Radon is believed to be the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States next only to smoking. Radon comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil and is in the air we breathe. It can be found all over the U.S. and can become concentrated in any building. The EPA recommends regular testing of all buildings including homes, churches, and schools. However, you are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home where you spend most of your time.
TWL performs a short-term, 48 hour, measurement rendering immediate results. If the test shows a higher than acceptable limit, I will recommend following the guidelines set forth by the EPA.
TWL also performs radon mitigation if the levels in your house or building are too high. After initial assessment of your home or business, I will quote a price and set up an installation date to fit your schedule. Usually, if TWL performs the installation, I will refund the cost of the initial test.
