Montana Radon Testing

Bozeman Radon Inspection | Shedhorn Inspections | Certified Radon Inspector
Radon is a radioactive gas. It is has no color, odor, or taste. Unless you test for it, there is no way of telling how much is present. Radon is formed by the natural radioactive decay of uranium in rock, soil, and water. Low levels of uranium occur naturally in Earth’s crust and is common around Bozeman and the rest of Montana. Radon is identified as the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, behind smoking. Like other indoor air contaminants, it appears that children are at greater risk than adults from radon exposure because their metabolism is higher and they have more years ahead of them in which to contract negative long-term effects.

Test for Radon

Shedhorn Inspections can test your home or investment property for Radon. The EPA recommends that all houses, regardless of what radon zone the house is located in, be tested for radon as part of the real estate transaction. Most often, the potential buyer requests that a radon test be done as part of the overall home inspection. This test is generally a separate service and must be requested. If the result is 4 pCi/L or greater, the EPA recommends that the potential buyer negotiate with the seller to have a radon mitigation system installed with the stated goal of bringing the radon level in the home below 4 pCi/L.
