Radon Testing

Radon is a naturally-occurring radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer. Radon testing is the only way to know if there is radon present in your future home. For more information about radon inspections, visit the EPA Website


  • If you are buying or selling a home, have it tested for radon.

  • For a new home, ask if radon-resistant construction features were used and if the home has been tested.

  • Fix the home if the radon level is 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher.

  • Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk and, in many cases, may be reduced.

  • Take steps to prevent device interference when conducting a radon test.

  • EPA estimates that radon causes thousands of cancer deaths in the U.S. each year.

  • *Radon is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year, according to EPA’s 2003 Assessment of Risks from Radon in Homes (EPA 402-R-03-003).

  • The numbers of deaths from other causes are taken from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2005-2006 National Center for Injury Prevention and Control Report and 2006 National Safety Council Rep

Sewer Scope

Camera Inspection 

To inspect the main sewer line from the house to the public sewer system for possible problems, a sewer scope camera is inserted into the main sewer line also referred to as a cleanout.  The scope then records a video and we watch on a monitor as it travels through the pipes. We have a scope locator so we can mark on the property exact location if an issue is identified. 

Three Signs Your Water Main is clogged  

The sooner you recognize the warning signs of main sewer line blockage and call for a sewer line inspection, the better. Clogs in the main sewer line that goes ignored or unnoticed can lead to costly repairs, but can also expose your family to contaminated water. Here are a few signs of possible issues:

  • Multiple backed-up drains. If more than one drain is slow-moving, gurgling, smells bad, or has water backing up, this most likely indicates a main sewer line clog.

  • Water overflows into different plumbing fixtures. This happens because water from one branch line tries to drain away, but the main sewer clog blocks it and forces it to back up into other smaller drains.

  • Drainage in sewer clean out. Remove the clean out cap. if there is sewer water flowing out of the pipe or standing in the pipe, this also indicated you have a sewer line clog.
