 Q: What is radon, and why should I care?
A: Radon, is the second leading cause of lung cancer, and the first leading cause among non-smokers. It is a radioactive, colorless, odorless, tasteless noble gas, occurring naturally as a decay product of radium. Radon comes from the ground, and is everywhere in our atmosphere. However, its concentration can vary widely in buildings where it can build up in the interior air.

  Q: What exactly does the radon monitor record?
A: Our monitors record radon concentration, temperature, barometric pressure, and relative humidity once per hour for the duration of the test. Our monitors also have a sensor that detects if the monitor has been moved during a test. 

 Q: How long does the radon test last?
A: Tests take a minimum of 48 hours to complete. Our radon monitors can collect data for up to 5 days.
