Radon is a colorless, odorless gas produced by the breakdown of a radioactive element called radium. Radon enters homes through small cracks or openings in a home’s foundation and gets trapped inside. The Environmental Protection Agency states that, “Exposure to radon accounts for about 21,000 deaths from lung cancer each year.”
HighTek Home Inspections offers its clients radon detection with or without a scheduled full home inspection. We utilize the SunRadon 1028 XP Continuous Radon Detection Model, which provides accurate measurements in a wide range of temperatures and humidity commonly present in basements.
