Radon is an odorless, colorless gas that occurs naturally in the environment. It is toxic and testing for it by a professional is required as it is undetectable. Radon is the result of the breakdown of uranium in soil and rock. Aurora Home Inspections is a certified Radon Inspector and Tester in NJ. We provide comprehensive Radon inspections to Bergen County NJ and surrounding area homeowners. You should be aware that Radon can be a health risk in NJ.
How Does Radon Get Into A Home?
Radon can enter your home through the ground, ground water and through building material. A crack in the foundation of your house can allow Radon to enter. The EPA suggests that all homes sold in the U.S. be tested for Radon. When purchasing a house you need a full inspection, but testing for Radon should be scheduled periodically while living in a house.
How Is Radon A Health Risk?
Radon can be responsible for respiratory conditions and even lung cancer. Aurora Home Inspections performs thorough inspections of homes in NJ and testing for Radon is one element of those inspections. We inspect and test for the presence of Radon and we recommend remediation. We do not do the remediation work, we only inspect and test and report on the result of those tests.
