Don’t Take Any Chances: Why Radon Testing is a Must for Homeowners

Radon can damage your lung cells and cause cancer. Due to the fact that radon can be the cause of a fatality, this would be the number one reason you should do radon testing at your new home.

Your new home is a place where you should feel safe. If you are worried about an odorless, colorless gas wreaking havoc on your body — that won’t be a possibility. Continue reading this article for further reasons why you should call and schedule a radon inspector.

Reasons to Do Radon Testing Before You Buy

While you can do radon testing after you buy the home, it is better to know what you’re dealing with before you make a purchase. The only way to tell if there is radon in your home is through inspection so don’t be misled otherwise.

1. Peace of Mind

If there is one thing that you can’t put a price tag on, this is your peace of mind. Fearing for your safety and the safety of your family will cause stress and could lead to stomach ulcers and other challenges.

Having a radon test done on your property will alleviate the fear of radon so you can go back to enjoying your new residence. This naturally occurring radioactive gas isn’t picky about where it decides to show up since it is found all over America — including Florida.

2. Quick Setup

You don’t have to worry about someone being in your house all day and derailing your plans. A radon test takes only a few minutes to set up, and the professional will be out of your home and will need to return a few days later to pick up the radon test.

3. Thorough Testing

Over the next 48 hours, the test will be in place checking for traces of radon in the residence.

4. Immediate Results

Once the professional comes back and picks up the test, you will know your results almost immediately. After the test, depending on the results, you will be able to take the appropriate action.

What to Do If Your Home Has Radon Gas?

If the testing is done and shows there are traces of radon — don’t panic. It can be scary to know your home has radon gas in it even if the levels aren’t high.

While you can do some things on your own like sealing the foundation and improving your home’s ventilation, the EPA recommends working with a qualified radon mitigation contractor to fix the problem with your home.

The process all starts — and ends with a test. Once you’ve worked with a professional to fix your home and get rid of the radon problem, that means it is time to get another test.

You can’t be sure that your home is safe without doing another test after the fix, so don’t skip this step.
