RADON INSPECTION: HOW TO FIND DANGERS BEFORE THEY CAUSE HARM
With radon testing, there are typically two routes to take: short-term testing and long-term. Short-term tests last a minimum of two days and up to 90 days. Because radon levels in an area can fluctuate by day and season, short-term tests are less accurate than long-term tests. However, if you have reason to believe you could be exposed to high levels of radon or simply want to establish a safe baseline, these tests are still a valuable tool.
Long-term last longer than 90 days and are more likely to yield accurate results with regard to average radon exposure. As such, the best choice is to use short-term tests to establish safe conditions in new buildings or properties, and long-term tests to get a better sense of average exposure over time. If you have any questions about radon testing services, please don’t hesitate to call.

A RADON HOME INSPECTION CAN PROTECT YOU AND TENANTS
Radon, which is released during the breakdown of uranium, is a naturally occurring gas that has radioactive properties and is extremely toxic. Additionally, it might surprise you to learn that radon can be found just about anywhere—in the soil, bedrock, and groundwater, sometimes even making its way into homes via direct ground contact. As such, radon isn’t typically found in mobile homes or in elevated structures, but homes with rock walls or dirt floors are especially susceptible.
While radon most often enters homes by leaching through rock walls, it can also enter the home through cracks in floors and walls, through gaps around joints, or through the water supply. As a radioactive element, radon emits radiation which creates a major health concern. As you breathe, the radon particles can get trapped in your lungs and cause tissue damage over time. Because radon is colorless and doesn’t have an odor, it can’t be detected without special equipment, making radon home inspection services a must.
If you own a home or manage a building with tenants, it’s essential to put the safety of its occupants first, and an important part of that includes regular radon testing. To learn more about radon testing or other radon services, contact Real Estate Inspections today.
