Around this time every year the Environmental Protection agency gears up to promote awareness of the dangers of Radon gas. Radon gas is everywhere and in every home and as an Atlanta home inspector, we wanted to take the time to educate you and give you more information about the dangers of radon and the effects that it can have on your family. Radon is one of the main causes of lung cancer and when you know someone who has never smoked a day in their life and they have lung cancer, there's a good chance that radon is the cause of it. Many people have never heard of radon gas or if they have, for some reason they think that it is probably not in their home. They don't realize that you can't see it, smell it or taste it, it is just there.
When we provide a home inspection one of the questions that we ask is "would you like for us to perform a continuous 48 hour radon test with your home inspection. We have several questions come up and once we get the information into the consumers hand, most of the time they choose to go ahead with a radon test. Here lately it seems like every radon test we have done, has come back with a high reading. I would suggest you get your home checked for the safety of your family. Below is a link to a longer article that we wrote about the dangers of radon. Please take time to check it out.
We recommend that when you get a radon test done, that you chose to have a 48 hour continuous test preformed. This means that someone will come in and set up a continuous monitor, the monitor will take a reading every hour and record it. It then will give you the average at the end of the 48 hour period.
