Greenville, SC and Radon Testing
Radon testing may be foreign words to many southerners, but it should become a household phrase. Radon gas has been shown to kill over 20,000 people every year in the form of lung cancer. Many may assume that radon only affects northern states, or homes with basements, but this could not be further from the truth. Regions of South Carolina have shown high levels of vapor intrusion. As an odorless and colorless gas, the only way to determine if your home has been effected is through radon testing.
Radon testing is the modern day version of a canary in a coal mine. Unfortunately with the long term effects of this dangerous gas, the sooner you have a professional conduct radon testing, the better. Long term radon testing is the preferred method taking around ninety days to complete with the most accurate results given. For more immediate results, short term radon testing can be provided and only take a few days to complete.
Benefits of Radon Testing
As you may already know, the Greenville economy has been struggling to say the least. Homebuyers are few and far between, and have their pick at homes. Needless to say, if two homes are equal, except one has radon testing results with a safe level reporting on the results, we all know which home is going to be sold first. As a homebuyer, we require mold testing, termite testing, and other tests that could be detrimental to the safety of our home and family. Know that you know the dangers of radon, it is common sense to add radon testing the list of necessary precautions when buying a home in Greenville.
