Radon is an odorless radioactive gas that has plagued a majority of American households. While Radon is harmless in its natural environment, the problem starts when it enters your home. Prolonged exposure to radon can cause respiratory issues, such as lung cancer, which can be fatal if not diagnosed early.
If you are buying a new home in Philadelphia, you will want to steer clear of properties with high radon levels. Not sure how to detect radon presence in an unfamiliar property? Contact Safe Pro Inspections for a thorough, accurate radon testing in Philadelphia. We use state-of-the-art radon testing kits that can measure the radon levels in any building in as little as 48 hours, so you can make your buying decision quickly.
Safe Pro Inspections provides radon testing in Philadelphia and its suburbs, using both active and passive radon detectors. Active radon detectors are electric-powered and are fast and accurate, whereas passive radon testing is affordable and takes more time to return results.
We will place as many radon detectors as required to not only detect the presence of radon but also measure radon levels accurately.
1 out of 15 American homes have elevated radon levels, which means your chances of ending up with a radon-affected home are considerably high. Radon levels up to 1.25 pCi/L are considered safe and may not require any mitigation measures. But if the levels are shooting beyond 4 pCi/L, it’s a red flag. You should either walk away or take proactive radon mitigation measures to ensure you and your family are safe.
Even if you come to learn about the elevated radon levels in your home after moving in, it’s not the end of the world. Instead of panic-selling your home, you can deploy radon mitigation systems to protect yourself and your family from serious health risks.
You can tackle the problem at both ends by installing proper ventilators and exhaust systems as well as sealing the ductwork to prevent radon from entering the breathing zone.
