Radon Testing in Southeastern Wisconsin from a Certified Home Inspector
According to the EPA, the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers is radon gas. Including smokers, radon is still the second most common cause of lung cancer. Radon gas is naturally produced and as homes become increasingly energy efficient, radon gas is becoming trapped inside at levels that are unhealthy for us. If left undetected, and at levels of 4 pCi/L, radon gas will continue to accumulate, creating hazardous living conditions. Homes should be tested for radon levels once every two years to keep your family safe. Wall to Wall Home Inspections performs radon testing as an optional part of a home inspection or as a stand-alone service.
Wall to Wall uses state of the art electronic monitors which provide graphic readouts in 48 hours. The monitors take air samples every hour, and give an overall average of the radon levels in the home. Whether you are buying a home or currently own a house, you should get the residence tested for radon. If there are high levels of radon detected in a home, the problem can be solved by venting, or what is called mitigation. However, if left undetected, radon gas will continue to accumulate, creating hazardous living conditions. Don't wait until it's too late, get your home tested for radon today.
