Radon Gas - Make Sure to Get Your Home Tested
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that seeps from the ground into your home through cracks in your basement walls and floors. Radon can cause health problems - according to the EPA, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. The EPA recommends testing your home for radon after any lifestyle changes, renovations and every two years as part of routine home maintenance.
No matter where you live, your home should be tested for radon, as the test is easy and inexpensive. Where tests show radon levels at 4 pCi/L or higher, the home can be fixed through well established venting techniques.
