Did you know that your home or the home you’re thinking about buying could have a colorless, odorless, yet deadly gas inside it? That radioactive gas is called radon, and it’s actually the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. behind smoking. It is within your best interest to have radon testing done in a home before making a huge investment in it. It’s also a good idea to have a radon inspection done if you’ve never had one completed in your current home.

Buying/Purchasing/Selling A Home?
Have a Professional Test for Radon During Your Home Inspection in New Jersey
The New Jersey Department of Health has reported that one out of every six homes in New Jersey has moderate to high levels of radon in it. Don’t assume that it can never happen to you. Make the call and confirm whether or not your home or a home you’re thinking about purchase falls into this category. Dean Arrington Associates can provide you with expert-level radon testing services and let you know if you have anything to worry about when it comes to this deadly gas.
Where does radon come from?
Radon comes from the soil and rocks underneath many New Jersey homes. There is uranium in the soil and rock that breaks down naturally and causes radon to travel up through the ground and into our homes. It can enter homes through cracks in your foundation, expansion joints, and other small holes. Even just a tiny space can allow large amounts of radon to enter your home undetected throughout the years. Calling on a company like Dean Arrington Associates to perform radon testing in High Bridge, NJ, Short Hills, NJ, and Branchburg, NJ is the only way to find out if your home has been exposed.
Risks of Living with High Levels Of Radon
More than 20,000 people lose their lives due to radon exposure every single year, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Most pass as a result of lung cancer caused by radon, which is actually the second-leading cause of lung cancer overall and the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. A simple radon inspection from Dean Arrington Associates can help you identify if you have an issue in your home and allow you to act quickly towards a resolution.
At Dean Arrington Associates, we can perform radon testing in High Bridge, NJ, Short Hills, NJ, and Branchburg, NJ. However, we do not offer radon mitigation services. It would be unethical for us to provide homeowners with both testing and mitigation. However, we can help you obtain the mitigation services you need if we find elevated radon levels in your home.
