We perform radon testing with Radalink Radon Monitors throughout Orlando. The process takes about 48 hours for a complete and accurate result. Find out more about our process and about Radon below.

Info About Radon

Present Everywhere

Just like mold, radon gas exists in every environment, even the one you're reading this in right now. It becomes a concern when the gas gets trapped and builds up over time.

Unit of Measure

The EPA states that 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter of air) is the threshold for radon levels. Below 4 is considered safe and above 4 is considered elevated and should be addressed.

Causes of Radon

Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the natural decay of uranium in soil, rocks, water, and some building materials. It is odorless, tasteless, and invisible.

Health Effects

Studies conducted by organizations such as the EPA, National Cancer Institute, and the National Academy of Sciences support the potential negative health effects of long term exposure.

How do we test for radon?

AirCat Monitor

Our team is licensed by the state of Florida and uses an AirCat Continuous Monitor. It is more accurate than over the counter test kits that can be found at home improvement stores. 

Placement in the Home

The AirCat monitor is placed in the home and collects readings for 48-72 hours. The home must be kept in “closed” condition to ensure the most accurate reading.

RadaLink Upload

After sitting in the home for 48-72 hours, the readings are electronically sent to RadaLink, a Georgia based laboratory that is an industry leader in environmental testing.

Detailed Report

RadaLink produces a detailed report within 24-48 hours of receiving the data. It documents the radon level in the home and RadaLink has support staff available for questions and guidance.

Outstanding diligence and professional debrief! Thorough examination, friendly, and courteous.
I love the fact that their website was so easy to maneuver, I was able to skim through the information about different inspections, get a quote and setup an appointment all on their website by myself.Staff is friendly and knowledgeable, giving me confidence in this stage of my home buying process. One the day of inspection the inspector was on time (actually a little early), finished in the allotted time and made me feel as if no question was a dumb question. At the end of the inspection the inspector thoroughly went over his findings with me and sent myself and my realtor copies of the results In a timely manner.I would definitely recommend waypoint and look forward to keeping business with them as well.

I have used Waypoint twice. Once for pre drywall and second was final walkthrough. Both times very professional and very detailed reports. I would highly recommend Waypoint.
