Do You Have Radon Gas Under Your House?

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is released during the natural decay of uranium, which is present in most rock, soil and water. It is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among nonsmokers and is also one of the disclosures required in California NHDs for all residential property transactions.

 

Do You Have Radon Gas Under Your HouseRadon can be found throughout California since uranium exists in rock and soil. Every home is within a radon zone- ranging from Zone 1 (High Potential) to Zone 3 (Low Potential). Zone 1 has the highest potential for an indoor radon screening greater than 4 pCi.L (pico curies per liter).

 

Zone levels vary throughout California and you can check your NHD for yours. If you are in a high or moderate radon potential zone, you should have your home tested for radon. You can do so for only $7.95 through the California Radon Program. The Radon Program is offering short term test kits for $7.95 to California residents. Contact Alpha Energy Laboratories at 1-800-324-5928.

 

If you live outside California, check on your state website for information on Radon Gas.

Hi Patty,

Glad you liked my article and it was educational to me also. Hopefully it is not under my house but I am going to pull out my NHD report and check shortly.

Hi Tom,

I am going to check too as I recall a house in my area that closed a few years ago that had radon gas and now here I am in the same city. I got all my reports on a disc and I did not read though everything. I am more careful with my clients than my own home....bad buyer's agent here to not have read it.
