Many new homeowners are so excited to purchase their new home that they often overlook essential steps that are necessary to secure their investment and make sure that it is a safe environment for them to raise their family. One step that should be taken is to hire Lifeline Home Inspections to perform a radon test. Radon is a radioactive gas that appears wherever there are large amounts of uranium in the soil or water. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. This gas gets trapped inside of your lungs when you inhale, damaging the tissue that your lungs consist of, resulting in permanent damage to your lungs. Safeguarding your home from Radon with the help of Lifeline Home Inspections should be at the top of your home buying, selling or spring cleaning checklist!
How Does Radon Enter a Home?
Radon does not have a smell and it is invisible; so physically seeing radon enter into your home is impossible. Radon can get into your home through any type of crack, crevice or hole that leads into your home. Radon can also get into your home through crawl spaces and can also infiltrate your water system. If radon is in your water, it can get into the air once it passes through a faucet in your home. There is no way to know when, how or even if radon will ever get into your home. Radon getting into your home does not depend on the location of your home either. The only way to know if radon is in your home is to have it tested by a professional. Lifeline Home Inspections specialize in radon testing and will thoroughly inspect your home for any signs of radon.
