Radon Measurements

Award Home Inspections is one of the few companies that performs radon measurements in the Richmond, Virginia area. The company is certified through the National Radon Safety Board and offers a competitive price on radon measurement services. 

Radon is a naturally occurring, odorless, flavorless and colorless gas that most commonly enters the home from the ground. It’s dangerous at high levels and is the leading cause of cancer in non-smokers across the globe. Scientists estimate that 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths in the United States each year are attributed to radon exposure. 

The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that radon levels not exceed 4 4 pCi/l, but many homes in Central Virginia exceed those levels. It’s estimated that 1 in 15 homes across the United States have radon levels at or above the levels recommended by the EPA

Simple radon test

A radon measurement is a simple process. A certified radon measurement specialist comes to your home or business and sets up a radon monitor. The monitor will collect data for a minimum of 48 hours. The radon measurement specialist will collect the monitor, analyze the data and give you a detailed report at the conclusion of the test. 

Radon is everywhere, but this simple test saves lives. Your home or business has some level of radon, but you need to determine if radon levels are safe. Award Inspections is happy to perform the test.
