Radon is a gas that is released from the natural decay of radium and uranium rocks in the soil. This radioactive gas typically enters homes through the basement and foundation. Because newer houses are so well sealed, radon can build up in homes over time.
You can’t see or smell radon. Short term exposure to radon produces no symptoms. However, Exposure to high levels of radon is serious. Radon exposure is one of the leading risk factors for lung cancer in non-smokers, according to medical experts.
The EPA recommends that radon levels not exceed four picocuries per liter (pCi/L) of air. If radon testing reveals elevated levels of radon in your home, the EPA recommends reducing levels by installing a system designed to reduce radon.
There’s no way to tell whether or not you are being exposed to radon levels above what is considered to be safe by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) — unless you opt for radon testing.
Who Should Test For Radon?
According to the EPA, all buyers should opt for radon testing. Even if you are not buying or selling a home, you should test radon levels every couple of years or so. Radon testing is not expensive, and it could make a significant impact on you and your family’s health down the road.
As a nonprofit organization, our wish is for all of our neighbors to have access to a healthy environment to live. Therefore, we offer FREE diy radon testing kits to those who qualify.
If you are in the process of buying a new house, you might not have given a lot of thought to the sewer system. However, the last thing that you want is to have a major problem with your sewer lines. At Nonprofit Home Inspections, we offer video sewer scope inspections. Our inspectors have earned plumbing certifications through the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors.
A sewer scope inspection can help uncover broken lines, pipe separation, roots growing in your sewer lines, and obstructions. Our inspectors have plumbing certifications through the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors. During a sewer scope inspection, we use specialized thermal video equipment to get a detailed look at your sewer lines from the cleanout to the main sewer line.
Mold is a natural part of the environment. Mold can be found everywhere and is usually not a problem outdoors. In fact, these fungi help break down dead organic matter and regenerate the soil. However, mold becomes a serious problem when it starts to grow on surfaces indoors. That is because mold can have a significant negative impact on indoor air quality.
Mold testing is the best way to know if your home has a mold problem. In addition to being certified Oregon Home Inspectors, Nonprofit Home Inspections is certified by the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants to conduct mold testing.
