Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is a by-product of the radioactive decay of uranium and radium. Radon gas is colorless, odorless and tasteless, so the only way to know the level of radon in your home is to test for it.
Blue Ladder radon testing service uses the latest in state-of-the-art continuous radon detection equipment to measure the ongoing level of radon in habitable areas of the home. The radon levels will be measured over a 48-hour period and you will be given a detailed report that shows the levels on an hourly basis. These measurements evaluate the level of radon to determine if any form of improvement is required. Per the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), you should take steps to resolve the issue if the radon level is 4pCi/l or higher.
< The EPA document A CITIZEN'S GUIDE TO RADON (THIRD EDITION) provides the basic information everyone should know about radon.
According to Oregon.gov, The Oregon Public Health Division recommends that all homes test for radon regardless of the risk level assigned to the home's geographic location.
