Radon Testing
Reasons: Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas, produced naturally in the ground by normal decay of uranium and radium. Radon gas is present in varying amounts throughout the country. Studies indicate that the result of extended exposure to high levels of radon gas/radon progeny produce an increased risk of lung cancer.

Art Fennell Report by Dr. Subash Rashat
Art Fennell Reports examines new studies that say some granite countertops in peoples kitchens may have Radon.

The EPA recommends that the average radon exposure rate not exceed 4.0pCi/L. According to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, one out of five houses in Cherry Hill and one out of ten in Evesham  has radon level exceeding the EPA limit. Hera Environmental, LLC. offers a highly skilled and professional staff using state of the art instruments to perform extensive testing to determine radon entry points and recommend proper remediation.

Tests and Certifications:

Eperm Detectors:
A passive integrating detector used for measuring radiations (alpha, beta, gamma, and neutrons) and radioactive gases and vapors (radon, thoron and tritium). Hera Environmental, LLC. uses e-perm canisters frequently due to the accuracy of the canisters. They do not collect moisture creating true results.
Charcoal Canisters: A passive test device that does not require electrical current to operate. They are generally used for short-term testing (approx. 48 hours). At the end of the test period, the kits are mailed to a regional radon laboratory for analysis

The New Jersey DEP has set forth recommended action guidelines for further action. The DEP recommendations are summarized.
