Testing is the only way to know if you or your family are at risk from radon.

The EPA recommends that every home be tested for radon. Any home can have elevated radon levels, and even homes next to each other can have different levels of indoor radon due to construction and geographic differences.

Buckeye Radon is proud to offer radon tests for both home buyers and sellers, as well as anyone who wants to know the radon concentrations within their current home. Any home can have a radon problem—new homes, old homes, 
well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes without basements. You cannot predict radon levels inside a house based on state, local, or neighborhood radon measurements. Choose a radon test option below.

Radon gas in Ohio

Central Ohio has relatively high natural concentrations of uranium from glacial deposits and shale, which during radioactive decay, produces radium and radon.

The EPA’s current radon action level is four picocuries of radon per liter of air (4 pCi/L). Most counties in central Ohio have high potential for radon, with predicted average indoor greater than the EPA action level. According to one study cited by Ohio Department of Natural Resources Department of Geological Survey, 38% of Ohio’s 88 counties had average indoor radon levels above 4.0 pCi/L, but Licking County’s average was above 8.0 pCi/L. Seven Ohio counties—Carroll, Fairfield, Franklin, Harrison, Knox, Pickaway, and Ross—had average indoor Radon concentrations between 6 and 8 pCi/L.

What is radon gas?


Radon is an odorless, colorless, tasteless, radioactive gas. Radon comes from the decay of radioactive uranium that can be found in small amounts in rocks and soil throughout nature. In areas with disturbed earth, and loose fill, like when a home is built, radon escapes from the soil.

Radon gas exposure is the number one cause of cancer for non-smokers, even greater than second-hand smoke. Most people are exposed to radon gas inside their own homes, and this is their greatest exposure to natural ionizing radiation.
