Many of the professionals in the Real Estate market do not make Radon Testing a significant issue even when the Radon Tests show that about 1 in every 3 homes contains elevated Radon readings of 4.0 PCiU, which is deemed elevated by the EPA.

First and foremost, what is Radon?:

Radon is the chemical element that has the symbol Rn and atomic number 86. Radon is a colorless, odorless, naturally occurring, radioactive noble gas that is formed from the decay of radium. It is one of the heaviest substances that are gases under normal conditions and is considered to be a health hazard. The most stable isotope, 222Rn, has a half-life of 3.8 days and is used in radiotherapy. While having been less studied by chemists due to its radioactivity, there are a few known compounds of this generally un reactive element.

Radon is a significant contaminant that affects indoor air quality worldwide. Radon gas from natural sources can accumulate in buildings, especially in confined areas such as the basement and reportedly causes 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the United States alone. Radon is the second most frequent cause of lung cancer, after cigarette smoking, and radon-induced lung cancer is thought to be the 6th leading cause of cancer death overall.

When considering a Naples Radon Testing Company, first and foremost insure that they are not a licensed Radon Mitigation Company. When any type of testing whether it be a Naples Home Inspection, Naples Mold Inspection, Naples Termite Inspection through CS, or a Naples Radon Test insure there is no financial gain on the findings of these tests.

Complete Unbiased evaluations are needed to insure that there is no hidden agenda behind the findings.
