For example, elevated radon levels in your home can lead to serious health issues, including lung cancer. Please keep reading to learn about how we helped a client reduce the risks associated with radon.

The Challenge: Small window to conduct radon testing
Our client convinced herself that she was purchasing her dream home. However, she was afraid that if radon were present in the foundation, it would be a big blow to her aspirations. Based on our experience in this area, we suggested that we conduct radon testing to determine if there were elevated levels. Our radon devices require at least forty-eight hours to complete the testing procedure. But, in today’s real estate market, agents are putting shorter due diligence periods to win the bid, eliminating the opportunity to conduct thorough testing.

The Solution: Quick thinking and immediate dispatch
We realized that we had to get into the home promptly to allow our radon devices ample time to gather relevant information. Consequently, we dispatched a radon technician within hours of being contacted by the client. Thankfully on this occasion, the radon levels were negligible, and we were able to submit our testing report to the client promptly. As the radon levels were low and not harmful, the client could proceed as she wished.

The Bottom Line
If it were determined that there were elevated radon levels in the house, it would not mean all doom and gloom for the client. A mitigation system can be installed in the home to remove the radon and release it back into the environment to eliminate the problem. As a result, if you feel you need radon testing as part of your home inspection, contact a professional immediately.
