The Importance of Radon Testing from a MN Licensed Radon Measurement Professional

The Minnesota Department of Health recommends that all Minnesotans test their homes for radon. A radon test is the only way to find out how much radon is in your current home or your potential home. That is why it is so important to hire a licensed radon measurement professional from AmeriSpec. Hiring a licensed radon measurement professional is especially recommended when an unbiased, third party is needed, such as in a real estate transaction. The result from a properly performed radon test will help you decide if you need to reduce your home’s radon level. Here at AmeriSpec we are the trusted name in inspection and radon testing for Minneapolis and the surrounding areas and can help get you the information you need to make an informed decision about radon mitigation and your potential home.

The Surgeon General, Environmental Protection Agency, the American Lung Association and the Minnesota Department of Health all recommend that your home have regular radon testing done to ensure your health and safety. Radon is found in all different types of homes. It doesn’t matter how new or old your home is. It doesn’t matter if your neighbor has recently tested their home for radon. It is an issue that can occur anywhere at any time. The only way to find out if it’s a problem is through radon testing. If you haven’t had your home tested in a while, you should definitely get it done. The sooner you find out radon is a problem, the sooner you can get it solved and possibly reduce your chance of getting lung cancer or other associated health issues.

In addition to having radon testing done when you purchase a home you should also have it performed after you make changes to the foundation, heating, cooling or ventilation. Consider testing before a major remodeling project to determine if radon mitigation should be added into the project. It is also important to retest after adding a radon mitigation system to make sure it is working properly.
