Your Local Radon Testing Company
Since radon – an invisible radioactive gas – is naturally occurring and found in most homes in the United States, Radon testing is essential to ensure the safety of you and your family.
According to scientists, radon is the cause of up to 22,000 lung cancer deaths in the United States annually. Radon exposure combined with smoking cigarettes further increases the risk of lung cancer, so testing for radon is crucial.
While short term radon testing can tell homeowners if they are in immediate danger, most professionals recommend long-term radon testing because radon levels tend to fluctuate rapidly, meaning they can be low one day and high the next.
We offer certified radon testing and radon removal services throughout Northern Ohio.
Erie Environmental provides OSHA – and NESHAPS – compliant, AHERA-certified Radon testing and removal services for residential and commercial buildings, industrial sites, municipalities, schools, and colleges. During removal, fully contain the radon and strictly follow all safety guidelines.
Why Professional Radon Testing is Important
Radon Testing Vs. Professional Radon Testing
Anyone can buy a DIY radon testing kit from the local hardware store. The issue is these radon test results are usually innacurate since they are not performed by professionals.
Radon levels can change on a daily basis, so it’s possible to get an inaccurately low radon reading when using a diy radon test kit.
Professional radon testing ensures without a doubt that your home is safe.
Testing the correct area for the right amount of time
Most homeowners will mistakenly place the radon detector at the lowest level (such as a basement or crawlspace). Professional radon testing ensures that the radon detector is placed in the correct spot for the right amount of time for accurate radon test results.
Short Term Vs. Long Term Radon Tests
Depending on the device, short-term radon detectors can measure radon for up to 3 months. Whereas long-term radon detector tests determine the average radon levels for over 90 days. Measuring radon concentration on a long-term basis gives a more accurate picture of the radon levels in your home. A local radon service professional can recommend the most appropriate test for your home.

Radon Gas Symptoms
Although the only way to tell if your home or business has high radon levels is to test for it, these are the telltale radon poisoning symptoms to be aware of:
- chest pain, especially when you cough or laugh
- frequent infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia
- persistent cough
- coughing up blood
- shortness of breath
If you have any of the above symptoms, make an appointment with a doctor and get your home or business tested for radon as soon as possible.
