Before buying a home, be sure to get tested to ensure you're radon-free!
Springtime is upon us, which means the season of home selling and buying is here. Before buying or selling a home, there’s a list of tasks that you must complete. For example, checking any mechanical issues, such as roofing, furnace, and water problems could be your priority. However, another item that should be on the top of your list is testing for radon.
Radon is an invisible natural gas that sneaks into our homes and infects the air we breathe. This tasteless and scentless gas can get into the house through cracks and holes in the foundation. Once the gas has entered the home, it can get trapped. When inhaled, you have a higher risk of being diagnosed with serious health problems.
Spending copious amounts of time inside can increase the risk. Local geology, construction materials, and house structures remain among the many reasons radon levels in a home will rise. But lucky for you, there are solutions.
