Radon is a naturally occurring gas that has been found in homes throughout the country. While you can’t see it, this gas can cause serious health problems, including lung cancer. For this reason, whether you are buying or selling your home, there are a few things you need to know about radon testing.
Radon Testing When Buying a Home
Before buying any home, you should consider having the radon testing process performed. While it’s a good idea to have the home tested before you move in, if this isn’t possible, you should have it tested as soon as possible after occupancy. Not only can having your home tested for radon protect yourself and your family members, but certain radon-reduction techniques can also make your new home more energy efficient.
Radon Testing When Selling a Home
If you are in the middle of selling your home, you may be worried it won’t sell if it has high levels of radon. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. In fact, advertising you had radon testing done and employed reduction techniques may actually appeal to buyers who would feel obligated to conduct testing following move-in.
