Radon Testing Inspection

Our environmental inspection services in Columbus, OH tests for radon in your home. Radon gas is created during the natural breakdown of uranium in the ground.  Uranium is a natural element with slight radioactivity in its original state. However, when it starts to decay and crystallize into a gas form, it becomes dangerous to humans. Typically, radon is found in soil and rocks but can also be present in rivers, lakes and well water. Radon exposure occurs when humans inhale the gas as it rises up through the air around them. Because radon originates from the soil, lower levels of your property including basements will have higher levels of radon than other rooms in your house or workplace.
