles that can get trapped in your lungs as you breathe, the particles break down and release energy that damages lung tissue and could lead to cancer.
Radon can enter your home through:
- Cracks in floors and walls
- The water supply
- Gaps around service pipes and suspended floors
- Construction joints
Fortunately, Radon testing is easier than ever and purging your house of radon is any easy fix. JM Inspections, LLC in west Pittston, PA, has over 20 years of inspection experience and is committed to keeping you safe. To test for radon, we install a monitor in your property for a minimum of 48 hours. We then upload the data collected by the monitor and review the results using protocols set by the Environmental Protection Agency.
If high levels of radon are detected, the next step would be reducing the level through radon mitigation. Periodic tests are always recommended to ensure your home remains safe from radon.
In addition to radon testing, we also inspect commercial properties, for termites and other pests and asbestos.
