Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon generally moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon can also enter your home through well water.
Any home can have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes and homes with or without basements. Actually you and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home. That is where you spend most of your time.
Nearly one out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level (4pCi/L or more).
We use model Sun Nuclear radon monitor 1027. For efficient, accurate results after 48 hours of testing.
Regular calibration, cross checks and continued radon education keep accuracy at a premium.
When I contacted Matt, with On Point Home Inspection, he was knowledgeable and prepared about what I needed for Radon testing. He was prompt and thorough on the day of my home inspection and provided me with a detailed report on the same day. Matt was respectful of the home and made sure to wear shoe covers while in my home. Prior to the inspection Matt reviewed everything he would be doing and when the inspection was complete he took the the time to explain his findings. I would recommend On Point Home Inspection!
Our home buying process moved very quickly. We submitted an offer and they accepted it the same day. I called Matt with On Point Home Inspection LLC, with many questions.
