Call Us for Home Inspections for Radon in Ashburn, VA



Radon, a naturally occurring radioactive gas, is extremely hazardous to your health. It is an odorless, tasteless and invisible gas produced when uranium naturally decays in soil and water.

Because 90 percent of the land in the Northeast and a majority of the Mid-Atlantic is likely to have elevated radon levels, every home should be tested for radon.

Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon can also enter your home through well water and your home can trap radon inside.

Any home can have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes without basements. In fact, you and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home. That is where you spend most of your time.

The professionals at Donofrio & Associates have the training and tools to detect radon in a home. If you don't feel like reading all of this click here to watch an informative video about everything you need to know about radon.


Our Radon Detection Process

We use an Active Continuous Radon Monitor for testing, which require power to function. They continuously measure and record the amount of radon or its decay products in the air.

These devices provide an hour by hour report which will reveal any unusual or abnormal swings in the radon level during the testing period. . Click here for a sample report
