What is Radon Gas?

Radon is a radioactive gas that is known to cause severe health problems, of which the most common is lung cancer. This gas can build up indoors, especially in the lower level of your home and put your family at risk.

There are regions in North America known to have higher levels of Radon. In Virginia, there are almost 700 cases of lung cancer linked to Radon exposure every year. There have been reports of elevated levels of Radon in 15 cities and 46 counties that are classified as zone 1 (high-risk Radon level) in Virginia. So, don’t put yourself, your family and your employees at the risk of exposure to this unhealthy and dangerous gas. Call us now and get your home tested for radon as soon as possible.

At NextDay Inspect, we utilize the latest technology for radon gas testing. Our radon devices give an hourly reading on the radon levels in your property.

Prolonged Exposure

The noticeable symptoms generated from prolonged exposure maybe mild and go unnoticed for an extended duration. Symptoms, such as wheezing, shortness of breath, chest pains, etc.

EPA's Designated High Risk Areas

The EPA has designated counties as zone 1, 2, and 3 with 1 being the highest risk. The EPA has a map of counties that are color-coded with their zone number.
