Radon Testing

The Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia and border counties in Maryland and Pennsylvania are located in Zone 1 of the EPA's radon map, which means our area is predicted to have the highest levels of radon, or levels greater than 4 pCi/L. The EPA recommends that homes with levels higher than 4 pCi/L install a radon mitigation system to reduce radon levels and subsequently reduce the risk of lung cancer caused by radon.

While the EPA encourages all homeowners to at least perform a home radon test themselves, buyers and sellers are highly encouraged to have a certified professional radon test provider perform what's called a "real estate" test, which can be used in real estate transactions.

I am certified by the American Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants to test your home as part of a home inspection/real estate transaction or as a standalone test for peace of mind.
