Radon Testing & Risks: What Lincoln Area Residents Need to Know, Lincoln, Nebraska

Radon is a serious concern in Nebraska. The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services stresses radon testing for the state’s homeowners regardless of geographical location, and that sentiment is echoed by the team at Z&H Enterprises (d.b.a.  A to Z Radon Solutions and Zeller Home Inspections). Our company provides thorough radon testing and mitigation services to improve the air quality for residents of Lincoln, NE, and surrounding areas.

Our team wants you to understand the following about radon gas risks and testing:

Radon Risks

Radon is an odorless gas that enters the home in many ways, including cracks in floors, construction joints, wall cavities, gaps around pipes, and the water supply. Produced by decay from naturally-occurring uranium in soil, it is the leading cause of lung cancer in nonsmoking individuals. The Environmental Protection Agency links radon gas to about 21,000 lung cancer deaths in the United States every year.

Radon Testing

Radon testing falls into short- and long-term testing categories. Short-term tests last 2-7 days and serve as inexpensive initial screenings. Your radon experts at Z&H Enterprises offer two short-term testing options, a DIY charcoal test and a Continuous Radon Monitor test.

Lincoln-NE-radon-testingLong-term radon testing lasts three months to a year and provides an average of your home’s radon exposure over an extended period. Z&H Enterprises provides the Alpha-Track Test as a long-term radon testing option.

More than half of radon tests in Nebraska are above the level of 4.0 pCi/L and require radon mitigation to lower the radon level. We offer free estimates to take a look at your home for the best option to reduce the radon level in your home. Your Lincoln radon gas experts provide outstanding mitigation services and will design the best plan for you.

Do not allow this silent intruder to affect your home’s indoor air quality. Be proactive by contacting Z&H Enterprises today.
