Should I Test for Radon During My Home Inspection?

The answer 99% of the time is YES.  But before we get to all that, for those who may not know, we need to start with the question – What is Radon? According to the Natural Standard, The Authority on Integrative Medicine, “Radon is an invisible radioactive gas that has no taste, smell or color. Over time, the uranium in rocks and soil decays and radon gas is released. The gas lets off radioactive particles. 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 or radon progeny. The radon progeny attach to dust particles in the air and can be inhaled.”  As the EPA states, ”Any radon exposure has some risk of causing lung cancer. The lower the radon level in your home, the lower your family’s risk of lung cancer. Based on a national residential radon survey completed in 1991, the average indoor radon level is about 1.3 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) in air in the United States. The average outdoor level is about 0.4 pCi/L.”

Some areas are more suseptible to Radon gas leakage than others. Ask your Realtor or Home Inspector if they recommend an inspection.
