Home inspections are a visual non-invasive inspection of the many different systems that may need to be repaired or replaced. This helps to reduce the amount of problems you may discover after you move in. The home inspection should be both informative as well as educational.
Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. You can’t see, smell or taste radon but it may be a problem in your home. 2 out of every 3 homes in the Fargo/Moorhead area have average radon levels of greater than 4.0 pCi/L which is above the guidelines set by the EPA. Have your home tested by a qualified professional from DJ's Home Inspection, Inc.
All homes with high radon levels can have the radon levels greatly reduced by the installation of a radon mitigation system to draw out the soil gases and prevent them from entering your home. If your home has high radon levels please contact us for further information on having a radon mitigation system installed in your home.
Radon is a colorless and odorless gas that comes from the soil. The gas can accumulate in the air we breathe. Radon gas decays into fine particles that are radioactive. When inhaled these fine particles can damage the lungs. Exposure to radon over a long period of time can lead to lung cancer.
It is estimated that 21,000 people die each year in the United States from lung cancer due to radon exposure. A radon test is the only way to know how much radon is in your home. Radon can be reduced with a mitigation system.
Radon is produced from the natural decay of uranium and radium, found in rocks and soil. Uranium breaks down to radium, and radium eventually decays into the gas radon. Radon gas is in the soil and common throughout Minnesota. Because soil is porous, radon moves up from the soil and into the home. It can then accumulate in the air and become a health concern.
Radon is a serious public health concern in Minnesota. The average radon level in Minnesota is more than three times higher than the U.S. radon level. This is due to our geology and how our homes are operated. Minnesota homes are closed up or heated most of the year, which can result in higher levels of radon. In Minnesota, more than two in five homes have radon levels that pose a significant health risk.
Any radon level poses some health risk. While it is not possible to reduce radon to zero, the best approach is to lower the radon level as much as possible. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set the action level at 4 pCi/L (picocuries of radon per liter of air). It is highly recommended at 4 pCi/L or higher a radon mitigation system is installed to reduce the radon level.
