RADON TESTING IN THE VILLAGES, FL

Radon and Water Quality Testing in The Villages, Florida
 
Radon Air Test

We recommend that you consider testing your property for the presence of radon. Studies have shown that is present in virtually all areas of the United States, and in particular, areas where high concentrations of granite are everywhere in Florida. Homes that have installed granite and marble countertops, backsplash and floor tiles are particularly susceptible to radon gas. Although results vary greatly from property to property it is wise to have our experts perform a localized test on your property.

The effects of radon have been proven to be harmful to your health if not detected and/or mitigated. A simple short-term test will determine whether or not the gas is present, and allow you to make the decision of how to handle as part of your real estate negotiations. Our cost is very reasonable and provides peace of mind in knowing that the property is safe for your family.

Radon Water Test
Radon in well water is a common occurrence. It becomes airborne at the point of entry into the home (i.e. faucets) and has the same effect as radon in the air. Although the presence (or non-presence) of radon in the air does not always indicate whether or not radon is present in the water supply, we recommend having them tested simultaneously. The test is very simple and can be performed in conjunction with the general water quality examination.

Water Quality Testing
We offer a wide variety of water quality sampling that can be done at the time of home inspection. We can perform single item testing such as for the presence of bacteria or e-coli or chloroform, or wider range of analytes from minerals to contaminants. We also offer specific testing required by certain loan programs such as FHA/VA. All of our testing is done through Florida based labs, that provides comprehensive service, quick turn-around, and detailed information for any remediation that may need to occur as a result of the findings.What You GetYou will receive a professional analysis of the radon air and water test that you will be able to use for Radon Mitigation in your home.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. It is formed from the decay of uranium in the soil and can enter your home through cracks in the foundation or basement. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, after smoking, and it is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers.

Radon is bad because it can damage your DNA when you breathe it in. This can lead to lung cancer, even if you have never smoked. Radon exposure can also increase your risk of other types of cancer, such as leukemia and lymphoma.
 

Radon levels are higher in some areas of Central Florida than in others. The Florida Department of Health recommends that all homes in Central Florida be tested for radon. Hire a Certified Radon Tester, Sunbird Home Inspections.
 

If your radon levels are high, there are steps you can take to reduce them. These steps include:

  • Sealing cracks in the foundation and basement

  • Installing a radon fan

  • Increasing ventilation in the home
     

If you are concerned about radon exposure, talk to your doctor. They can help you determine your risk and recommend steps to protect yourself and your family.
 

Here are some additional reasons why you should have your home tested for radon in Central Florida:
 

  • Radon levels can vary from house to house, even in the same neighborhood.

  • Radon levels can change over time, so it is important to test your home regularly, especially if you make any changes to your home, such as adding a basement or renovating your foundation.

  • Radon is a silent killer. There are no symptoms of radon exposure, so the only way to know if your home has high radon levels is to test it.
