High radon levels in any construction are dangerous to your health.
Radon can be a problem in all types of homes, including old homes, new homes, drafty homes, insulated homes, homes with basements, and homes without basements. Local geology, construction materials, and how the home was built are among the factors that can affect radon levels in homes.
High radon levels in any construction are dangerous to your health. All the major health organizations (like the Centers for Disease Control, the American Lung Association, and the American Medical Association) agree with estimates that radon causes thousands of preventable lung cancer deaths every year.
EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) recommends if you are buying or selling a home, have it tested for radon. For a new home, we highly recommend asking if radon-resistant construction features were used and if the home has been tested.
Benefits of getting radon testing include reducing your risk of lung cancer when you reduce radon levels, and adding an additional layer of protection is always a good selling point and will give the new homeowners the security they need when making one of the biggest financial decisions of their lives.
