Get a Natural Hazard Disclosure Report from GeoAssurance to see statistics on Radon in your zip code!

Radon is a serious issue in many areas of California according to the Department of Health Services (DHS) statistics. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it's the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States! And yet, it's easy to mitigate by sealing around pipes and cracks in floors and venting crawl spaces.

The DHS defines Radon as a colorless, odorless, and tasteless radioactive gas produced by the decay of trace amounts of uranium occurring naturally in soils. The EPA recommends that all homes be tested for Radon.

Many communities, including Santa Barbara and Palos Verdes, have high percentages of positive tests for Radon. If the house next door to you has high Radon, your home may or may not be affected. Testing is the only way to know for sure.

GeoAssurance is the first natural hazard disclosure company to disclose the number of Radon tests that have been done in each zip code, and how many of the tests showed "positive" for Radon, and GeoAssurance uses different Radon maps than other NHD providers.

As leaders in the NHD industry, GeoAssurance is guided by their mission of providing precise information for informed decisions. They produce Natural Hazard, Tax and Environmental Reports for Real Estate Professionals, at the best turn-around time and best price possible.

Regina - How many Radon Gas tests do the NHD Reports say have been done in the Carlsbad area? Do you know if our area is a high area and the cause of lung cancer here?

Steve & Carol, I know there is a high rate of cancers but wonder if it's from the water treatment plant, the San Diego pollution layer, the freeway smog, or ???
