Radon Testing

At Castle Home Inspection, we prioritize the health and safety of our clients and their families. That’s why we offer professional radon testing services throughout Illinois. Radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas, can pose significant health risks when present at high levels in your home. Our certified radon measurement professionals are trained to accurately assess radon levels and provide you with the information you need to ensure a safe living environment for your loved ones.

Understanding Radon

Radon is an odorless, tasteless, and invisible gas produced by the natural decay of uranium in soil, rock, and water. It can enter your home through cracks and openings in the foundation, walls, and floors. When radon accumulates indoors, it can pose serious health risks, such as lung cancer, especially when exposed to elevated levels over long periods. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends taking action to reduce radon levels if they are found to be 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher.

Our Radon Testing Process

We follow the guidelines established by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) and the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) to ensure accurate radon testing. Our process includes:

  1. Initial Consultation – We discuss your concerns, explain the radon testing process, and schedule an appointment for testing.
  2. On-site Testing – Our certified radon measurement professionals conduct a thorough radon test using state-of-the-art continuous radon monitors (CRM) that measure radon levels continuously over a minimum of 48 hours.
  3. Analysis and Reporting – After completing the testing period, we analyze the data collected and provide you with a comprehensive report detailing the radon levels in your home, along with recommendations for mitigation if necessary.

Radon Mitigation

If your home’s radon levels are found to be above the EPA’s recommended action level, we can help guide you through the process of radon mitigation. Our team will provide you with information about the most effective mitigation methods, such as active soil depressurization (ASD), and refer you to trusted, certified radon mitigation professionals in your area.
