I have a
new home so radon won't be an issue?
Since radon enters the home from the soils beneath the
home, the age of the home is not indicative of whether
or not radon will be an issue in your home. Radon is
often present in both new and older homes.
My house is built on a slab (I have no basement) so
radon won't be an issue?
To the contrary a house with no basement is built
directly on the source of the radon (the soil) and can
certainly have elevated radon levels.
My builder installed a "passive radon system" so I
won't have a radon problem?
Passive systems can be very effective where there are
low levels of radon, however you should still test your
home for elevated levels as a passive systems allows
radon to escape, it does not actively remove the radon
gas from underneath your home.
Radon is only present over mining areas?
Elevated levels of radon are found in both mining and
My radon level was only elevated because the home was
closed up prior to the testing?
Radon is constantly moving. As it moves it hits things
(walls etc) and "plates out" or dies. Therefore radon
can't build up because it is constantly dying and being
My neighbors had their home tested and it was fine so
mine will be fine as well?
Although radon levels tend to be higher in certain
areas, many times we find elevated levels of radon right
next to a property with acceptable levels. Testing is
