Radon Testing : It is not a Real Estate Issue, It’s a Health Issue

Whether your home is in the city, a suburban town, or a rural community we always recommend it be tested for radon. In fact, according to The World Health Organization, The U.S. Surgeon General, The Environmental Protection Agency and State Health Departments all homes should be evaluated, no matter where you live.

Radon exposure is the second-leading cause of death from lung cancer in the United States. Radon is invisible and completely undetectable without special equipment. Central Real Estate Inspections performs radon testing using the most up to date continuous monitors; which are sophisticated, electronic instruments that collect data hourly and are equipped with tamper detectors. We then provide you with the results and recommend mitigation measures you can take to keep you and your family safe.

We are One of the few local resources that are Nationally Certified in Radon testing.

How Radon Enters A House

No one wants radon to enter their home, but it happens. Knowing how radon can seep into your home can help you prevent it from getting too bad. 

The three main ways that radon enters a home are through water, soil, or building supplies. When radon gas is in the soil, it can seep into your home through cracks when doors and windows are open and if you track dirt into your house. 

Radon can enter your water supply and infest your home if you have a well on your property. Lastly, some home materials have radon, such as granite countertops. 

As always, it’s essential to test for radon regularly and use radon mitigation because while smaller levels are not detrimental, it can be a considerable health risk at higher levels. Rochester radon testing is one of our specialties; we’re here to help.
