How Radon Enters Homes
Radon Causes Cancer
Testing for Radon
The EPA urges that all homes be tested for radon. All homes—new and old, no matter where they are located—may have high levels of radon gas. You can’t see, smell, or taste radon. There are many ways to test for radon and many factors that can result in misleading measurements (for example, an open basement window may lower—or raise—radon levels). To get accurate testing results, it pays to get a highly qualified professional to do the job.
Howard Dunbar of APEX is licensed by the State of Ohio to test for radon in your home.
To ensure accurate results, APEX uses a state-of-the-art continuous monitor that samples radon each hour for 48 hours. The tamper-resistant monitor senses and reports motion to secure dependable readings.
