Atlanta Property Inspections can test your home for mold, take samples when necessary, and make recommendations for mold removal or remediation.
The EPA recommends that all houses, regardless of what radon zone the house is located in, be tested for radon during point of sale.
Nearly one out of every 15 homes has a radon level the EPA considers to be elevated. Indoor exposure to radon is an important concern. In fact, Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S.
Radon is a radioactive gas. It is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert. Unless you test for it, there is no way of telling how much is present.
As part of your home inspection, Atlanta Property Inspections can test for radon, ensuring that you and your family will be safe in your new home.
How does Radon Enter the Home?
Most indoor radon comes into the building from the soil or rock beneath it. Radon and other gases rise through the soil and get trapped under the building and builds up pressure.
Openings which commonly allow easy flow of the gases in include the following:
- Cracks and gaps in floors and walls
- Openings around sump pumps and drains
- Cavities and joints in walls
- Gaps around utility penetrations (pipes & wires)
- Crawl Spaces that open directly into the building
