Scope Inspections performs Radon testing using the EPA's guidelines for Real Estate Transactions. 


We use the most up to date equipment that is virtually tamper proof - Sun Nuclear 1028 Computerized Radon Monitors that collect data for 48 continuous hours. Test results are available on inspection day. ​We provide homeowner instructions during the test to ensure accurate test results.


Scope Inspections is Radon Measurement Certified through the Radon Testing Center of America, RTCA and The American Lung Association, ALA.  


 

WHAT IS RADON? 


Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gaseous element formed by the breakdown of Radium (bedrock and soil beneath the house). It occurs naturally, especially in areas over granite, and is considered hazardous to health.  Radon gas from natural sources can accumulate in homes, especially in confined areas such as basements or crawlspaces where there is limited ventilation. 


High Radon levels have been linked to lung cancer and over 20,000 deaths annually. Radon can be reduced through proper mitigation.
