We are world Class Home inspectors
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the world, second only to steelworkers that deal with metal castings and welding smoke. This can be prevented with proper ventilation. However, because Radon is carcinogenic, it is very important to know what levels you are being exposed to over long periods of time.
There are risks associated with prolonged exposure, but many states don’t have any regulations regarding radon testing. Idaho is among these states without specific Radon laws.
If your home inspector can test for Radon, it would be my recommendation that you have them do it. If there are high readings during this test, there is a cure; it’s called Mitigation.
Mitigation is a small fee to pay when you consider the cost of a replacement window installed by a professional company. So the cost is cheap and effective and will provide you a better quality of life for you and your family.
