Madison, Wisconsin and Radon Testing

Radon Testing Madison WisconsinAs a resident of beautiful Madison, WI, you may have heard about the dangers of radon gas. Did you know that radon is odorless, and colorless, meaning that there is no way to determine whether or not it is in your home without radon testing? Did you know that each year over 20,000 lives are lost due to radon as it has been shown to cause lung cancer? Did you know the EPA considers radon as a major health threat and concern?

Radon testing is the only way to determine whether or not your Madison home has radon. Once you have your test results, you may or may not have to install a mitigation system, but is your health something you really want to gamble on? Whenever you buy or sell a home, it is necessary to have termite inspections, mold inspections, and other inspections throughout to establish that the Madison house is in good health to sell. What is becoming ever popular, and for good reason, is radon testing homes before a sale. Showing a home is radon free with radon testing results is a great way to increase home values, and sell your home faster. Personally, I would not purchase a home without radon testing results within two years of the purchase.

Radon Testing Specialists in Madison

Radon testing is mandatory for your Madison home if you wish to avoid lung cancer. Similar to smoking, you would not develop lung cancer immediately, but after years of inhalation, the damage has been done and cannot be reversed. While many cancers are unavoidable, If you speak with any cancer patient who had the capability to avoid their cancer by not smoking, or radon testing, they will explain how much they regret their decision.

While we cannot see what the future holds, hindsight is always 20/20. Do not be kicking yourself for not hiring a radon testing specialist. Radon testing specialists will be able to determine when the best time for your test, what type of test is needed, and can properly conduct the test. Hiring a general contractor is not something you want to risk your health on. A radon testing expert should have the proper certifications and experience to answer and handle any issue that may arise while radon testing is conducted.
