Alabama And Radon, Madison & Huntsville Alabama, Where To Go For Information

Radon is a naturally occurring gas resulting from the breakdown of Uranium in rock, soil and water.   Radon is radioactive and much like carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless and tasteless.  When out doors Radon Gas is relatively harmless, but when allowed to collect inside your home it can be very dangerous to your health.  So dangerous in fact that the Surgeon General lists it as the second highest leading cause of lung cancer with an estimated 21,000 deaths per year.

The good news is that Radon Gas can be re-mediated with specially designed, but simplistic and reasonably priced remediation systems.  And, when the Radon levels is found to be at or above 4.0 pCi/L, the seller is  responsible for remediation...at least here in Alabama.

Radon can be found all over the world and Alabama is no different.  Some markets do not require Radon testing or have Radon disclosures, but when buying a home here in Alabama I always bring up the topic and the issues of Radon and suggest testing always leaving it to my clients as a final decision.  A home inspector I like to work with, Steve Handback, HomeTeam Inspection Service also does my clients Radon testing.  He's certified and only uses the most accurately calibrated Radon testing machines available and I highly recommend him and I certainly recommend that you have your Alabama home tested.  Testing takes 48 hours and the cost varies, but should be around $150.  So if you are allowing me to represent you with the purchase of your new home, you can expect to have this conversation with me.

For more information about Radon, acceptable levels, testing or to view an information map of counties in Alabama regarding Radon levels follow this link to the Alabama Cooperative Extension System.
