Protect Your Family from Radon
Almost all homeowners contract for annual termite inspections as a condition for homeowner insurance renewal. Termites are a direct threat to the wellbeing of your home’s infrastructure. What if you learned that there is another threat out there than can do much greater harm that terminates. This threat is silent yet deadly. That threat is radon.
Homeowners are wise to add annual radon testing services as a health protection measure for you, your family, and all who visit you. There are many effects of radon exposure therefore it becomes even more important to test a home for harmful radon gas. EPA recommends that all homes be tested for radon levels. Determining which properties will require additional examinations that are worth your investment and requesting appropriate services with the licensed inspectors will save time and money.
It will be helpful if you will be proactive and test your home. With the cold months, radon is expected to increase in homes. Radon is a number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to EPA estimates. Overall, it placed as the second leading lung cancer deaths of which others occur among people who have never smoked. The fastest way to get rid of radon is using a vent pipe system and fan which pulls radon from beneath the house and vents it to the outside. This method is called the soil depressurization system which will not require major changes to your home. Another most reliable radon reduction method is the sub slab depressurization. One or more suction pipes are inserted through the floor slab into the crushed rock or soil underneath. And if there are sealing cracks and other openings in the foundation, radon reduction techniques will be made which is a basic part of most approaches.
Many people will never know if they are exposed to radon because there are no immediate signs or symptoms from breathing in background radon. It is claimed that it takes several years or even decades for any radon symptoms to surface. Testing your home for radon level will save people from potentially getting cancer and keeping closings on track will greatly help to avoid breathing radon in air that comes through cracks and gaps in buildings and homes.
