Radon is the natural gas produced when uranium in soil and rocks decay. Since soil and rock is all around us, specifically surrounding the foundation of your home, it is hard to prevent that radioactive gas from entering your home. It comes in through the cracks and pores in the foundation, through construction joints and even gaps around pipes. With so many ways for radon to enter, it is important to test for unsafe radon levels in your home.Test For Unsafe Radon Levels In Your HomeWhat does "unsafe" mean when it comes to radon? Well, radon accounts for 70% of the radiation that we are exposed to here in Utah. It is also the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Radon has no color, smell or taste so the only way to determine if your home has high radon levels, is through specialized testing.

There are tests you can purchase yourself and send into a lab, however, we recommend using a professional testing service, like Utah Radon Services. We utilize the highest quality testing equipment and have tested thousands of homes throughout Utah. If you are in the process of selling your home, we will come out and set the test for you. If you are testing for your own knowledge and safety, we will send you a test with specific instructions to follow. And best of all... both options are FREE and provide certified results.

Keep in mind that it doesn't matter if your neighbor tested and had low levels, or if your house is brand new, any home can have high radon levels. Don't expose yourself or loved ones to high radon levels. The best thing you can do is test for unsafe radon levels in your home.
