Radon Testing Services
The U.S. EPA considers the possibility for radon exposure to be at its highest potential in Douglas, Leavenworth, Wyandotte, and Jefferson Counties. Houses with no barrier between the soil and the interior, such as homes with a dirt floor in the basement or crawl space, as well as structures with porous foundations like concrete block or fieldstone are especially vulnerable. Even houses with poured concrete basement floors and foundations usually have routes of entry for soil gas through ground level drainage systems, flaws in a concrete floor slab, or concrete block walls. Radon intrusion is often a concern and radon testing is recommended for most buildings and homes.
