Radon gas is a dangerous substance that can lead to severe health problems, such as lung cancer down the road. The soil beneath your home releases radon that can find its way into your home. Radon testing can help make you aware of the presence of radon in your home so you can address the situation and keep you and your loved ones safe from the harmful gas.
Even though everyone is exposed to radon because it gets released from soil, a radon testing service is still important because it shows you how at risk your home is from holding on to this gas. From there, you can take steps to protect your home, such as opening windows to circulate air, sealing cracks in the wall, and other techniques to reduce radon exposure.
Many people like to turn to at-home radon testing kits to test for radon. However, these should be avoided, and you should hire a professional home inspector instead. These kits are not as effective as a professional and also take longer to get results back. Because of how dangerous radon is, it is important to get accurate results back as quickly as possible, which is best done through hiring a professional.
