WHAT IS RADON?
Radon is an invisible, odorless, and tasteless gas that comes from uranium deposits underground.
WHERE IS RADON FOUND?
Radon can be found in all different geographical areas in the U.S and can get into any type of building. (Homes, offices, schools, etc.)
WHAT DANGER IS IT TO ME?
According to the Surgeon General of the United States, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. today. The risk increases if you are a smoker.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE RADON IN MY HOME?
The only way to know for sure of how much radon is in your home is by having it tested. If you are purchasing a home it is highly recommended that you have a professional perform the test. The reason being is that most inspectors will use testing equipment that have tamper detection devices built into them, whereas the over the counter testing kits do not. Utilizing a testing device that does not have tamper detection in it is fine, but is it a risk that you are willing to take?
OnTrac Property Inspections uses both passive and active (with tamper detection) testing devices to perform its radon testing.
WHAT IF RADON IS FOUND IN MY HOME?
If it is 4.0 pCi/L or higher, you want to have it mitigated. For more information on radon testing, please give us a call, or refer to the details provided by the United States Environmental Protection Agency below.
