Radon Levels Explained

Radon levels are measured in picocuries, which refers to the amount of radioactivity of radium in a liter of air.

4 picocuries per liter of air (pCi/L) is the action level of exposure in the U.S and is the equivalent of smoking 8 cigarettes per day.

Radon Cigarette Comparison 

The risk of death by radon is approximately 1 in 100 people when exposed daily to 4 pCi/L.

Testing

The first step to help ensure the safety of you and your family’s health and safety is to have your home tested for radon. At St. Louis Radon, our professional testers deploy the latest in computerized electronic real-time radon monitoring technology to provide you with a comprehensive report, including a complete visual graph of radon level data points as recorded over a 48-hour sampling period.

Mitigation

If testing indicates levels of radon that require action, our team of engineers and technicians will design and install a custom radon mitigation system to safely and effectively redirect radon and other soil gasses out of your home. We also take additional measures to seal and close other possible breaches in the foundation that could let soil gasses into the through cracks or drain tiles systems.

New Construction

With new home construction projects, it is crucial to determine the level of radon that may be present in the soil before the home is built. It’s also critical to have the new home retested for potential radon concentrations immediately following occupancy. We also highly recommend installing an Active Dampness Control System (ADC) with every new build.
