Radon Testing2021-05-04T18:13:36-04:00

Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas released in rock, soil, and water from the natural decay of uranium. While levels in outdoor air pose a relatively low threat to human health, radon can accumulate to dangerous levels inside buildings. You can’t see, smell, or taste it, but an elevated radon level in your home may be affecting the health of your family.

Exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and the number one cause among non-smokers. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates the radon causes more than 20,000 lung cancer deaths in the country each year. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has radon, your risk of lung cancer can be higher.

Radon is found all over the United States.

Radon has been found in elevated levels in homes in every state. No area of the country is free from risk. Indeed, two homes right next to each other can have vastly different radon levels. Just because your neighbor’s house does not have an elevated level of radon does not mean that your house will have a low radon level. The only way to know if your home is under the EPA action level of 4pCi/L is to test.

High levels of radon in homes usually come from surrounding soil. Radon gas enters through cracks and openings – such as sump pump lids and plumbing features – on the lower levels of your home. Hot spots include basements, first-floor rooms, and garages, but radon can be found anywhere in your house.

You should test for radon.

The U.S. Surgeon General recommends that all homes in the U.S. be tested for radon. Testing your house for radon is easy to do. If your house has a radon problem, you can take steps to fix it to protect yourself and your family.

Radon Delete can test your home for radon. We will place a radon detector in the home for 48 hours. The monitor will take a reading every hour. We will then pick the detector up and compile your report from the readings. It is as easy as picking up the phone and calling us today at (859) 629-8495.

You can fix a radon problem.

The cost of making repairs to reduce the radon level depends on several factors, including how your home was built. Most homes can be fixed for about the same cost as other common home repairs, like painting or having a new hot water heater installed. Contact us to mitigate radon if you find an elevated radon level in your home.

How Does Radon Get into a House?2019-12-19T13:16:10-05:00

There are many ways Radon can get into your house including drains, sump pumps, basement floor cracks, basement wall cracks construction joints, loose pipe fittings and exposed soil. Radon might also enter the air of a home from well water.

Because radon is a gas, it can easily spread from the ground into the air in a home. The main method in which radon enters a home is through the basement floor including crawl spaces.

Can Radon Cause Lung Cancer?2019-12-19T13:17:00-05:00

Yes. The EPA estimates that over 20,000 preventable deaths in the U.S. can be attributed to exposure to radon decay products. That is twice the amount of drunk driving fatalities each year.

Alpha particles released by radon decay products are the main driver in damage to healthy lung tissue. Smoking combined with radon exposure is especially risky.

What Is Radon?2019-12-04T15:31:59-05:00

You can’t see, smell, or taste radon. However, it still might be an issue inside your house. Radon is a gas atom, and it features a half-life of only about 4 days. Radon gas is completely natural and it forms during the decay of uranium-238, an element that is naturally present in our soil.

I cannot say enough positive about our experience with Radon Delete. They were recommended by a friend who had a great experience with them. They were knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and friendly. They stayed in touch and willingly answered all our questions. They did a professional job with cheerful attitudes. We could not be happier with their service.

Brenda M., Lexington, KY

I cannot speak more highly of Wilson and his team. I had a difficult situation with a large crawl and I wanted only one system. Other radon companies kept saying I needed two systems. Wilson and his crew made it work. I went from radon levels of upper 40s to 0.5. I had about 5 companies come through and Wilson and Radon Delete with his HVAC experience and mechanical design training were far and away the most qualified!

James H., Lexington, KY

We had a fantastic experience with Radon Delete. The entire process from quote through install and follow up was seamless. Great customer service accompanied by a high level of craftsmanship is hard to find these days and these guys outperformed expectations at every turn. They were very thoughtful on how to make the system look as atheistically pleasing as possible and our radon levels were cut down dramatically after just a few hours of running the system.
