Radon Inspection Yorktown Heights
Radon gas is a health hazard with a simple solution. Radon is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas responsible for thousands of deaths per year that could be easily prevented. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, there are various case studies that show that radon gas is only second to cigarette smoke for the cause of lung cancer.
You can’t measure the level of radon gas in your home by using a radon detector on the wall and changing batteries every year. The only way to know the presence of radon gas in your home is to have a home radon test. It does not matter in which state or in what type of home you are living, radon gas testing is the only way to check the level of risk. Whether it is new or old construction, well-sealed or drafty, with or without a basement. It makes no difference. Radon gas is present in all areas of the U.S.
Radon gas is produced from the decay of natural uranium in water, soil, and rock. This radioactive gas is present in the soil and outdoor air and comes into homes through cracks found in a foundation or walls, construction joint, cavity inside walls, gaps in floors, service pipes, etc. According to the Environment Protection Agency, the radon gas enters the home from the soil in contact with basement floors and walls.
After all the testing is done and your radon levels are at 4.0 pCi/L– the minimum action level established by the Environmental Protection Agency or higher, radon mitigation will be the next step. Remember to test your house and get it taken care of as soon as possible. Radon deaths can be reduced with awareness, testing, and proper mitigation.
All of our Radon tests performed with a full Home Inspection now include a Radon Protection Plan! If your initial Radon test comes back below 4.0 pCi/L, you can perform a 2nd Radon test within 120 days of the inspection (or 22 days after closing, whichever is later). If this second test comes back over the 4.0 pCi/L level, the protection plan will pay you up to $1200 after a $250 deductible for the installation of a mitigation system in the home.
