Professional Radon Testing

Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas that can cause cancer. Radon gas is inert, colorless and odorless. Radon is naturally in the atmosphere in trace amounts. Outdoors, radon disperses rapidly and, generally, is not a health issue. Most radon exposure occurs inside homes, schools and workplaces. This is why you should hire us to provide radon gas testing to ensure that your family is safe in your home.

Radon Testing

We proudly offer radon testing, because we know that the safety of your family is important. 

Radon gas becomes trapped indoors after it enters buildings through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Indoor radon can be controlled and managed with proven, cost-effective techniques.

Breathing radon over time increases your risk of lung cancer. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Nationally, the EPA estimates that about 21,000 people die each year from radon-related lung cancer. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. See more info about what radon gas is and the health risk of radon from the EPA “Radon Gas” page.

If you are interested in radon testing you can contact us at (540) 480-0010, email at or use our online scheduler to book your radon test appointment. We’ll be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Radon is  the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. It may cause as many as 21,000 lung cancer deaths/yr. in the
USA – which includes approx. 670/yr. in Virginia!

What are the chances of lung cancer?

The chances of developing lung cancer from Radon is factored by the amount of radon concentration over an amount of time exposed. Those who smoke are at a greater risk.

Radon Lung Cancer Risk for a full lifetime (70 yr.) exposure:


At 20 pCi/L: = 36/1000
At 10 pCi/L: = 18/1000
At 4 pCi/L:   = 7/1000
At 1.3 pCi/L = 2/1000


At 20 pCi/L: = 260/1000
At 10 pCi/L: = 150/1000
At 4 pCi/L: = 62/1000
At 1.3 pCi/L: = 20/1000


Are New Homes Required to Have Mitigation Systems Installed?

The answer depends on where the home is located. The state of Virginia currently gives all Zone 1 counties/cities the OPTION of requiring RRNC (Radon Reduction New Construction) for all new homes built under their jurisdiction. Amelia, Buckingham, Nottoway, Rockbridge and Shenandoah counties along with the independent cities of Blacksburg, Buena Vista, Christiansburg, Lexington, Radford, Roanoke and Salem have adopted that ordinance into their local building codes.

What do I do if I have Radon?

If your radon test comes back with elevated readings, the EPA recommends that the home should have a mitigation system installed. Mitigation systems range in cost generally from 1400 – 2000 dollars, and can greatly lower the radon level in the home. The cost of the system will depend on the scope and level of work involved, crawlspaces are typically more expensive to mitigate than basements. 

After a mitigation company completes installation, an independent 3rd party tester is required to do a post-mitigation test 24 hours (minimum) after install to ensure the system is properly working and reducing the radon levels in your home. 

Who Can Mitigate Radon?

Virginia law requires that all professional radon testers and mitigators operating in the Commonwealth must be currently certified and listed by either National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) ( or the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) (
