Radon is an odorless. tasteless, radioactive gas that
emits from soil and usually enters your house through
cracks and other holes in the foundation. Your home
traps radon inside, where it can build up. Any home may
have a the problem and need radon inspection. This means new and old homes,
well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without
basements could require a radon test.
A Chicago Inspection Agency Radon Test requires 2 days of capture within a
suspected area and then 3-5 days for testing the radon exposure
rating. Your property is at risk if over the EPA
maximum 4.0 Pico Curies per liter of air (4 pCi/L). We
advise you on the results of the radon inspection
immediately after the test.
