WHY TEST YOUR HOME FOR RADON
You cannot see, smell or taste radon, but it may be a problem in your home. Although radon is a naturally occurring gas in our environment, it is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas, and the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the U.S., according to the U.S. Surgeon General. Testing is the only way to find out what your home’s radon level is.
FACTS ABOUT RADON
Nearly one out of every 15 homes is estimated to have elevated radon levels. You cannot predict your home’s radon level based on state or local radon measurements or on test results taken in other homes in your neighborhood. Again, testing is the only way to find out what your home’s radon level is.
LET DPI TEST YOUR HOME FOR RADON
As a certified radon measurement technician and successfully completing the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors’ online course and examination for advanced radon measurement service DPI will use special interference-proof radon test kits that will measure the radon levels in your home. The measurements are taken for a brief and limited time, which may be especially important if you are buying or selling a home.
