Radon - The Most Unusual of Suspects
It was a dark and eerily quiet night, except for the slight creak of the basement door knob as she watched it slowly turn… Sorry, no. Not here for a ghost story or a B-rated slasher flick. This tale is equally ominous, minus the masked man who keeps coming back, no matter how many times you shoot him.
The culprit? Radon Gas. Sounds stinky, right? Wrong! Radon is odorless, tasteless and invisible to the naked eye. It is by far one of the sneakiest of villains that creep into your home.
Now why should we even give a second thought to getting a home tested for Radon? Hardly anybody talks about it. Out of sight, out of mind. Yep, until somebody gets a bad case of LUNG CANCER. Per the EPA, Radon Gas is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer after cigarettes. At high levels, radon is extremely dangerous and carconogenic. Did things just get real?
Radon is natural and is released into your home by the decay of uranium. This nasty home invader seeps in through cracks in the foundation of the home, ground water, well water, the soil and the sump drainage - just to name a few. Fortunately, there is a piece of good news that accompanies this foreboding blog post. There is a way to test to see if there are harmful levels of Radon in the home and is recommended for all homeowners and homebuyers across the country.
