Radon Measurement available in New Hampshire and Massachusetts
Radon, a Class A carcinogen, is the second largest contributor to lung cancer in the US and usually becomes a concern when purchasing or selling property. The EPA has suggested that all homes be tested for radon. Since radon is a colorless, orderless radioactive gas, Black Dog Inspections, LLC encourages you to find out what your radon level is so you can assess your family health impact. Please refer to the free publication EPA 402-K02-006 - "A Citizen's Guide To Radon". Most people are unaware of the danger of long term contact to high levels of radon and because it is not a visible threat they are unacquainted with the potential danger.
Do the test yourself if you believe you can follow the EPA protocol for residential testing. If you feel more comfortable, contact a certified radon measurement professional such as Black Dog Inspections, LLC which has trained in radon testing and passed a National Radon Proficiency Program exam and maintains required training updates for continued certification. We use state of the art continuous radon measurement equipment and follow strict EPA test guidelines. The equipment we use is resistant to tampering so efforts made to falsely reduce radon levels by changing the test environment can be detected. You can be assured the results reflect a valid test.
