Either you are buying a new house or have been living in an old one, home inspections are important as there are many factors that are hidden from our naked eyes but are affecting the health of us and our family badly. As we all know that health and house maintenance cost a lot. So why wait for the time till when the problem is out of our hand and we cannot do anything about the problems present in our house that will result in us losing our fortune to the issues that could have been prevented.
One of the many problems related to the ecosystem of our house is the presence of radon gas. Radon Gas is present in the air around us and it enters our house through many ways so it is inevitable to avoid it’s existence. Why is this gas so harmful? It is a colorless and odorless gas but is highly dangerous because it has proven to be the cause of lung cancer in non smokers due to prolonged exposure. A study revealed that around 21000 Americans died due to lung cancer and being non-smokers, the cause of this lung cancer was deduced to be radon exposure. Experts say that a minimal amount of radon is present in the air we breath but if inhaled for a prolonged period, it can cause issues. There is no other way that you can be sure about it’s presence or absence in the house as it can enter your house in many ways.
