We Are Committed
Radon is a radioactive gas that is the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers in the world. Unfortunately, it’s often impossible for you to know when there are dangerously high levels of radon in your home. Inspect-All Services provides a radon gas test performed by certified home inspectors. Our trained inspectors are committed to keeping you safe from potential environmental hazards, such as radon gas, that may be in your home.
Many times, the equipment to detect radon levels in the home is above and beyond the scope of anything you can pick up at the hardware store. This is why it is so critical to call Inspect-All Services for a 48-hour continuous monitoring test, using state-of-the-art radon detection equipment.
Inspect-All Services was recently on Atlanta radio talking about the dangers of radon and how we can protect you from it. Read the story about Georgia leading the Southeast in unsafe levels of radon.
Radon is a radioactive element that cannot be detected by the senses and requires a full-service home inspection company to perform a radon test. Radon enters your home through gaps in the foundation or poorly ventilated crawlspaces.
Although you can’t smell it or taste it, radon is naturally occurring and may exist in dangerous levels in your home without you even knowing it. It generally seeps into the basement or crawlspace of your home through the soil. If left unchecked, radon can reach dangerous levels and cause serious problems.
Know Before You Buy
Know Before You Buy
If you’re in the process of buying a home, you should order a radon test in Atlanta, GA, first thing. Resolving a radon gas problem can be time-intensive as well as extremely costly. Make sure that you don’t have a radon problem before purchasing a new home. This may save you a lot of money in the long run.
How Is Testing Done?
Testing for radon requires at least two days. Inspect-All Services offers a 48-hour test using the latest equipment on the market. Once the test has been completed and the results are in, you’ll receive a detailed report outlining the property's radon levels. Using the EPA's recommended safety standards for this dangerous gas, this report can alert you as to whether or not the home is safe for occupancy.
