Radon Testing in West Kootenay Home Inspection Services

Radon is a naturally occurring colorless, odorless, toxic, radioactive gas, has become a growing concern for homeowners in the West Kootenay region. Radon is second only to cigarette smoking as a cause of lung cancer, and in smokers exposed to radon it exponentially compounds the risk. 

Knowing the risk to your family is simple and easy,  having it permanently removed is not only possible but affordable when compared to other home maintenance systems. Ignoring it leaves everyone at risk. Prioritizing radon testing is essential for maintaining a safe living environment. Radon is a naturally occurring gas that can seep into homes through the ground, accumulating to potentially dangerous levels. Nelson radon levels, for instance, have been found to be at cancer causing levels in 25% of the homes, underscoring the importance of localized testing to identify potential risks.
