Hi John,

Here we don't have a radon problem. Even though there is radon present we are usually in the 2 pCi/L levels. There are some lenders that require a radon test here even though we are really low. Better safe than sorry.

Best, Clint McKie

Hi John,

 I have had this come up in Natural Hazard Reports several years ago and had to call the disclosure company to get the facts as it scared my buyer. Glad to see the levels in Philly are low as my children live there.

John - testing for radon is so important and kudos to you for bringing awareness to this often forgotten subject. Every home should be tested whether your selling or not - it for the health of you and your  family! Have a great weekend!
