RADON TESTING
 
Radon is a naturally occurring colorless, odorless, and tasteless radioactive gas that is caused by the breakdown (radioactive decay) of uranium in the earth's soil. Radon gas migrates through the soil and into our homes at all times. Radon presents a health risk when unacceptable levels are found in our homes and are inhaled for prolonged periods. The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes for radon.
  Radon Testing Systems Tri-County's Radon Lab Partner AARSTAmerican Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists, Inc. Our inspectors are required to become Certified by the PA Department of Environmental Protection to place radon tests during the course of the inspection. All tests are conducted in accordance with the PA-DEP protocols and quality assurance guidelines. After a minimum of 48 hours the test is analyzed and the results are quickly available. The lab is a test only firm to avoid any conflict of interest.
