Radon: The Silent Killer
Radon is a naturally odorless, tasteless, and colorless radioactive by-product caused by the breakdown of uranium in soil and rock. In a typical outdoor setting, radon is harmless, as it quickly reduces in potency once exposed to the open air.
However, radon in a home or office building can be incredibly dangerous. It is so dangerous that it is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking, with over 20,000 deaths per year.
With Kingston Radon Solutions’ services, you can avoid being a part of this somber statistic. Kingston Radon provides testing, mitigation, and measurement tools to help keep your home or office’s air clean and safe.
LONG TERM ALPHA TRACK TESTING
We offer a long-term test that is placed in your home for a minimum of 91 days. Long term Radon tests are the best indicators of true Radon levels in your home and are suggested prior to mitigating. (Many people feel comfortable mitigating based on getting a C-NRPP Certified Measurement professional testing their home Radon levels). Upon conclusion of the test, send your Alpha Track device to the lab in your prepaid pre-addressed envelope (shipping & lab analysis fees are included in the price of your test) and wait for your results!

SHORT TERM RADON GAS MEASUREMENT
We also offer a short-term Radon test where we come to your home and set up a C-NRPP commercial-grade Approved Radon detection monitor. At the end of the test, we will provide you with a detailed digital report including an hourly breakdown of Radon levels within your home. Short term testing is most applicable in real estate transactions, it gives you an accurate reading for that particular window of time. If Radon levels are over the recommended guidelines you have the option of negotiating a Radon mitigation system cost into the purchase of your home or the potential to negotiate based on follow-up long term test results.
