What's so Bad about Radon?

Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer, behind smoking. Radon is invisible, odorless, and tasteless — making it impossible to detect without specialized equipment. Approximately 18,000 lung cancer deaths related to radon occur in the United States every year, and it's estimated that 1 in 15 homes has radon levels above the thresholds recommended by the EPA.

What Exactly Is Radon?

Radon is a chemical element (Rn) and a member of the noble gases. It is radioactive, and so can cause damage to the DNA of a living cell. Radon is naturally produced from the radioactive breakdown of uranium, thorium, and radium.

While radon is present around the world, it can be especially troublesome in certain regions where there are high concentrations of uranium in the ground, such as specific areas in New England and northern regions of the United States.

What Can You Do about Radon?

The first step to protect yourself and your family is to check the concentration of radon in the home. We provide radon tests using specialized equipment to give you an accurate measurement of radon concentration levels. If the radon measurement is greater than 4 picocuries per liter, then it is recommended that you install a radon mitigation system. The most common radon mitigation systems use a fan to pull in radon from beneath the house, and vent it outdoors where it is quickly diluted to safe levels.

TESTIMONIALS

  • " Roger was SOOO amazing! We are first time homebuyers so you can understand the stress of this entire process; but I can genuinely say that the inspection part was the easiest of it all. Everything went seamlessly, Roger came on very short notice and took care of the whole thing while we were out of town. Then he provided us with a very comprehensive report with pictures which made it so so easy for us. I highly HIGHLY recommend little creek home inspections! "

  • " Roger has made purchasing our new home incredibly easier. Not only did he identify ever major issue that needed to be repaired he showed me everything that he was talking about and took pictures with detailed explanations for our seller to understand what repairs need to be made. Without his willingness to inspect every inch of our potential home in the rain we would have purchased this home not knowing all of the major fixes needed. He spent 6 hours making sure that there were literally no stone left untouched. Grateful to have Little Creek on our team to help protect my future investment and make sure my family lives in a safe and fully functioning home.

    You need them to inspect your next home. "
