Radon is a radioactive gas. It’s a byproduct of the decaying Uranium in the soil. Although harmless in the environment, radon becomes a serious health hazard when it creeps into the home.
Radon is an odorless gas; you can’t smell it even if it’s around. As a result, most people end up living with it and develop serious respiratory disorders down the road.
Your next home may have alarming levels of radon. The only way to rule out the presence of radon is to get the radon testing done at the time of home inspection.
We provide professional radon testing services using advanced equipment and sensors. The entire process may take anywhere from a couple of days to a week. However, you can rest assured that the results will be accurate.
What if you found out that your perfect home has dangerous levels of radon? Well, it’s not the end of the world. You can opt for radon mitigation services that will keep your home radon-free as long as you wish to live there. However, if the radon levels are extremely high, consider walking away and keep looking until you find your next perfect home.
If your prospective property fares well on all inspection touchpoints and the checklist looks great, the final step is to get the radon testing done. For that, Clear Sight Inspections has got your back.
Now let’s just assume that you skip the radon testing part and move in. You might save a couple hundred dollars but at a huge cost. Prolonged exposure to radon can put you at severe health risks and give you respiratory conditions like cellular breakdown in the lungs, asthma, breathing hypersensitivities, etc., and that’s just the beginning. The complications triggered by radon exposure can even lead to death.
At Clear Sight Inspections, Staten Island, New York, we utilize advanced equipment to conduct radon testing and give you a report at the end of the testing so that you can make an educated purchase decision.

Radon gas exposure is the second biggest cause of lung cancer, after cigarette smoking. This radioactive gas is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, making it difficult to detect its presence without a professional radon test. Every year, about 18,000 people die of lung cancer caused by excessive radon exposure. It’s further estimated that every 1 in 15 U.S. households has above-threshold radon concentration levels, as recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Radon (Rn) is one of the heaviest known gases and radioactive. With such high radioactive characteristics, it can also damage the DNA of a living cell leading to abnormalities and a variety of health conditions.
Though radon can be found in almost anywhere across the globe, radon concentration levels can be unusually high in homes in regions with high levels of ground uranium, including specific regions in New England and northern parts of America.
The first step to protect yourself and your family is to check the concentration of radon in the home. We provide radon tests using specialized equipment to give you an accurate measurement of radon concentration levels. If the radon measurement is greater than 4 picocuries per liter, then it is recommended that you install a radon mitigation system. The most common radon mitigation systems use a fan to pull in radon from beneath the house, and vent it outdoors where it is quickly diluted to safe levels.

Testing for radon is crucial for more reasons than just prevention. Radon is a radioactive gas that could exist in your home but can’t be seen, smelled, or tasted. You should be aware that radon causes lung cancer. There are no obvious signs of getting affected by radon; problems only become apparent after years of exposure. The significance of adequate radon mitigation is, therefore, paramount.
Radon problems can occur in any home. Radon generally enters your home through foundation fractures from the soil and becomes trapped there. And the only way to detect the presence of radon in your home is through testing. We at Clear Sight Inspections offer thorough radon testing services.
