I have observed programs and read articles about the subject of radon gas, for the purpose of understanding how this might have an impact on selling and buying homes. As a real estate agent of 16 years in the Niagara area, it is not a common topic of conversation, nor has it ever become an issue in my experience of selling homes in the area. However, as the public becomes more inquisitive and learn of different elements while searching for a home in any location, I thought I would provide you with a link to assist you in learning about radon gas.
To give you a brief definition, “ radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is produced by the breakdown of the uranium in soil, rocks and water” ( as per attached document titled “ A Homeowner’s Guide to Radon”) ….and is present in all houses. What a surprise! That’s what caught my attention when first learning about this gas. The attached article will guide you about what is acceptable and what is unhealthy radon levels in homes. It will explain how the radon enters a home and how it affects newer constructed homes. Did you know that Tarion warranty protects homeowners ? It will explain how homes are tested for radon and what to do if a home has high radon levels. It will also cover an overview of radon mitigation systems and potential costs that could be involved. The report will also supply you with a list of resources should you have any concerns. I hope you find this report helpful and informative.
