JANUARY: RADON ACTION MONTH IN THE UNITED STATES

Any home can have a radon problem – old or new homes, well-sealed or drafty homes, homes with or without basements. An estimated 1 in 6 homes in the U.S. is affected by radon. Prolonged exposure to unsafe levels of radon can increase the risk of lung cancer; in fact, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. There is real risk in not knowing if a home has a high level of radon.

WHAT IS RADON?

Radon is a naturally occurring, odorless radioactive gas formed by the ongoing decay of uranium in soil, rocks, sediments, and even well or ground water. While radon that escapes into the atmosphere is not harmful, dangerously high concentrations can build up indoors, exposing occupants to possible health risks.

HOW DOES RADON GET INTO A HOME?

Radon can migrate into the home in several ways. Openings or cracks in basement walls, foundations or floors are common avenues. Sumps, basement drains, and spaces between gas or water fittings can also allow radon into the structure. Other entry points can include gaps in suspended floors and cavities within walls.

HOW CAN I MAKE SURE MY CLIENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES AREN’T AT RISK?

Testing is the only way to measure radon levels. Your Pillar To Post Home Inspector will set up monitoring equipment and report on the results. If an elevated level of radon is detected, steps can be taken to reduce the concentration to or below acceptable levels inside virtually any home. Professional mitigation services can provide solutions for a home’s specific conditions.

Request radon testing when you book your next home inspection with Pillar To Post Home Inspectors.

Holiday & Winter Fire Safety Tips

Taking some practical precautions around the home can help keep your clients (and you!) safe during the holidays. Here are our top tips for the season:

  1. Use non-flammable decorations both indoors and outdoors.
  2. Check holiday lights for damaged wires and plugs. Enjoy indoor lights only while someone is at home and shut them off before turning in for the night.
  3. Keep live Christmas trees in a water-filled stand and check the water level daily. Dried-out trees are extremely dangerous and should be discarded immediately.
  4. Never allow children to access or use matches, lighters or candles.
  5. Keep space heaters away from bedding, curtains, paper—anything flammable. Never leave a space heater unattended while in use.
  6. Busy with holiday cooking and baking? Kitchen fires are the leading cause of house fires. Keep a multi-purpose fire extinguisher within easy reach and know how to use it.

All of us at Pillar To Post wish you and your clients a happy, healthy and safe holiday season!
