radon inspections

Radon inspections are different from routine maintenance checks. A regular checkup can prevent health problems triggered by excessive Radon exposure.

Why is Radon testing necessary?

Radon gas occurs naturally in rocks and soil, but when it collects inside a home, perhaps through a cracked foundation, it may cause health disorders over time.

Why choose us for home inspections?

Since Radon gas is odorless and tasteless, We want you to watch out for the following signs that your home is taking on too much Radon:

  • Chronic coughing that seems to be getting worse
  • Shortness of breath
  • Tightness in the chest

Advantages of Radon Testing

Real estate transactions in Illinois don’t need to disclose radon levels. But if you test for it during an inspection, you have to disclose it to the buyer to follow state law. This disclosure could make a property more valuable to individual buyers.

  • Foundational damage
  • Signs of Moisture
