Radon Testing in Greater Charlotte

Trust the Experts at LunsPro!

Know Before You Buy

If you're in the process of buying a home, you should consider ordering a radon test. The EPA recommends every home be tested for radon. Radon generally seeps from the soil into the basement or crawlspace of your home through gaps in the foundation or poorly ventilated crawlspaces. If left unchecked, radon can reach dangerous levels and cause serious problems.

Radon Resistant Construction

Unfortunately, parts of North and South Carolina, including the Greater Charlotte area, lead the Southeast in unsafe levels of this harmful gas, according to the EPA. Our state doesn't yet, but many states now require radon-resistant construction for new houses.

Schedule Radon Testing

A radon gas problem can be time-intensive as well as extremely costly. Make sure that you don't have a radon problem before purchasing a new home. This may save you a lot of money in the long run.
