Did you ever get into a conversation regarding a radon test? Many people do not know what radon is, let alone. Well, in case you are one of those people, this article is going to tell you why doing a radon test in your home is a good idea and something that you should pay attention to.
First, let's talk about the health issues related to radon. Did you know radon is lung cancer’s second killer? Smoking is first, but if you smoke and live in elevated radon, you are even more likely to develop and even die from radon exposure.
Many folks actually find out what their radon level is when they buy or sell a home during a real estate transaction. Here in Wisconsin, radon testing can be written into the real estate offer.
It is impossible to know if your home is infected with high readings of radon in the air unless a test is set up and gas measured. Radon gas forms naturally in the ground and is a radioactive gas. It is odorless and cannot be seen. Radon even exists in the outdoor air we breathe. When radon gets into the air, it disperses rapidly and generally is not a health issue at lower levels.
The danger of radon is when it becomes trapped indoors, in high levels.
When radon measures in large quantities inside the home, it becomes a hazard to those living in the dwelling.
A radon test will alert the resident to take action if levels are unsafe. United States EPA is recommending that any home reaching radon level 4 pCi/L (picocurries per liter) or more needs to be fixed. Since there isn’t any safer amount of radon to feel content with, the EPA gives a recommendation that all American residents fix a home with these readings. Even radon levels between 2 pCi/L and 4 pCi/L could be mitigated if the consumer really wants to be solidly safe.
There are radon tests which can be purchased in hardware stores and placed in the home, but when a consumer places a test, he or she is not properly trained in radon measurement, so the accuracy of the radon test could be questionable. It is wise to hire a radon test pro to set up, retrieve and present the radon level calculated by using a professional radon monitor or a charcoal radon test kit.

Does Milwaukee Radon Mitigators Test homes with radon mitigation systems already installed? Yes, here's why-
Just because a radon mitigation system is already installed in the home, doesn't mean the home may not have elevated radon. EPA is recommending that all homes test for radon everry two years. In addition, some radon systems may not be functioning properly and the homeowner is not even aware of it.
How long does it take to radon test a home?
When our measurement technicion arrives at your home, he or she will place the monitor in a central location on the lowest level of the home, which is usually the basement. The radon monitor will remain in place for at least 46 hours until it is retrieved and test results are then provided
Do I need a follow-up radon test if levels are high?
As long as the professional setting up the radon test monitor was well trained and experienced, there should not be a reason why another radon test is necassary. If you suspect foul play, then certainly it would be wise to test the radon again.
