Radon is an invisible, odorless gas that is produced by the normal breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water. Since you cannot see or smell radon, special equipment is needed to detect it. There are two types of radon testing: the short-term test remains in your home for two days to 90 days; the long-term test remains in your home for more than 90 days. Short-term testing yields faster results, but long-term provides better information regarding a home’s average radon level.
If you have performed the first test, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends a second test before fixing your home. Radon levels fluctuate naturally and it is important to have an accurate assessment of your home’s average radon level. If you have performed a follow-up test and the radon level still needs to be reduced, the EPA recommends that you have a qualified radon mitigation contractor like Blue Chip Restoration perform radon mitigation and fix your home because lowering high radon levels requires specific technical knowledge and special skills.
