Why it’s Important to Test for Radon

There are many reasons why a home inspection is important and the three main reasons would be for the health of you and your family, reduce the chances of lung cancer, and the other to protect your money.

What you need to know about radon

  • Every home is susceptible to radon and radon gas contaminating the living and breathing atmosphere within the house. Even newly built homes are at risk.
  • Radon gas is formed by the natural breakdown of uranium which is found in soils all over the world. Florida homes and properties need to be tested as they pose a real threat.
  • Radon gas is colorless and odorless making it extremely difficult to detect unless the correct testing equipment is used.

How radon travels and enters the home

 

  • In Florida alone, 1 out of 3 homes have serious radon levels, this only backs up why it’s essential that if you are looking for a property in the state of Florida you need to hire professional home inspection services that includes radon testing.

Lung Cancer

Here in the US, radon gas is the second leading cause behind lung cancer, smoking being the first cause. The EPA recommends and backs radon testing, as well as, the American Lung Association and the Surgeon General.

Money

You need to be certain that the property that you are looking to buy is a safe investment and can be sold on as a good investment should you want to relocate years down the line. Having the property correctly inspected and tested for radon will allow you to have peace about the home. It also allows any high levels to be treated and reduced to safe living levels. Having it sorted before you buy the home will mean that if in the event you want to sell the property the sale will not be restricted due to you having to pay out extra for the testing to appease the next home buyer
