Home Radon Testing in Champaign IL
Home Radon Testing in Champaign IL
Radon is a radioactive gas formed by the natural decay of uranium in soil and rocks. As a naturally occurring substance, it can be found in any type of building, seeping from the ground through cracks and openings in the floors and walls. Without proper ventilation, a home or building can have increased concentrations of radon in indoor air, which could pose significant health risks to occupants. As a harmful substance, it should be detected early on to prevent its deadly effects. Home radon testing in Champaign IL must be performed to detect levels of radon and to apply mitigating procedures if necessary.
Home radon testing in Champaign IL is needed because we can't see, smell, or taste radon. These characteristics make it easy for the harmful substance to go undetected. Radon is a major cause of lung cancer, so testing homes for this dangerous gas is very important. At Callaway and Associates, we have over 20 years of experience in testing homes for harmful levels of radon. With our help, homeowners - buyers and sellers alike - have peace of mind knowing that our radon testing techniques yield accurate results that in turn allows for proper remediation or mitigation plans if necessary.
