When to Conduct Radon Testing?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all homeowners should test their homes for radon. Radon has been found in all 50 states and in all types of houses, so it’s impossible to predict which homes are safe without a test. 

The EPA recommends that you test your home when you prepare to sell. If you’re buying a house in Michigan, you should insist on radon testing as part of the home inspection before you commit to the sale. If the results show high levels of radon, its advised to consider radon abatement before you purchase the home. 

While every homeowner should test their home for radon, here are a few factors that may indicate higher risk: 


Some regions in Idaho are known to have higher radon rates than others. Check the EPA’s map to estimate your risk. This map does not guarantee that your house is risk-free from potentially elevated radon levels. We've tested homes next to each other and one house has elevated levels and the other is within normal range.

02.Foundation Type

Older homes with dirt floors in the basement have nothing to slow the rise of radon gas from the soil. Exposed crawl spaces also allow radon to rise into living areas unchecked.

03.Foundation Damage

Radon can seep through concrete, but foundation slabs and walls with cracks are prime areas where extra gas can seep in.

04.Other Construction Gaps

Any gap in the foundation can allow radon to enter the home. Common examples are gaps around pipes and wires, construction joints where walls and floors meet, and open sump pumps.

05.Well Water

Groundwater can also contain radon. If you rely on a well, it’s a good idea to test your water regularly for contaminants, including radon.

Protect Your Berrien County Home From Radon

Most radon exposure occurs inside homes, schools, and workplaces. Radon gas becomes trapped indoors after entering a building through basements, crawl spaces, or cracks in the foundation. Radon is a colorless and odorless gas, making it impossible to detect without the help of a professional.

Breathing in radon can increase your risk of lung cancer, and radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Professional radon testing is the only way to determine whether your health is at risk.
