Buying a home can be a bit like falling in love. You shop around, seek advice from friends/family, and when you find the perfect match, lay it all on the line and pop the question. But even after the seller has said yes to your offer, you will likely need a home inspection, which often includes a radon test.
Any home can have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. Elevated levels of radon gas have been found in homes in the Lake, Geauga, and Cuyahoga counties of Ohio and in homes all over the United States.
Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. It is a radioactive gas that is colorless, odorless, tasteless. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and typically moves up from the ground or well water into your home which traps radon in the air you breathe. The U.S. Surgeon General recommends that ALL HOMES be tested for radon. The only way to determine if your home is under the EPA action level of 4pCi/L is to test!
