What is Radon?
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas produced by the breakdown of uranium in rocks and soils. Radon gas is tasteless, colorless and odorless. The only way to know if it is in your home is to test for it.
Is Radon a Problem in Tennessee?
Yes. The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) consider radon to be a very serious problem in our state. No matter where you live in Tennessee, there is the potential for radon to enter your home. Regardless of your zone designation or geographic location, all homes should be tested for radon. There is no zone that has no risk factor for radon.

The Tennessee Department of Health and the Tennessee Radon Program support the standing of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that every home should be tested in order to know that home's radon level. In zip codes with few radon results, there is low confidence that the reported average is representative of radon levels in that area. This map is only for informational purposes. All test results are from do-it-yourself tests done by home owners or tests done by radon measurement professionals. The Tennessee Department of Health and the Tennessee Radon Program are unable to verify the validity of the testing protocols or the physical location where the test kit was reported to have been conducted.
The radon testing that is performed by Effective Home Inspections of Tennessee LLC takes at least 48 hours to complete. A detailed report will be emailed to you upon completion of the test. This report will show the minimum, maximum, and average levels of radon, temperature, humidity, and pressure over the course of the testing period.
