Radon Testing



Over 21,000 deaths per year can be related to radon exposure.


Iowa is one of the leading states for high radon levels and 74% of all homes in Iowa have radon, the EPA strongly suggests that all homes be tested for radon and retested every two years, even after a radon mitigation system has been installed, to assure that the system is working properly and radon levels are still below 4.0 pcils.

Many people ask me if the radon kits that are purchased in a store are accurate.  My answer is this:  “Even though they are accepted by the EPA, there is a greater chance of contamination, (due to the amount of time they have been on the shelves or accidently opened), to the radon kits.  It’s always best to have a Licensed Radon Measurement Specialist complete the test for better accuracy and peace of mind.”

A Licensed Radon Measurement Specialist has completed the training program, has been licensed by the State of Iowa and continues training throughout their career.  The specialist uses the most sophisticated, accurate and calibrated equipment on the market and can give the client an exact radon measurement report, including an hour by hour radon level, overall average and EPA protocol average.  The Specialist will be able to answer any questions that you might have about radon testing or radon mitigation and assure you that the test will be completed in a timely and reliable manner meeting all the State’s EPA guidelines.


According to the EPA, everyone should test for Radon.


A safe level of radon gas is no radon gas. Radon gas is a carcinogen which causes lung cancer. The US EPA has put it plainly, stating, "Any radon exposure has some risk of causing lung cancer. The lower the radon level in your home, the lower your family's risk of lung cancer." The average person receives a higher dose of radiation from the radon levels in their home than from their combined exposure to all other radiation sources, natural or man-made. Radon gas is a naturally-occurring by product of the radioactive decay of Uranium in the soil.


Depending on your geographic location, the radon levels of the air you breathe outside of your home may be as high as 0.75 pCi/L. Radon Act 51 passed by Congress set the natural outdoor level of radon gas (0.4 pCi/L) as the target radon level for indoor radon levels. However, two-thirds of all homes exceed this level. Your risk of lung cancer increases substantially with exposure to higher radon levels.

If your home rates above this level of radon, the EPA recommends you take corrective measures to reduce your exposure to radon gas. This does not imply that a level below 4.0 pCi/L is considered acceptable. It is estimated that a reduction of radon levels to below 2 pCi/L nationwide would likely reduce the yearly lung cancer deaths attributed to radon by 50%.
