Radon testing is the only way to detect radon levels in your Indianapolis home, and ensure you are safe from radon gas. We use state of the art continuous radon monitors which are much more effective in detecting radon levels than the once common yet antiquated charcoal canister method. The monitor will sit in the lowest level of the home for a minimum period of 48 hours. Once the test is complete, we will email the results to you in an easy to read report format.

An inspection of the interior of the home, with special emphasis on the basement, crawl space, garage, door and window frames, and other areas that are particularly prone to infestation.
