Radon Gas Inspection

Radon gas inspections can be performed with or without a home inspection. Radon is naturally occurring, odorless, and colorless gas produced by the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. Because radon is a gas, it can enter buildings through openings or cracks in the foundation. The radon gas itself decays into radioactive solids, called radon daughters. The radon daughters attach to dust particles in the air, and can be inhaled. The inhalation of radon daughters has been linked to lung cancer.
Radon Gas Testing
Radon has been identified as the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States (second only to smoking.) The Environmental Protection Agency reports that radon causes between 15,000 and 22,000 lung cancer deaths every year in the United States.
Most major health organizations (including The American Medical Association, National Cancer Institute, and American Lung Association) for years have known that radon increases lung cancer risk. However, recent studies have confirmed that the risk is evident even at levels much lower than earlier studies suggested. The good news is this: Radon testing is easy and inexpensive. Homes with elevated radon levels (even at 2.7) can be fixed using current radon remediation technology.
