Qwest Inspect Offers 'State of the Art' Radon Testing

Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the U.S. You cannot see, taste, or smell radon so testing is the only way to find out the levels of radon in a home.

The EPA and Surgeon General say breathing radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer and, if you smoke, your risk is even higher.

Radon comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air in a home through cracks and other holes in the foundation such as sump well.

Any home can have high levels of radon. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with and without basements. Approximately 12% of homes in Michigan have dangerously elevated levels of radon.

If high levels of radon are found in the house, the high levels can be reduced for about $1200; although this can range from $500 to $2,500.
