Radon gas decays into radioactive particles that can get trapped in your lungs when you breathe. As they break down further the release small bursts of energy. This can damage ling tissue and lead to lung cancer over the course of your lifetime. Not everyone exposed to elevated levels of radon will develop lung cancer, and the amount of time between exposure an the onset of the disease may vary by many years.
There are many different test for radon that can range from 48 hours up to 1 year. The most popular choice is normally a 48-72 hour test that an inspector can administer and send in for lab results. Once test results come back your inspector can better determine your risk of radon exposure or the lack thereof. A radon test can be a standalone or add-on to your standard home inspections.
