What is radon?
Is it harmful to you?
Where does it come from?
How is it measured?
How does one test for radon?
How to get rid of it and are the costs radon mitigation?

The above list of questions is comprehensive and a clear example of the types of questions home buyers and sellers ask when deciding to buy or sell a home. Radon is often tested when a homeowner has a willing buyer who intends to purchase his or her home.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, radon is an naturally occurring odorless gas that comes from the uranium found in the ground. It is invisible gas that mixes with indoor air, which can be harmful to people. It is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in USA, second to smoking. Testing for radon is relatively inexpensive and can be remediated for as little as $1200. It is said that 1/15 homes have elevated levels. One concern when it comes to radon testing is that people are only concerned with it when they intend to sell. If you purchased a home in the past and never had a radon test, you can purchase a do-it-yourself radon testing kit or ask a local home inspector to test your home.

If you find you have elevated levels, you should test again before investing in a mitigation system. Also, you may not be able to remove or eliminate radon completely, but you can bring levels to as close to zero as possible with a mitigation system. Keep in mind that any house that has direct contact with the earth is susceptible to radon. In fact, certain parts of the United States are more suspectible than other areas. If a house contains a radon mitigation system, you should test and decide if an upgrade in the system is necessary.

Below you will find a comprehensive video that will give you all of the facts and answer all of your questions when it comes to radon.
