Analytical Radon Gas Analysis

Radon gas, while undetectable by humans, is a naturally accruing element radiated from nearly all types of soil. As seen below, the highest areas of concentration can be found in Iowa and much of Minnesota due to previous glacial activity. Structured Inspections and Solutions performs full analytical testing of this gas that often saturates basements and addicts.

A report published by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated that radon gas causes 21,000 deaths per year in the US from lung cancer, second only to cigarette smoking. In 2009, the World Health Organization released an initiative introducing a reference level for radon that has driven conformance and help increase awareness of the harmful gas.

According to the EPA, nearly 1 in 15 homes are contaminated with elevated levels of radon gas. Ask the professional at Structured Inspections and Solutions to test the radon levels in your home.
