Radon

Radon is a radioactive cancer causing gas that comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil. It is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert. The release of this radioactive gas enters the air you breathe, causing a potential health risk to you and your family. Exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in America. Approximately 21,000 people die every year from Radon exposure. A radon test is inexpensive, accurate and if elevated levels are found the radon is reduced to acceptable levels very reasonably. Having a professional radon test by Boardman Home Inspection, Inc. ensures the health and safety to your family. Homeowners, sellers, buyers, renters all benefit from having a quality radon screening test.

Testing is the only way to find out about your home's radon level. There are two key elements in a quality radon test. One, the knowledge and ability of the individual placing the test. Two, the amount and quality of the data recorded. Both are very important! Boardman Home Inspection has the knowledge, ability and uses the femto-TECH monitor which provides the highest accurate hourly data of the radon, temperature, barometric pressure and humidity as well as providing tamper resistance measures. A continuous 48-hour radon screening in accordance with EPA protocol for real estate transactions and printable readout at the end of the monitoring session will give you all the information you need.

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month! The Ohio Dept of Health along with the Environmental Protection Agency, the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists and the Ohio Association of Radon Professional wants everyone to be aware of radon, the danger to your lung health, the importance of having radon levels tested in all homes and the easy solution to reduce the level of radon you are exposed to.

Carbon Monoxide

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is an exhaust gas created by internal combustion devices such as home furnaces and car engines. When properly vented, it causes no health problems. Incomplete combustion, poor venting, back drafting and numerous other issues can allow elevated levels of Carbon Monoxide in your home undetected. Because it is odorless and colorless, CO gas is difficult to detect and may be present at random time intervals. The symptoms of Carbon Monoxide poisoning also may go unnoticed, often resembling flu-like symptoms of fatigue, nausea, and diarrhea. Repeated and lengthy exposure to CO gas can lead to neurological disorders, brain damage, or even death. Using a CO monitor that reads and logs over several days the air indoor CO levels can allow clear concise printable readout of what is actually accruing. Boardman Home Inspection conducts continual CO screening to give you accurate printable readings.
