Raleigh Radon Testing
Radon Testing in Clayton, Raleigh, Garner, etc is very important due to the potential for harmful Radon levels in the Wake and Johnston Counties. We have found radon levels above the EPA's standard in all surrounding cities including Wake Forest, Clayton NC, Cary NC, Knightdale NC, Apex, Garner and several other areas.Clayton , etc. Every Raleigh area home should be tested for Radon. We use the electronic Radon Testing that is completed in accordance with EPA testing protocols. We do not use inferior charcoal canisters that are only accurate to within plus or minus 20 percent.
The following are common questions:
Q. What is Radon?
A: Radon is a cancer-causing radio-active gas that cannot be seen or smelled and is present in North Carolina. It comes from the earth and can permeate into living spaces of a house.
Q. Should I have my home tested for Radon?
A. Yes, the EPA strongly recommends testing on every home. During our Radon testing in Raleigh, and surrounding areas in Wake County, Johnston County and other counties, we have found many homes that levels higher than the EPA's limit.
Q. Why is Raleigh Radon a concern?
A. According to the EPA, Radon is the number two cause of lung cancer, right behind smoking. Smoking actually amplifies the risk of lung cancer.
Q: How can my home, or the one I am about to purchase be tested?
A: Clear Choice Home Inspections can perform the non-invasive testing quickly and inexpensively. This process involves placing our testing equipment at the home, picking it up approximately 48 hours later, then downloading data from the equipment. Your results will be reported in via email.
Q: How much does Radon testing or Inspection cost?
A: Our testing costs just $125 in most areas, a small price to pay for peace of mind for you and your family. Our fee includes a trip back to the home to remove the equipment and providing you with a report.
Q: Where have you found Radon levels greater than the EPA limit of 4.0 pCi/L?
A: We have found high radon levels in nearly every city we service. This includes Raleigh, Cary, Garner, Apex, Fuquay, Wake Forest and even in Clayton (yes, Johnston county can have higher-than-acceptable Radon levels). Radon levels vary depending on dozens of factors including weather, type of construction, number of occupants in the home, how well the home is insulated, season of the year, rock in the soil below the home, etc.
Q: What happens if the home has high levels of Radon?
A: There are several Radon mitigation companies in the Raleigh area and they can install a continuous venting system to lower the Radon levels. The cost can range from approximately $1,000 to over $2,000. This is another great reason for Radon testing prior to purchasing a property - you can ask the seller to pay for mitigation. This is much better than you paying for mitigation years later when you sell the house.
