Stay safe with our expert active (versus passive) radon testing procedures.
Going through the process of looking for and ultimately deciding upon a house to buy can be very taxing. Once you find the one house that speaks to you in the Mooresville, North Carolina area, you might be wary of more tests and inspections. Do you really need to perform radon testing, after all? The answer is a resounding YES! Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas that is odorless, tasteless and can cause serious damage over time. The presence of radon doesn’t mean that you have to pass on the house altogether, but it does mean that you may want to take the necessary steps to ensure your safety from this harmful gas.
Here at Checkmark Home Inspections LLC, we want to help you with your radon testing. While there are passive tests out there that homeowners can perform, professional, active tests are better, more accurate, and deliver more reliable results. When it comes to safety, we want to ensure that you have the best results so that you know how to move forward. Here at CHI, we are insured and have been doing this type of active testing for many years now. We know what we are looking for and the safety parameters that are set by the WHO and the EPA.
If your radon testing shows that there is radon in your home, don’t fear! There are cost-effective radon mitigation systems that help to lower the concentration within your home to safe and normal levels by dissipating and venting the radon to a safe distance away from your home, where it will not be concentrated and harmful to the occupants.
