Every home or building has radon present in Winston-Salem, NC. You need to know your radon levels. Having a radon test performed by Southern Home Inspections is the best way to protect you and your family from dangerous levels of radon.
Radon gas is a common problem in all homes and structures. Radon is a radio-active gas that comes out of the soil and finds it’s way into homes all around the United States.
Once radon gas enters the home, it becomes trapped by construction techniques that keep our homes well sealed and energy efficient. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), radon gas is a class A carcinogen and is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in the United States.
The EPA recommends that every home be tested for radon. This includes every home and structure in Winston-Salem, NC and the surrounding areas. If you’re buying a home regardless if it’s a brand new home or 100 years old, you could be purchasing a home with high radon levels.
The EPA estimates that roughly 21,000 people die each year from radon alone! For a small amount of money you could have a radon test performed before you become another statistic. If your results come back with high levels of radon a mitigation system can be easily installed. A small price to pay considering the alternatives!
Please feel free to call us anytime to schedule your home radon test in Winston-Salem, NC.
