Protect Your Family’s Health with Radon Testing
RadonLady, a service of ServiceUSA Home Inspections, has been helping protect homeowners and their families against the health risks of undetected radon in their homes since 2000.
What is radon?
Radon is a cancer-causing natural radioactive gas. You cannot see it. You cannot smell it. Yet, it poses real danger to your family's health. That’s why it’s important to have your home tested. Not knowing what the radon levels are in your home does nothing to safe guard you from the dangers of this cancer-causing agent.
Every home should be tested for radon…
Radon is present in all homes, new or old, with or without basements. The U.S. Surgeon General and the EPA recommend that all homes be tested for radon. Even homes that are equipped with a radon mitigation system need to be tested regularly for current radon levels.
ServiceUSA Home Inspections can reveal areas or conditions that you can address before marketing your home to help bring a higher selling price and a quicker sell. It literally pays to have a ServiceUSA Home Inspections home inspection before placing your property on the market.
...especially homes in Kentucky.
Kentucky is one of five states with a specific condition that directly affects elevated and sometimes widely varying levels of radon. So it is possible that radon levels will vary from area to area, neighborhood to neighborhood and even house to house.
Here are the facts
• Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers according to EPA estimates.
• Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in America and claims about 21,000 lives annually.
