Radon is colorless, odorless, tasteless, radioactive gas. It is created from the natural decay of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. The surgeon general of the United States has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US today. Make sure that your offer to purchase states that should high radon levels be detected, you have the option to radon mitigation or to cancel the offer to buy.
Radon can be present in your current home or one you are considering to purchase. Nearly 8 million US homes, or 1 out of every 15, have radon levels above the EPA's 4 pCi/L "action" limit and nearly 1 out of 6 exceed the EPA's 2 pCi/L "consider action" limit. It is important to know the radon levels, if any, and be aware of radon solutions. At 5 by 5 Home Inspection, LLC, we use the sun nuclear 1028 continuous radon monitor that is EPA verified, NRPP listed, evaluated and approved by the NRSB for use in real estate transactions. We have no incentive for a positive test. Our only interest is an accurate test and offering peace of mind. To schedule your radon test, please call, text or email me at 414-531-5295
