Radon Testing in Orlando

About Radon Testing

Did you know that exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, and lung cancer deaths, in the US behind smoking? See information on Florida Health.

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.

Waypoint did a great job with my inspection on my first home. I’ve had another inspection with a different company before for a different house I almost purchased. I was not happy with that company and they were even giving me jobs to do, such as checking outlets for power etc, to help them make the inspection faster. It made me sort of uncomfortable because I’m not an inspector and did not want to feel I am missing something because I don’t know what I’m doing. I did not have to worry about that with Waypoint obviously. My inspector was very thorough. Great attention to detail. He took his time to get everything right while I was able to talk with my family and realtor about the house. I was given a detailed report the same day. Highly recommended. Thank you!
