Home Radon Testing for Arlington, VA

The EPA recommends that all homes be tested for radon. The D.C., Maryland, and Virginia area have been identified by the EPA as an area with a higher potential for elevated radon levels. See map for radon zones per the EPA.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is odorless, tasteless, and invisible. It typically moves through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and 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 can have radon. 90% of the land in the Northeast and a majority of the Mid-Atlantic is likely to have elevated radon levels. If not tested, radon can pose a serious danger to your family’s health being the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers.

By having Donofrio & Associates, LLC. test your home for radon, you will have peace of mind knowing the levels of radon.

Our Radon Detection Process

We use a 48-hour Active Continuous Radon Monitor that takes hour by hour measurements. This is placed in the lowest habitable area of the home, typically a basement. The monitor has built-in anti-tampering devices and should not be touched. Normal living conditions can resume during the test, however and it is recommended that all doors and windows be closed 12 hours prior and while the radon machine is running. A report will be provided after the testing period. Click here for a sample report.

    Working with Jason from Donofrio & Associates was truly a great experience. Especially as a first time home buyer, I came with a lot of questions and Jason was able to answer them all with great detail. Incredibly professional as well, … More Jason arrived at the property almost a half hour before me and had already begun examining the exterior of the home. Additionally, the home inspection report was completed and sent back to me within the same day and was very detailed. I would HIGHLY recommend Donofrio & Associates and will definitely be hiring them again for my next home purchase. Thank you!

    We were recommend Donofrio & Associates from our realtor to do our home inspection. We went with them due to their many positive reviews and are so glad to add to that number. Matthew was our home inspector today and at the very start … More he walked us through the process and every step of the home inspection and allowed us to ask any questions up front. He never once got annoyed when we shadowed him and followed him around as he did his inspection. In fact, any time we were right there he would just talk out loud explaining every step of what he was doing. We feel we got to know our new home very well in those few hours. He pointed out all of the issues he would be reporting to us and explained everything to us in detail and answered any concerns we had about the issues. You could tell he gave his honest opinion and wanted to make sure this place was a safe good home. Honestly, it felt like I was doing this home inspection with my dad. We felt taken care of and are now so excited to move into our new home!
