To keep your home safe for you and your family, have your home tested for radon gas. Exposure to radon is the second most common cause of lung cancer after smoking cigarettes. If you’re selling your home, buying a new one, or just want peace of mind about the air quality in your current home, consider these reasons to test your home for radon.
Radon is Tasteless, Odorless, and Colorless
Because radon gas is colorless and odorless, it is impossible to detect without testing. Hire a professional to test your home for radon and find out if there are high levels of the gas in your home.
Test Your Home for Radon to Inform a Potential Buyer
Have your home tested for radon before listing it for sale. This allows time to budget for and install radon mitigation equipment if necessary and helps everything go smoothly during your home’s inspection. You can move forward with the sale more quickly when radon issues have already been addressed.
Radon Gas Causes Respiratory Problems
For non-smokers, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer. When present in the home, radon particles are breathed in and cause respiratory problems. Have a radon test conducted to help prevent health issues related to radon gas exposure.
Test Your Home for Radon Gas to Keep Your Family Safe
One in fifteen houses in the US show high levels of radon. Radon can seep into your home through cracks in your foundation, water sources, and cracks around service pipes. Radon gas is present throughout the United States and a radon test is the only way to be certain your home is healthy and safe.
Whether you’re performing maintenance on your home, selling it, or just moving in, knowing whether you have a radon problem will help keep you and your family safe from its dangerous side effects.
