Radon Levels in Virginia



Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the United States and the leading cause for non-smokers.  As a member of AARST, NEHA, NRPP, and IAC2 you can rest assured that we have the training and support to properly identify unhealthy levels of radon in your home.  Northern Virginia is at higher risk area for the radioactive gas, and correcting the problem is a relatively simple process. Knowing ahead of time is critical.  


Below is from The EPA publication "A Citizens Guide to Radon":


Radon can be found all over the U.S.  Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building — homes, offices, and schools — and result in a high indoor radon level. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time.


You should test for radon.  Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon. EPA also recommends testing in schools.


RADON GETS IN THROUGH:

Cracks in solid floors
Construction joints
Cracks in walls
Gaps in suspended floors
Gaps around service pipes
Cavities inside walls
The water supply
Much of Northern VA is in the EPA's highest risk zones for high levels of Radon
