Know Before You Buy

If you're in the process of buying a home, you should consider ordering a radon test. Radon generally seeps from the soil into the basement or crawlspace of your home through gaps in the foundation or poorly ventilated crawlspaces. If left unchecked, radon can reach dangerous levels and cause serious problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q What is the purpose of a radon test?


Having your home tested for radon can help protect you and your family from a key cause of lung cancer. Exposure to radon accounts for about 21,000 deaths from lung cancer each year according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Q How do you fix a radon problem?


If your home has a radon problem, it can be fixed by installing a radon mitigation system in the home. The EPA recommends that you get a certified or licensed radon mitigation contractor to install the system.

Q What does radon in a house cause? Should I worry about radon?


Radon is a radioactive gas emitted naturally from the ground. You cannot see, smell, or taste radon. But it still may be a problem in your home. However, when radon gets trapped indoors—after entering a home through joints in walls, basement floors, foundations and other openings—it may concentrate at dangerous levels. And exposure to high levels of radon can cause lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General of the United States has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today.

Q Is radon an issue in Georgia?  Should I get it tested?


The map above shows the county breakdown of the percentage of homes testing at or above safe levels for radon. We strongly suggest to get your home tested for Radon. Nationally about 1 in 15 homes have an elevated level of radon (4 picocuries per liter or greater). In much of Georgia, homes are far more likely to have elevated levels of radon when compared to the national average. Some counties have up to 1 in 3 homes with elevated radon levels. Granite rock found in the soil beneath our homes elevates the risk for radon intrusion.

Q How accurate are your Radon tests compared to others?


We use some of the most accurate testing machines in the industry. Unlike some other companies, we also ensure that all our machines are calibrated annually by a third party to provide the most accurate readings. Radon levels go up and down all throughout the day. To make sure that we are giving the best Radon results, we get an average over a 48 hour time span.

Q Can radon mitigation systems reduce radon levels to zero?


While mitigation systems significantly reduce radon levels, they may not eliminate radon completely. The goal is to reduce radon levels to below the EPA action level of 4 pCi/L.

Q How often should radon testing be conducted in my home?


It is recommended to test your home for radon every two years, after significant renovations, or when you move to a new home.

Q Can radon levels vary between homes in the same neighborhood?


Yes, radon levels can vary significantly between homes due to differences in construction, soil composition, and ventilation.

Q Is radon testing necessary in new homes?


Yes, even new homes can have elevated radon levels. Testing ensures the safety of the indoor environment regardless of the home's age or construction.

Q Can I perform a radon test myself?


While home radon test kits are available, professional testing ensures accurate results and proper interpretation of radon levels, which is crucial for safety. Contact LunsPro Home Inspection's office via call or text at 770-483-2808, email to inspections@lunspro.com, or schedule online here.
