Certified Radon Testing

Certified Radon Testing

Radon is a colorless and odorless naturally occurring radioactive gas that seeps from soil into homes through cracks and other openings in the foundation or walls in contact with the soil.

The National Academy of Sciences estimates that radon causes between 15,000-22,00 lung cancer deaths each year in the United States.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recommends that all homeowners test their homes for radon.

Radon gas measurement is easy and should be considered by the buyer as part of any real estate transaction. All professionals who perform radon tests in New Jersey must be certified. They must demonstrate sufficient education and experience, take DEP approved courses in radon testing, and pass a written examination.
