Radon is the # 1 cause of lung cancer amongst American non-smokers. Since Radon is a colorless and odorless radioactive gas, it is impossible for humans to detect it. According to the EPA, every home in the U.S. should be tested for potential dangerous levels of Radon even if neighboring homes show little or no signs of inherently dangerous levels.
Fortunately, True Perspective Home Consultants have the Radon testing tools to help you check your home's radon levels. Even if there are hazardous levels of Radon found in your home, True Perspective can help you discuss Radon solutions. All you have to do is call us.
