Every property is at risk of having radon, regardless of the building style, location, or whether nearby properties have high radon levels. Although low levels of radon in a property generally don’t pose a problem, high levels are considered unhealthy and dangerous.
Getting your Charlotte property tested with a professional radon company such as Affordable Environmental Services is the best and most accurate way to know if your home or business has high radon levels. Our team can confirm high radon levels if you have already tested your property with a store-bought kit, or we can conduct a first-time test on your building.
We test each property in accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines and North Carolina state guidelines. Our radon tests are 94% accurate and allow you to safely and effectively determine if radon levels are normal at your home or business.
Affordable Environmental Services recommends the best mitigation system based on where the radon is entering your property and how high the levels are.
For example, homes in Charlotte with crawl spaces tend to benefit most from crawl space encapsulation, which involves adding a vapor barrier to prevent radon from entering the crawl space.
On the other hand, commercial properties or homes with concrete floors or basements may need an active mitigation system in which the pressure between the subfloor and the building interior is altered to reduce the amount of radon coming into the property.
Charlotte properties that do not test high for radon will not require a mitigation system. However, we do recommend re-testing your home or business after any renovations, before a basement is used as a living space, or before selling your property.
