Radon can gas your transaction...but it's an easy fix
In my part of the country we have a lot of rock formations close to the surface of the earth which creates a haven for Radon gas.
For those of you that may not have had any direct experience or heard much about it; Radon is a colorless, odorless, gas that occurs during the natural breakdown of uranium which is in most all of the United States.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US ranking just behind smoking as a killer.
Here's a link to the EPA website where you can learn more than you ever intended to know about Radon gas.
Again based on EPA data the safest level of Radon in a home that does not require mitigation is 4 Picocuries per Liter of air or less, commonly written as pCi/L. I have no idea how much a Picocurie is but I'm guessing it's not much.
In selling homes in some areas of the country Radon testing is more common than others. If you live in someplace like Florida or a western state that has porus, sandy soil you usually don't have much in the way of Radon concentrations but it's still there.
