If you are planning on buying a home, don’t risk the safety of you and your family, and have it tested for radon, a cancer-causing gas. This is the best time, as you are negotiating the purchase. One in seven homes in the United States test positive for radon gas.
If you are building a home, or purchasing one that was just built, ask if radon-resistant construction features were used and if the home has been tested for radon. In home construction, simple and inexpensive techniques reduce radon levels on average by 50%. It is also cheaper to use these techniques during the construction than trying to fix the problem later.
So be sure to ask your builder or realtor up front about the threat of radon gas with the home you are considering. They should be aware of the importance of keeping your family safe.
