Radon gas occurs naturally as the product of uranium breakdown in soil, rock, and water. It does not last long but it is radioactive and can easily be inhaled, which makes it a health hazard. Every year, radon is estimated to cause thousands of lung cancer deaths in the United States. The risk is particularly pronounced in Iowa, where 70% of homes have elevated radon levels, typically in basements or groundwater.
At American Inspections Inc, we offer comprehensive radon testing, making sure that radon action levels in your home are within the parameters recommended by the EPA. We employ the most thorough methodology available, recording radon levels on an hourly basis to provide clear-cut findings and actionable insights. We strongly urge all Iowa residents to consider this vitally important testing procedure!
