GLE’s radon testing and remediation team provides assessments, consulting, and cost-effective plans and remediation. Radon is an odorless, colorless gas present in rocks and soil, that enters buildings through cracks and holes in foundations and walls. It can also be present in building materials. It readily builds to dangerous levels in contained areas when not properly ventilated.
Radon is a real threat in Florida and throughout the U.S., and can be present even in areas previously thought to be radon-free. Modern green building technologies contribute to radon problems by trapping gases inside tight building envelopes, allowing concentrations to build to dangerous levels. Left unremediated, radon is a significant human health concern, leading to long-term illness and death due to cancer and related diseases.
