Indianapolis Radon Testing

Indoor radon gas is a national health problem. The EPA estimates that 21,000 deaths a year from lung cancer are radon-related. Approximately six million U.S. homes are projected to have radon concentrations above the EPA guidelines of four pCi/L. Homes should be tested for elevated radon levels and properly mitigated if radon levels exceed the limit of four pCi/L. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas in rocks and soils underneath a home, which is tasteless, odorless, and colorless. The radon migrates through the soil and into a home through cracks in the foundation, water wells, sump pits, and from outside pressures on the home. Aegis Environmental is certified in residential radon testing and offers the following services:

  • Pre-purchase home inspections
  • Pre-listing home inspections
  • Clearance testing

Frequently Asked Questions About Radon

What is radon?
Radon is a radioactive gas that is undetectable by sight or smell. Radon naturally forms when uranium, thorium, or radium, which are radioactive metals, breaks down in rocks, soil, and groundwater. People are exposed to radon from breathing radon in the air that escapes through cracks and gaps in buildings and homes. According to the EPA, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S., causing approximately 21,000 lung cancer-related deaths annually.

I may have radon in my house; what should I do about it?
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Surgeon General, the American Lung Association, the American Medical Association, and others recommend you have your home tested for radon. The EPA recommends you take action when radon levels are above 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L).

How much will it cost to take care of the problem?
The cost depends on the number of tests you need and will include a consultation/trip fee. If tests determine that the radon levels are above 4 pCi/L, the EPA recommends mitigating the radon. A radon mitigation cost varies depending upon the size and construction of your home and subsurface soil conditions.

We had a fantastic experience with Aegis all along. They were prompt answering and scheduling us for an inspection. Jonathan Hoover came to check our basement for asbestos. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to kindly answer our many questions. It was so reassuring to work with someone so professional, patient, and so accommodating! I would absolutely recommend working with Aegis and won't hesitate hiring their services again in the future.

Mya was my technician and was quick and easy to work with. Their prices are higher then the others but to me it was worth it since they kept their promise time to get results. This made things much easier for me since I was waiting for these results for my mortgage. Thanks Aegis!

Fantastic company to work with. I'm under contract to buy a home and an underground storage tank was discovered by my home inspector. After a call with Aegis, they were able to get out to the property quickly to assess the problem. Turns out, there are FOUR underground storage tanks present since the property is multi-family. They have been very thorough, professional, and communicative to work with so far. I highly recommend working with them for any/all of your environmental remediation/cleanup needs.
