RADON TESTING

Here at Quality Structural Inspections we strongly suggest RADON Testing for two important reasons; LUNG CANCER and money.


A Few Facts on Radon

* Radon is a gas formed by the breakdown of uranium and radium, both of which are found in high levels in Minnesota.

* Including New Construction, EVERY HOUSE IS SUSCEPTIBLE TO RADON!

* There are a great number of houses in Minnesota with high Radon levels.

*Radon is unpredictable. Two homes next to each other can have different levels (even if built at the same time).


LUNG CANCER

* Radon gas is the second leading cause of cancer in the United States!  

** Radon gas is the number one leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers!

* EPA, the American Lung Association, and the Minnesota Department of Health recommends Radon Testing!


Money

* After testing and results are HIGH, Radon Mitigation systems can run about $1500 and the buyer usually asks the seller to pay for this.

* You can still test for Radon after the purchase of your home, however, you will be the one paying if the results are high.

* GET THE TEST NOW SO IT IS NOT A MAJOR COST LATER!
