Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, right behind smoking. What makes it more dangerous, is that unlike smoking, radon is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. It didn't receive that much attention until the 1980's but now it has begun to gain more recognition for it's potential to effect our health. As technology has advanced, testing for radon has become easier and cheaper and is part of many real estate transactions. Regardless of whether or not the test is part of a real estate transaction, we use the lab at #1 Radon Tester LLC. The lab is operated by Celia Rajkovich and she not only runs the lab but spends countless hours mentoring radon professionals in the state to help them maintain the utmost standards. We use this particular lab because they are local and their turn around times are hard to beat, which comes in very handy for home buyers trying to meet deadlines. While price and turn around times are crucial, it doesn't outweigh the fact that the quality of their work is top notch.
If you are a home buyer, or even a current home owner, and have questions about radon; please do not hesitate to call or shoot us an email. Regardless of whether or not you want us to test your property, we will do our best to answer any questions and educate you to help you protect your family. The Commonwealth also has a number of resources for home owners and you can find them here.
