What Is Radon?
Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless radioactive gas that can seep into your home. Radon is a leading cause of lung cancer, and other diseases. Radon can enter your home through cracks in the foundation. It occurs naturally in the ground and the environment. The only way to determine if there is Radon present in your house is by testing. So in answer to the question, should you test your home for Radon – the answer is a resounding YES!
Radon Can Be Present in New Homes and Old Homes
Homeowners should not think that because their house is newly built they don’t have Radon. It is present all over the world, and it is estimated that 1 in every 15 homes in the United States has Radon. Radon can be present in a new home just as well as in an older home. When purchasing a home, be sure a Radon test is included in your home inspection. Your health and that of your family could be at stake!
