Radon is an odorless, colorless and radioactive gas produced by natural uranium decay in the ground. According to various governmental and/or health-related agencies, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States after smoking. The only way to know your home's concentration is to perform a test.
WIN Home Inspection performs professional radon testing that meets U.S. EPA guidelines. The test results will indicate what, if any, action needs to be taken. Radon remediation (also called "radon mitigation") is usually a simple and relatively inexpensive process in most homes. If you are concerned about the radon concentration in your home or simply have radon-related questions, please contact WIN Home Inspection for more information. A test can be performed in conjunction with a home inspection or as a stand-alone service. For more information, please contact your local WIN inspector to see if this service is available in your area.
