What is Radon?

What is radon? Simply, radon is a very common issue in Ohio home buying and selling. Radon is a cancer causing radioactive gas found in many homes, but it is often unchecked. According to the EPA, radon is estimated to cause thousands of lung cancer deaths in the U.S. each year. I highly recommend that all my clients have a radon inspection during the home buying process in addition to a whole house and termite inspection. The EPA recommends having a radon mitigation system installed if the home radon level is 4 picocuries per liter, or pCi/L, or higher. Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases may be reduced. Radon reduction systems are effective, not costly, and can reduce radon levels in the home by up to 99%. Radon comes from the natural decay of uranium found in nearly all soils. It typically moves up through the ground to the air into the home through cracks in the foundation and water supply. The home traps radon where it can build up. Any home may have a radon problem; new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. It is estimated 1 out of every 15 homes in the U.S. have high radon levels. Test today! Low cost Radon test kits are available to Ohio residents: www.ohio.radon.com
