You can’t see it, smell it, or taste it, but breathing air containing Radon increases your risk of getting lung cancer. The EPA and Surgeon General of the United States Have warned that Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer. It is important for you to know the radon levels in your home. Ask the seller for their radon test results. If the home has a radon-reduction system, ask the seller for any information they have on the system, including when it was installed. Vital Home Inspections LLC, uses an electronic Radon detector made by Sun Nuclear that will log the hourly levels during the test and eliminate the need to send samples to a lab for analysis which speeds up the process so the real estate transaction is not delayed. Be sure and ask about Radon testing and radon-reduction systems when you book your appointment so we can give you the best service.
