Madison Radon Mitigation Needs
The recent regulation changes by HUD have made it mandatory for many homes in the Madison, WI area to have a radon mitigation system installed. We covered this topic last month, but in case you missed it, the new regulation requires all multi-family homes that are financed through HUD to have every unit tested for radon gas. Any unit that records high test levels will be required to have a Madison radon mitigation system installed.
This news comes as a shocker for many, but when you consider how many annual deaths are from radon gas it makes sense. 20,000 or more people perish annually from this gas. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, and is a serious health concern for so many. With approximately one out of every seven lung cancer cases being caused by radon gas, it makes complete sense that HUD has started to increase its regulation in regard to everyone’s safety in their home.
The Madison Radon Mitigation Process
With so many deaths caused by radon gas, and having it be a regulation to test your home, you are going to want to take all of the necessary precautions for Madison radon mitigation as needed. The first step you will need to do is have a test conducted to determine whether or not this gas is present in high quantities in your Madison, WI home. The reason testing is so important is that this gas is both odorless, and colorless, making testing one of the only for certain ways to know whether or not this gas is in your Madison, WI home.
There are two types of tests you can do. The first type of test is a short term test. A short term test may only take a few days to complete, or as much as a week. A long term test may take several months, but it does boast slightly more accurate results. Regardless of which test you choose to do, make for certain that the doors and windows are closed as much as possible during testing periods. This makes the readings more accurate for your Madison home.
