Radon testing is something that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) encourages all home buyers and sellers to have done. Radon occurs naturally in the soil. You cannot smell or see this gas. Radon oozes into houses and buildings via the foundation, basement and even the drains. This gas is found in homes all over the United States, but is even more prevalent in our community with approximately 1 in 4 homes having elevated levels of radioactive radon gas. Testing is the only way to tell if you have high levels of radon in your home.
Radon exposure causes cancer. According to the EPA, it is responsible for the most cancer deaths in non-smokers. Reducing levels of radon in your home is easy — and relatively inexpensive. But, you have to know that it is there first.
