Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. It seeps through cracks and holes of your basement or slab and becomes concentrated indoors. An indoor threshold is set by the EPA, but many mid-western states including Iowa have much higher levels due to the glacial history.
Our licensed radon measurement team can quickly and efficiently test your building for radon. Using the electret ion chamber (EIC) method from Rad Elec Inc., we can measure radon in multiple buildings and rooms at the same time. After the testing period is complete, the canisters are collected and brought back to our lab for instant analysis using our electret voltage reader. We are currently the only licensed radon lab for EICs in the State of Iowa. Reports are generated quickly with detailed and easy to understand information.
There are many determining factors for the occurrence of radon. Our specialist can help create a comprehensive, facility-wide plan for the initial and future testing and maintenance of your buildings.
Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas, so testing is your only way of knowing if it is a problem. Testing for radon now and in the future can be a valuable investment, shows due diligence, and gives you peace of mind.
