That’s where Columbus Ohio Radon Mitigation can help!
We offer the most reliable radon testing in Columbus, and we follow up with effective, affordable radon mitigation services if they are needed.
Don’t continue to worry that the air in your home may not be safe to breathe! Have your professional radon testing completed ASAP so that you can protect yourself and the people you care about most.
Radon Test Columbus Ohio
Every home in the Columbus area should be tested for radon. As a company that works exclusively in this field, we can tell you that there are many factors that can affect a home’s radon levels, so just because your neighbor got a clean test result, that doesn’t indicate that your home is radon-free as well.
Because radon enters at ground level, the condition of your foundation or basement has a big impact on your home’s radon level. In addition, pockets of radon can be released in a very small area, only affecting one home while others in close proximity remain unaffected.
A radon inspection is the only way to know for sure. Don’t rely on someone else’s Columbus Ohio radon testing results!
Columbus Ohio Radon Mitigation provides more than a service. We supply confidence and relief to our valued customers – people who are also our friends and neighbors!
When approaching a radon test, we know the most effective ways of getting accurate test results. Radon testing isn’t as simple as buying a kit online and plugging it in. A lot of people make that mistake, and they end up with a false sense of security based on those inaccurate test results. Worse yet, someone in your home could develop a serious health condition because you trusted an invalid radon test.
We do it right so you can have the peace of mind you deserve!
The lower levels of your home are more likely to have radon than upper levels because it is such a heavy gas. Radon levels can be extremely high on the first floor and virtually non-existent on upper levels. Therefore, it’s important that your radon testing team knows where to look!
Our team will also work to find the source of radon gas leaks, and we’ll follow up with testing after your radon mitigation system has been installed. No one is more thorough than Columbus Ohio Radon Mitigation!
Radon Test Kit
A radon test kit is a simple device that can determine how much radon is in your home. The cost of a kit varies based on how many detectors will be needed. This decision is only made by experts once we have inspected your home. During the inspection, we are also looking for the best places to temporarily install the test kits.
Radon level testing utilizes activated charcoal, which traps radioactive radon gas particles, or a statically charged Teflon device. Passive testing uses no electricity, while active radon testing devices must have a source of electricity. Different circumstances may warrant one over the other, but both types of tests are useful and reliable.
If you are a Columbus Ohio homeowner, don’t bother with the hassle of ordering and administering your own radon test kit. Let us handle it and be sure the results are right!
An alternative to having sporadic radon testing done is to install a radon detection device in your home permanently. A radon gas detector will alert you to high levels of radon just as a fire detector signals the presence of smoke.
Unlike fire and smoke, you’d never know radon was in your home otherwise, so a radon detector is a really good way to make sure your home is as safe as possible at all times, rather than just during the periods of radon testing – even if those services are professionally administered.
You will also eliminate radon testing cost by having a radon detector installed in your home. There will be no need for yearly testing…no fees or hassle to contend with as long as your detector is working properly!
Before we begin discussing the differences between the different levels of radon gas, we want our customers to understand one thing: There are no safe radon levels!
What the EPA deems ‘acceptable’ and what you are exposed to on a daily basis in the outside air are fairly low, but it’s important to know that any exposure to radon can be harmful.
To combat radon within your home and get those numbers as close to zero as possible, Columbus Ohio Radon Mitigation can inspect your home to discover how radon gas is entering in the first place.
Prevention is the best course of action whenever possible. With our radon testing services, you will have all the information needed to make an informed decision about the next steps, whether it be professional radon testing or installing a radon detector in your home.
