Have You Tested Your Home for Radon?
If you’re buying a home in Massachusetts or live in a home that has never been tested, you should have a radon test done. While there are no requirements for radon testing in Massachusetts, the EPA recommends that all homes get tested for radon, regardless of where they are located in the state.
What is RADON?
Radon is a cancer causing, radioactive gas. You can’t see radon. And you can’t smell it or taste it. But it may be a problem in your home. Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe.
Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to EPA estimates, so it’s important to get the home tested to determine whether you need to take steps to reduce the levels of radon in the home. A radon test can be administered alone or in conjunction with your Cape Cod home inspection to detect and analyze the levels of radon in your home.
