We’ve been in this business since 2013 and the number of requests for radon has gone up significantly. Some people call and immediately request radon, while others ask the question: “What is radon and why should I do it?”
Home safety is important. Radon is an inert gas, colorless and odorless, that has been known to cause lung cancer in certain concentrations. Outdoors, radon disperses quickly but indoors, it can become trapped inside your home causing a potential health hazard. In the Midwest, radon has a tendency to run on the high side. When your home is tested for radon gas and the level exceeds 4pCi/L you will need to have radon mitigation done. Radon mitigation is when a certified company installs a system to trap the gas and vent it to the outside of your home.
We’ve been partnering with Selgrade Construction & Radon since 2013; and we’re thankful for this partnership. Their team knows radon; and when they find higher levels at a home that need to be mitigated they offer Wiemann Home Inspection clients a discount. You can always learn more about radon from their website. And of course, if you’re not sure you should test for radon or not, for just $100 (our discount price when bundled with an inspection) you can have the peace of mind in knowing that the home you’re purchasing has safe radon levels.
