Radon Testing

Radon is an odorless, colorless, and tasteless radioactive gas that can seep into homes, through cracks in the foundation, gaps around pipes, and other openings. When radon gas accumulates in indoor spaces, it can pose a health risk to occupants. Radon is known to cause cancer in humans. Long-term exposure to elevated levels of radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking.

The good news is that radon gas is easy to remove from homes. But the only way to know if your home has elevated levels of radon gas is to test for it.  That’s where Sunlight Inspection Services can help.

SunLight Inspection Services performs short-term radon testing using Electret Ionization Chambers. Short-term Radon tests must run a minimum of 48 hours and a maximum of 7 days. closed house conditions must begin 12 hours prior to the start of the test and must be maintained for the duration of the test.

When the Radon Test is being done as part of a home purchase we will attempt to pre-place the test prior to your Home Inspection in order to provide the test results the same day as your Home Inspection.

RADON TESTING in Pennsylvania is regulated by the PA Department of Environmental Protection, Radon Division.
