Idaho is one of the worst affected states when it comes to high household radon levels in the United States. Radon is a radioactive gas that has the potential to cause serious harm to human health and is notorious for permeating the earth beneath us, before finding a route into our homes. However, it is impossible to see with the naked eye and that is why so many people could be suffering the consequences without even knowing that they are vulnerable. The only way for you to know for certain what the condition inside your home is to have it tested. So, it is in every Boise residents’ best interest to be seeking out the support of their local radon testing professionals and finding out exactly what the state of their property is. Fortunately for you, at Boise Radon, we are more than capable of helping anybody out, anywhere across the city.
Why is Radon Testing Important?
All of us are aware that radioactive substances are harmful to us but few of us really know what this means, in context. For many, it is a huge shock to find out that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer anywhere in the country – second only to cigarette smoke. It is incredibly harmful and reversing the effects can take years to be successful. So, you want to be doing all that you can to avoid any of these nasty circumstances and having your home radon levels tested at least once every two years.
The good news for you is that radon testing is easy, reliable, and non-invasive. A passive radon test can be set up inside your home and left to collect samples, without you even knowing that it’s there. Either a 7-day charcoal test or a long-term passive test can be implanted in any likely problematic areas, which will allow us to easily collect reliable results about your unique radon issue. These run without the need for electricity and so, you can leave them to take care of the job without any concerns.
On the other hand, we are always able to conduct an active monitoring test if it is going to be more suitable. If you suspect that you might have a radon issue, an active monitor can arguably give you the clearest results. Operating over the course of 12 weeks, these electrically-powered units record consistent data and judge the consistent flow or movement of the element, if it is present.

So, whether it is going to be more suitable for you to have a short, passive testing system installed or one of our highly effective active systems, they are going to give you results that you can trust. Always highly accurate, repeatable, and sustainable, they allow us the ultimate precision in radon testing and enable us to make the most prudent mitigation decisions. So, if you suspect that radon may be finding its way into your home, find out for certain and trust us with providing your next radon test.
