Why is Radon a Public Health Risk​​​​​

​​​

Radon Gas is a common problem here in metro Atlanta and North Georgia.  Radon is a radio-active gas that comes out of the soil and migrates into homes. Once radon gas enters the home, it becomes trapped by tight construction techniques that keep our homes well sealed and energy efficient.  According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), radon gas is a class A carcinogen and is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in the United States.


The EPA recommends that every home be tested for Radon.

If you’re buying a home in Atlanta or North Georgia, you could be purchasing a home with high radon levels.

The EPA estimates that roughly 21,000 people die each year from Radon alone! These are shocking numbers to say the least. For a small amount of money you could have a Radon test performed before you become another statistic. We also offer discounts if you order a home inspection with your Radon test.
