Radon Testing Services

Radon is an odorless, tasteless, naturally occurring radioactive gas. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer and the leading cause of lung cancer in non­smokers. It is created by the decay of uranium that is naturally found in the soil. Granite rock which is common in Georgia can contain significant amounts of uranium. Radon can filter into and be trapped within your home. Short term, 48 hour testing, can determine if there is a critical level within the home as defined by the EPA.
