Testing for Radon in Basements
Home or basement remodeling process requires testing the air for radon. This is not a mandatory procedure, but the Environmental Protection Agency asks people to do it.
Almost all states are located on small radon mines, which can accumulate under a building and penetrate through cracks or gaps. If you are planning to make your ground floor residential, then such a check is imperative for your safety.
Our company will help you transform your ground floor into a real dream place. A crew of experts creates a detailed work plan and makes a radon test.
It is important to remember that the rate of this substance may differ even in neighboring houses. According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers, so it is important to check your home. The normal level is 0.4 picocuries per liter, but there are cases when the mark goes to 4 pCi/L.

This substance is odorless and colorless; it cannot be detected without a professional inspection.
The cost to finish a basement can be quite expensive, but the price for testing premises for radon goes from $800 to $2,000.
Radon Testing and Detection
Our team of professionals is fast, efficient, accurate, and affordable. Any deviations from the norm are identified promptly and we will offer you effective mitigation services.Radon signs on the ground floor can be higher than in a home because this gas comes from underground.
Our finished basement company will find any place where gas enters the basement:
- cracks in the floor;
- bad foundation compaction;
- floor holes;
- block walls;
- dirty floors;
- slab joints, etc.
Testing should be done every 2 years. The ground floor is checked for radon if this room is inhabited, that is, it is used at least 7 hours a week. We also offer an express check that takes 2-3 days.
Basement Radon Cleaning Process
Our professional radon inspectors perform two types of testing: short and long term
. The first type is the installation of special kits that must be located in the basement for 48-96 hours. Long-lasting kinds should work between 90 days and 1 year.
This method is more accurate because it checks the data in warm and cold seasons.
If you are planning on finishing your basement or remodeling your home then the radon test results must be listed on your property documents.
