radon guide for idaho homeowners

When buying a home, many underestimate the potential risk of radon indoors. Check out this radon guide for Idaho homeowners.

Radon is a radioactive gas that is created from uranium that decays in the soil. The gas rises and gets trapped indoors, and when high levels are inhaled over a prolonged period of time, it can cause lung cancer. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. and causes roughly 21,000 deaths per year.

Radon in Idaho

Two in five Idaho homes test high/dangerous for radon, and your home could be one of them. No matter the age or size of the home, radon poses a risk if it’s present at high levels. 

Radon safety precautions

If you’re buying a new home, you should have it tested for radon before you sign on the dotted line. Buyers can request a free radon test here or realtors can request a test during the due diligence process. If the home tests high for radon, you don’t have to back out, but you should install an active radon mitigation system to remove the radon from the home.

If you are building a new home, we can also install a passive system during construction to protect your home from day one. Radon guide for Idaho homeowners.
