If you are buying a home or selling your home, have it tested for radon.
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Having it tested is as simple as having a qualified Radon measurement inspector place measurement equipment into the home at proper locations to determine the Radon gas levels. These results will be sent to a lab for analysis and if these levels come back as high, the inspector will take further action to verify the test and determine the recommended actions for you to mitigate the Radon gases by recommending you to a mitigation company.
You can’t know how much your family is at risk unless you test for it.
Through the radon test, we determine if the exposure to radon gas exceeds the levels set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which is 4 pCi/L. At or above this level, the EPA recommends you take corrective measures to reduce your exposure to radon gas. You can also seek information from the seller if the radon-resistant features were used during construction if you are buying a newly constructed home.
