Radon Home Inspections
Hire the Home Inspector Who Can Do More for You
Don't forget to schedule Radon testing before buying or selling a home. It's recommended that you proactively test for radon during a home inspection to make sure you're not exposing your family to dangerous health hazards as Radon has higher concentrations in NW Indiana. Once you have the results, you can take any necessary steps to remediate the problem. More information about Radon can be obtained at https://www.epa.gov/radon.
What is radon?
Radon is a dangerous gas that could be lurking in your home without your knowledge. It is been blamed for 21,000 yearly deaths from lung cancer, and is currently the second-leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking. Radon is odorless so without the proper testing you won't know it is in your new home or business. A professional radon testing can tell you if the radon levels in your home are dangerous.
Radon gas forms as the result of uranium decaying in soil. The radioactive gas is released from the soil and travels upward into the air. Radon becomes harmful when it travels through a house and becomes trapped inside. The gas builds up and can become a carcinogen if it is not removed. The leading radon mitigation methods that can be used are best left to professional radon mitigation contractors.
