Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. You can't see radon. And you can't smell it or taste it. But it may be a problem in your home.

Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. That's because when you breathe air containing radon, you can get lung cancer. In fact, Radon is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year, according to EPA's 2003 Assessment of Risks from Radon in Homes (EPA 402-R-03-003).  Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.

Pittsburgh Radon Testing

Every pCi/L of radon gas present in your home has the same
cancerous effects as smoking 1 cigarette per day!
  1. Why Should I use Guardian to do my Radon testing?
    Guardian Professional Inspection Services uses E-PERM®, also known as an Electret Ion Chambers (EIC) and continuous monitors to test for Radon. Your results are reported in 48 hours (if scheduled with a whole-house inspection, we prefer to drop it off 48 hours prior to the inspection so that we have all inspection test results back on the same day) All data is reviewed for any sign of suspected tampering by our team of trained professionals.

  2. I'm not worried about the Radon health risks, so why should I get my home tested?
    That's an excellent and very important question. Radon gas is everywhere and there's nothing we can do about it. This means that even if you choose to ignore it, it will still have an effect on your health.

    Additionally, the general public is becoming increasingly aware of this fact and is very often demanding to know if the house they are about to purchase has high Radon levels so that the issue can be corrected before they move in. Therefore, even if someone is not concerned about the health risks themselves, it makes economic sense to have the home tested so that if the Radon levels do, in fact, come back high when you purchase, the mitigation system can be negotiated and possibly purchased by your seller now (a $500-$1500 expense). By ignoring the Radon hazard today, when you eventually sell the home, the next buyer’s are very likely to have the home tested, and suddenly you now faced with the prospect of paying for the system that you should have had your current seller pay for from the very start.
  3. How is Radon gas measured; and what does it mean to me?
    Radon gas is measured in pCi/L (picocurie per liter - the amount of radioactivity in a liter (about a quart) of liquid substance, such as water). According to the EPA, every pCi/L of Radon gas present in your home has the same cancerous effects as smoking 1 cigarette per day (we’ve seen levels vary from .6 pCi/L to 70 pCi/L).

  4. Where does Radon gas come from?
    Radon gas is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that develops from the depletion of Uranium in our soil. Radon levels in the soil (not in your home) range from a few hundred to several thousands of pCi/L.
    Both the EPA and the Surgeon General recommend that ALL homes get tested for Radon
  5. Can I tell if I have Radon gas in my home?
    No. You can't see it, smell it, or taste it.

  6. How dangerous is Radon gas?
    Radon takes the lives of more than 21,000 people annually

  7.  I have a new home, should I still test for Radon?
    The age of a home will not be a factor in high Radon levels in a home. Newer homes may still have high levels (and in fact, may have higher levels) since older homes are draftier and today's new construction homes are built tighter than in the past.

  9. How does Radon gas get into my home?

  1. If Radon gas comes from the soil, why don't I get sick when I go outside?
    Radon moves out of the ground and dilutes to harmless levels in the atmosphere. However, it can accumulate to high levels in homes.
