Georgia Radon Testing
Full analysis, recognized in all fifty states and every US Territory
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S EPA) and the Surgeon General’s Office have estimated that as many as 20,000 lung cancer deaths are caused each year by radon. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon-induced lung cancer costs the United States over $2 billion dollars per year in both direct and indirect health care costs.
Homes and businesses in Georgia are at risk. Official Radon Testing is available to all Georgia residents

What do the colors mean?
|Zone 1 counties have a predicted average indoor radon screening level greater than 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter) (red zones)||Highest Potential|
|Zone 2 counties have a predicted average indoor radon screening level between 2 and 4 pCi/L(orange zones)||Moderate Potential|
|Zone 3 counties have a predicted average indoor radon screening level less than 2 pCi/L (yellow zones)||Low Potential|
Most U.S EPA lifetime Safety Standards for Carcinogens are established based on a 1 in 100,000 risk of death. Most scientists agree that the risk of death for Radon at 4 pCi/L is approximately 1 in 100.
At 4 pCi/L EPA action level, Radon carries approximately 1000 times the risk of death as any other EPA Carcinogen. It is important to note that the action level is note a safe level, As there are No ‘’SAFE” levels of Radon gas.
Why test For RADON?
- RADON is a silent killer – A colorless, odorless, tasteless radioactive natural gas, on the periodic table, symbol RN
- RADON is leading cause of lung cancer in non smokers.
- EXPOSURE to Radon is responsible for an estimate 20,000 CANCER deaths per year
- US Surgeon General, CDC, and HUD all recommend testing before all home purchase
- RADON is a health hazard with a simple Solution – elevated levels can be reduced and repair
