Protect your home from radon with testing.
A colorless, odorless radioactive gas, radon is found naturally in soil and rock throughout the world. Radon can get into homes through the air, foundation cracks, and other openings. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. There are no short-term symptoms associated with radon exposure. Typically, problems manifest years down the road. Every house, no matter its age, should have a radon inspection.
If you are buying or selling a home, or considering a home renovation, plan to hire a professional company – Veteran’s Pride — to conduct a radon inspection.
Our radon inspection follows these steps:
- Set up radon testing equipment in spot determined by Inspecting Professional. You receive a report with findings after 48 hours of testing
If the inspection reveals a level of radon deemed too high for safety (anything at or above 4pCi/l), a radon mitigation system can be installed in your home,
Benefits of a professional radon inspection
A radon inspection provides peace of mind. Because radon has no smell or color, you won’t know about its presence in your home without testing. Prolonged exposure to radon can cause lung cancer. If high levels of radon are detected, mitigation measures like sub-slap depressurization can be installed.
Professional testing is easy. A Veteran’s Pride inspector will come to your home and set up the test. The test measures your home’s radon levels for 48 hours. When the inspector returns, they will collect the test and send it to a lab for analysis. You will get the results in a formal report. The entire process takes about two to four days.
The inspection with resulting mitigation can increase your home value. If your radon test comes back positive, you can remove the harmful gas from your home. By taking preventative measures, you can help increase your home’s salability and value.
