Some studies show that up to 1in every 5 homes have elevated levels of radon. The question is, does yours?
Radon is not isolated to areas of the country that construct their homes with basements. Elevated levels of radon are relevant issues here in Southwest Florida as well. Most homes will obviously have some level of Radon present, but our desire is to identify if the radon levels are elevated to a point in which some remediation is necessary to prevent any health risks. You may never know if elevated radon levels are present. You cannot see, smell, feel or taste this gas. Radon is the second highest cause of lung cancer here in the United States. Families with children maybe even more concerned as children are more sensitive to elevated levels of Radon.
There are studies published by the US EPA that disclose that 1 in every 5 homes have elevated measures of Radon present. That results in over 8 million homes with elevated measures of radon. Studies show that both Lee and Collier county have radon levels that are very close to the national average.
We have no desire to upsell the cost of your inspection, but we have every desire to offer you all the opportunities to limit every potential risk and protect both you and your home. Only you can decide whether the cost for this information is worth the peace of mind and protection that you will gain.
