What Is Radon Gas Testing?
Bedrock naturally contains radioactive gases. One of these is radon. Radon is released into the air via groundwater. Wherever your home is, it’s always advisable to get it tested for radon. If your neighbor’s house passed a radon test you should still get yours tested. It’s true that some areas of the country have generally higher levels than others but levels can vary from house to house—high-level pockets can be found in low-level areas and vice versa.
There are various ways to reduce radon levels in your home and it’s important to find the right one for your situation.

The most popular method used to draw out radon gas is known as “Active Sub-Slab Depressurization.” A PVC pipe is inserted into the concrete slab of your home at a strategic spot. The vent pipe is routed either externally on the outside of the building or internally through the building if the floor plan permits. A fan draws out the radon gas from beneath the concrete slab or basement floor and disperses it above the roof of the house where it can dissipate safely into the atmosphere. Thus, the radon bypasses your home.
