Around 80% of the homes tested for radon gas by Delzer Home Inspections have results above the recommended level of radon by the EPA.
Do You Know The Level of Radon Gas In Your Home?
Radon gas is a cancer causing and radioactive gas from the breakdown of uranium in the earth that is odorless and undetectable without a radon test. Radon gas is lighter than air and works its way through the ground and can end up at your home’s foundation. After hitting your home’s foundation it will continue to seek atmosphere and can enter your home through cracks, gaps, and walls. The radon gas can then buildup to dangerous levels inside your home. With radon gas estimated to cause well over 20,000 deaths a year Delzer Home Inspections believes that no home should go untested.
Delzer Home Inspections Radon Testing Machines
Delzer Home Inspections uses RadStar continuous radon monitors. The machines are placed in the home for a minimum of 48 hours. The test results can be provided on site after the 48 hour period. There is no waiting for lab results that can hinder inspection objection deadlines. The machines provide an hour by hour sample as well as the average, minimum and maximum levels.
