Waukesha Home Inspections & Radon Testing
Our goal at Dairyland Home Inspection is to provide the very best service to our clients. Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and high radon levels and exposure over time can increase your risk. Radon can be easily mitigated from a home to reduce the radon level to lower levels.
Radon testing involves using a continuous radon monitor for 48 hours, which measure the radon level every hour in a home. It gives a average reading for the radon level in the home. Any reading over 4.0pCi/L is a level that the EPA recommends be mitigated to prevent significant exposure to radon.
Southeastern Wisconsin generally has radon levels that vary widely from high to low. It is impossible to know if a home will have a high radon level without conducting an accurate radon test.
When having a radon test conducted ensure the radon tester is using calibrated testing devices and is certified to conduct residential radon testing. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services lists radon test providers who meet recognized standards and have met guidelines by the department. We are one of the few home inspection companies certified in residential radon testing.
We perform radon testing in Racine, Milwaukee, Kenosha, Walworth, Waukesha, and Ozaukee Counties.
