Did you know that Middle Tennessee is a hot spot for Radon? Radon is a naturally occurring odorless gas found in many homes nationwide. However, just because radon is invisible and odorless does not mean it is safe. After smoking, radon gas is the number two leading cause of lung cancer.
Radon comes from uranium found in rocks and soil, and while radon levels are highest in winter, it is crucial to take radon seriously year-round. While radon is most often found in the outside air, in some cases, it can build up inside your home. Therefore, our goal for you as a homeowner or business is to have the lowest radon level possible.
Almost 1 out of 15 homes in the United States suffer from elevated radon levels. As home inspectors, we have seen radon invade homes in many ways. The most common way we’ve seen is radon moving through the ground into the air above. This causes radon to seep through the cracks and holes in your home’s foundation. As a result, your home acts as a trap for radon, which will cause the radon levels to rise.
Radon can get into your home through the following:
- Cracks in the floors
- Construction joints
- Cracks in the wall
- Gaps in the floor
- Gaps in service pipes
- Wall cavities
- Water supplies
Any home can suffer from radon exposure, whether an older house, new home, well-sealed home, or drafty home.
Premier Home Inspection utilizes specialized equipment to test for high radon levels within your home or business. If you have high radon levels, like many homes in the southeast, we can also provide references for radon mitigation. To book your radon testing appointment, please use our service request form.
