According to the CDC, Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoking. The EPA and the Surgeon General’s office estimate radon is responsible for more than 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year in the United States.

When you breathe in radon, radioactive particles from the decay of radon gas can get trapped in your lungs. It takes many years for lung cancer to develop.

Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert radioactive gas. It is formed by the natural radioactive decay of uranium in rock, soil, and water. It can be found in all 50 states.

High Radon levels inside buildings are well documented in North Carolina, including Wake and surrounding Counties.

The EPA and the CDC both recommend that you test for Radon Gas regardless of your region in the United States.

We provide rapid, accurate testing following the American National Standard ( ANSI/AARST) protocols.
