Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the country. One in 15 homes has a high level of indoor radon. This is a problem you should be concerned with. In fact, the U.S. Surgeon General and the EPA recommend that all homes be tested.

Don’t panic – homes that demonstrate high radon levels can be fixed by stopping the inflow and cleaning up the residue.

Two Reasons Why You Need to Test for Radon in Nashville?

1. Radon Has Been Found In Homes All Over the U.S. and Tennessee.

It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon can also enter your home through well water. Your home can trap radon inside.

Any home can have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. In fact, you and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home. That is where you spend most of your time.

Nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level (4 pCi/L or more). Elevated levels of radon gas have been found in homes right here in Nashville. Contact your state radon office for information about radon in your area.

2. EPA and the Surgeon General Recommend That You Test Your Home

Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon.

You cannot predict radon levels based on state, local, and neighborhood radon measurements. Do not rely on radon test results taken in other homes in the neighborhood to estimate the radon level in your home. Homes which are next to each other can have different radon levels.

Testing is the only way to find out what your home’s radon level is.

One of the many invisible dangers that may be hiding in your home is radon. Radon is a carcinogenic, radioactive gas that is produced from uranium breakdown in soil and circulates in the atmosphere. Entry into the air that you breathe usually occurs due to cracks in the ground as well as through wells. Your home can then become the harbinger of this deadly gas without your knowledge!

Homes that are infiltrated with radon are deadly and require radon mitigation from the soil surrounding a house. Seeping into the house through the foundation the gas can be detected by installing a special alarm system. Used in conjunction with a smoke detector the radon gas is measured and an alarm is sounded once the danger level has been reached. However, even the smallest amount of gas can be dangerous. Acting to asphyxiate residents of a house the drowsiness puts a person to sleep who may not wake up without proper ventilation and fresh air entering their lungs.

Radon is a leading cause of lung cancer in North America. Your house remains at risk for radon regardless of the property age. Luckily for you, this is readily preventable by investing in a home inspection from our inspection experts.

Before selling a house, many people test their property for the possibility of radon gas. Professional radon testing services offer a complete home testing solution that delivers a report to the homeowner about the amount of any gas and the danger that it poses to a homeowner. The company that provides testing and analysis also provides radon mitigation to PA households that are putting their property up for sale. An inspection of the home is typical for every resale home that this listed on the market. Usually, the buyer requests the inspection and is accountable for the cost of property inspection. But if a problem with the house is found such as leaking roof, mold in the bathroom or the presence of radon gas it is the responsibility of the seller to fix the issues with their house before the sale proceeds.

The repairs and restorations that are needed before closing the deal on a home purchase require the owner to front the money for the reparations before finalizing the sale. In some instances, many costly fixes can be deducted from the price of the home if the buyer agrees to make the repairs once they have moved in, but when it comes to the safety of the new owner the responsibility for clearing the property of the deadly radon lies squarely with the seller.

For some people, the inspection and testing of their home are a priority that is taken care of long before putting their home on the real estate market. They take action to detect a potential problem before it is an issue in the negotiation of the price of their house. People that are looking for radon testing services to test their property and mitigate any gas that is found can clear their home of any traces of the gas and move forward with the sale of their home knowing that the buyer will be happy with the results of their inspection.
