West Virginia Residents Have Your Home Tested for Radon Gas

Radon Gas BeckleyNo matter where you live or what type of home you own, it is important to have the property tested for radon gas. Radon is a threat throughout the entire country, including in West Virginia. If you have not yet had your property tested for radon, now is the perfect time to act.

It is important to keep in mind that radon is invisible to the naked eye, so there is no way to tell whether or not it is already present in your home. Radon gas is also colorless and odorless, so there is no way to detect it on your own.

Since radon gas is so difficult to detect, it is important to look for a company that specializes in detecting the gas inside your home. SWAT Environmental has specialized equipment needed to detect even trace amounts of radon inside homes in the West Virginia area.

Detecting even small amounts of radon is important, since the dangers posed by this gas can build up over time. Even if you had your home tested a few years ago, it could be worth your while to have the property retested with more sensitive testing equipment.

When you contact SWAT Environmental for radon testing & radon mitigation, you can expect a representative from our company to arrive at your home with testing equipment in tow. Once they arrive, we will use that testing equipment to check for radon gas in the air inside your home.

If the air inside your home tests negative for radon gas, you can rest assured knowing that your family is protected from the dangers posed by this radioactive gas. If your home is found to have high levels of radon gas, there are a number of ways to deal with the problem and render the home safe for human habitation.

The exact procedure used to get rid of radon will vary depending on where the gas is coming from. The sophisticated testing equipment SWAT Environmental uses is able to determine exactly where radon is getting into your home. Once we know that, we can take the necessary steps to remove it from your home.

If the testing equipment determines that radon gas is seeping into your home through the foundation, we will work with you on a strategy to stop the gas at its source. If we find that radon is getting into your home through a contaminated well, we can work with you to make the water clean and reduce any possible health effects. No matter where that radon is coming from, SWAT Environmental radon testing and mitigation will be able to help you deal with it. If you have not yet had your Virginia area home tested for radon gas, the time to correct that situation is now.
