Radon

HT Inspection provides Radon Testing services for New York, Vermont and Massachusetts

Radon gas is an odorless, tasteless, and invisible radioactive gas released into the ground as a result of uranium decay. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer, after smoking.  We conduct testing using a femto-Tech Model-510 Continuous Radon Monitor, an EPA approved device and passive devices.

Based on information contained in the National Academy of Sciences report, The Health Effects of Exposure to Indoor Radon, radon is estimated to cause between 15,000 and 22,000 lung cancer deaths per year. Data on (non-radon) causes of death are from Injury Facts, 1999 Edition, National Safety Council, Itasca, IL.
