The big question is why test for Radon. According to the EPA, Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Every home in America has some level of Radon Gas. But the EPA estimates that one in 15 homes have elevated levels of Radon Gas. The levels of Radon Gas can widely vary from house to house, even in the same neighborhood. Since Radon Gas is odorless, tasteless and invisible, testing is the only way you will know what the levels are. There 58 deaths a day and over 20,000 deaths per year due to the effects of Radon in the United States.
The EPA recommends that every house be tested every two years, and after you have a Radon Mitigation System installed. They also recommended that any home buyer or seller, get the house tested before it is bought or sold. So if you are a seller or a home buyer, do your part - have the home tested for Radon as soon as you put it on the market or before you put an offer on the table.
