Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States - only behind smoking.
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that can be found anywhere. As uranium breaks down in the soil under your house, the resulting gas gets into the air you breathe. This gas is colorless, odorless and tasteless, so you have no way of knowing if you're being exposed to unhealthy levels.
Watch out for these symptoms:
- Shortness of breath
- Persistent coughing
- Chest pain
- Loss of appetite
Home radon testing will make sure that the house you're planning to purchase is safe for your family.
If you're selling, a test showing low radon levels will make the process go more smoothly.
The EPA recommends you continue to schedule radon testing services once every three to five years. Thin Line Home Inspections will help you determine if the testing shows you're at risk and suggest remedies, if needed.
