Traverse City Radon Testing & Inspections
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second-leading cause of lung cancer in America, claiming about 20,000 lives annually.
Radon enter homes through small spaces and openings, such as cracks, floor drains, sump pump openings, floor joints in basements and even through well water. Some areas in the U.S. have a much higher concentration of radon than others. The EPA estimates that nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the U.S. has an elevated level of radon.

A simple and inexpensive radon test can be performed by Traverse City Home Inspections to determine if you have an elevated radon level in your home and if a relatively simple, but much needed, mitigation procedure is in order. Radon mitigation systems are becoming more common as people become more aware of the health risk caused by high levels of radon. These mitigation systems can usually be purchased and installed for approximately $1,000 to $2,000.
