How much do you know about radon, a naturally occurring gas? Do you know if your house or property has more radon than others? Did you know there are easy to use tests for radon?

January is National Radon Action Month and a good time to learn more about radon.

Original content by Nina Hollander


Did you know that January is National Radon Action Month?  While the Charlotte metro area, in general, is not known for high radon levels, we do find homes from time to time with radon levels that are too high and that need remediation. Did you know that radon is called the "silent killer" because you can't see it, smell it, feel it, etc.? But after smoking it's one of the major causes of lung cancer and causes more than 21,000 deaths each year.


What is your Radon IQ? Take the quiz provided by HomeRadonTest.com.

If you need a referal to a top-notch inspector who can do a radon test for your home, contact us at Carolinas Realty Partners.

Also, why not check out this Radon Fact Sheet, these frequently asked questions about radon, as well as the EPA website that tells you everything you might ever want to know about radon?





And did you know that North Carolina and South Carolina are both offering state residents FREE radon test kits?  


Testing your home for radon is as simple as opening a package, placing a radon detector in a designated area, and after the prescribed number of days (2-7 days), sealing the detector back in the package and mailing it to a lab for evaluation. Radon is measured in picocuries per liter of air (pCi/L), a measurement of radioactivity. The U.S. EPA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that homes with radon levels at or above 4 pCi/L be repaired to reduce the amount of radon entering the indoor air.
