What Is Radon?
Radon is an odorless, colorless gas that occurs naturally in the environment. It is toxic and generally undetectable so testing by a professional is required. Radon is the result of the breakdown of uranium in soil and rock. Aurora Home Inspections LLC is a certified home inspector and provides Radon Inspection for our Bergen County NJ and surrounding area homeowners. We test for Radon and inform you of the need for remediation. Knowing about the presence of Radon in NJ homes is important and we want to emphasize awareness to homeowners.
How Does Radon Enter The Home?
This odorless, colorless gas can enter your home through the ground, ground water and through building material. A crack in your house’s foundation can allow Radon to enter. It is imperative to test for Radon when inspecting a home. When you buy a house you need a full inspection, but Radon should also be tested for periodically while you live in a house.
