Radon Health Risks. What do you do?
Radon is only second to smoking as a leading cause of lung cancer. Testing your home is very easy.
The higher the level of radon, the greater the risk to your health. Smokers are at an even higher risk.
How do you test?
Purchase the test at a hardware store or order it online. Another option is calling a licensed home inspector to do the test.
If you find that you have a high level of radon in your home you should have the situation fixed.
Call a certified, radon mitigation trained contractor to install a system. Most of them will guarantee their work. Your home will be retested a few days after a system is installed.
If you want to have your home tested we can give you contact information for a few licensed home inspectors. If your home tests high we can also give you contact information for A certified radon mitigation contractor.
SELLING YOUR HOME: If you're selling your home, it's a good idea to have this test. Many buyers will request it. If the test doesn't show a problem you can attach a copy of it to the Property Condition Disclosure. If the test shows a high radon level you will want to fix it for your own good and for the easier sale of your home.
