Radon Testing

Radon.  Is Uranium’s radioactive cousin living in your house?

 
The EPA recommends homes be tested for Radon at least every two years.  At Sky Seals, we encourage you to obtain a copy of the most recent radon test performed by the current home owner.  If an inspection report cannot be provided, we strongly suggest Radon testing in any home you are considering purchasing or selling.
 
Radon is a silent killer. You can’t see it, taste it, or smell it; yet Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. The first line of defense against this deadly gas, and the only way to start protecting yourself and your family, is to test regularly for the presence of Radon in your home.
