Radon Inspection (EPA-Approved)
Radon is a gaseous element found in nature, primarily around mines, granite and limestone. Radon is particularly prevalent around the Appalachian Mountains and Iowa. Radon is radioactive. While in small quantities it poses no health hazards, the gas has been known to accumulate in houses, seeping in through the foundation.
Since radon is a colorless and odorless gas, it's important to have an experienced home inspector test and evaluate a property you may be considering for the presence of radon. Most homes have a small degree of this element, but occasionally homes are found with large concentrations that can be a health hazard. If a considerable amount of radon is found, the home can be vented to improve the air quality.
