Radon is a naturally occurring, odorless, colorless invisible radioactive gas that can emanate from soil and become a health hazard when it builds up to higher concentrations in our homes. Radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, and the first leading cause of lung cancer in people who have never smoked.
- Test your home for radon — it's easy and inexpensive.
- Buyers often ask if a home has been tested, and if elevated levels were reduced.
- Buyers frequently want tests made by someone who is independent from the home sale and is not the contractor eliminating your radon.
- Buyers might want to know the radon levels in areas of the home (like a basement they plan to finish) that the seller might not otherwise test.
