Radon Testing Naples, Marco, Bonita Springs, Ft Myers & Cape Coral

Florida Radon Certification Program provides the rules for radon testing in Florida. 

We have been certified since 1999 and performed over 23,000 radon tests in our area. Homeowners and homebuyers should know that almost all first floor condominiums in Naples and Fort Myers tested have elevated radon levels. Elevated radon levels are a health concern but radon mitigation should be considered as just another home repair. Methods used this area for reducing radon levels bring fresh air into the home which also help reduce other indoor air quality issues such as off gassing of VOC gases from glues, caulks, paint, etc in furniture, and building supplies used in construction.

Both long term and short term radon test devices should be placed in a room that is used regularly (like a living room, playroom, den, or bedroom) but not in the kitchen or bathroom. If a buyer is planning on using a part of the home that the seller does not currently use, they may consider having that area tested, such as unfinished lower levels.

GOT GAS?

Our Certified Indoor Environmentalists are FL DOH certified radon measurement technicians and can legally perform radon tests for all of Marco Island, Bonita Springs, Naples, Estero, Ft Myers, Lehigh Acres, Sanibel Island and Cape Coral homeowners and buyers.
Radon
Florida law requires the person that places and picks up the radon test must be certified by the FL DOH to do so. (example: Doug Wall R1751) 
AND 
The REPORT must come from a FL DOH certified Radon Measurement Business (example: WallRadon Testing Inc. RB1938)

Real Estate
We perform Radon Tests for Real Estate transactions using a Femto Tech monitor with hour by hour reading of the radon level, barometric pressure, temperature and humidity. We also use a passive radon test from Air Chek, Inc. as a quality control test with every monitor to ensure you receive the BEST test.

Assisted Living Facilities & Multifamily Complexes
We use passive radon tests from Air Chek which can be a “short term” test 2 to 4 days or a “Long Term” test (Alpha Track) 90 days to 12 months.

Radon is a gas produced by the radioactive decay of the element radium and has a half-life of 3.8 days.  Because it is a gas, Radon can more easily leave the rocks and soils by escaping into fractures and openings in rocks and into the pore spaces between grains of soil.  The soil's permeability controls the amount and rate at which Radon is able to enter a structure.  The three factors that determine a soil's permeability are: the amount of water present in the pore space, the percentage of pore space in the soil and the interconnectedness of those pore spaces.  Coarse sand and gravel therefore allow for a greater amount of Radon to move through it as opposed to more permeable soils like clay.  The more readily Radon can pass through the soil, the greater opportunity it has to collect inside a building.   
In the United States, Radon is second only to cigarette smoking in causing lung cancer.   Radon is oderless and colorless and therefore unrecognizable when present. 
.
According to the Florida Department of Health: "In some areas of Florida, one out of two homes has excessive amounts of radon."  

We recommend all homes and multifamily units be tested for radon. Many buyers of multifamily units want to have random testing for radon. This is not the best method for determining if a complex needs radon mitigation in our experience. Test all 1st floor units.

Many IAQ professionals have also had the same experience:

If the client (buyer) of multifamily buildings do not test all of the buildings and all units the liability for tenant exposure to radon could be a problem in the future. Testing of non-occupied spaces such as storage rooms and elevator shafts are helpful information for radon mitigation but not required for home or unit exposure concerns.

  For an in-depth look at radon, the United Staes Environmental Protection Agency (E.P.A.) has extensive information available for the general public:


Although radon gas is a serious health threat to all of us, too often, it is ignored and or misunderstood.It is a serious health concern but best considered as just another home repair when mitigated properly

"The state of Florida has a mandatory radon testing program for public facilities in the majority of counties in Florida. These public facilities include public and private schools, state licensed day care centers, and 24 hour care facilities such as nursing homes and hospitals."  FL DOH
Interestingly however, Collier and Lee Counties do not fall under this mandatory testing.  This is a concern as the Florida Department of Health shows that 1 in 4 residential dwellings in Lee and Collier counties have radon levels above the established limit considered safe.

Your Marco Island, Cape Coral, Naples or Bonita Springs radon test MUST be performed by a FL DOH certified Radon Measurement Business and the person placing and picking up the test MUST also be FL DOH certified to do so.

Marco Island consumers should check that the person placing their radon test is Florida DOH certified to do so. http://www.doh.state.fl.us/environment/community/radon/meastlist.htm

Your Marco Island radon test report must be from a FL DOH certified Radon Measurement Business.

Bonita Springs radon test must be placed and picked up by FL DOH certified radon measuremnet individuals. http://www.doh.state.fl.us/environment/community/radon/meastlist.htm 
Bonita Springs consumers should be cautious about who issues their radon report, it must come from a Florida DOH certified Radon Measurement Business.

For a "legal" test, Cape Coral consumers should understand that the person placing their radon test is FL DOH certied for radon testing. The individual must be certified not the home inspection company or the "boss".

Naples Consumers should know:

WallRadon Testing, Inc., Radon and Mold Professionals is not now associated with, nor ever have been associated with Wayne Dean, Radon Man Inc.  Radon and Mold Professionals does not now or in the past or in the future conduct any business with Radonman Inc., Wayne Dean & Associates.  Naples consumers should always request a Current certificate of insurance from any service provider they hire.
