Fredericksburg Radon Mitigation Need
If you read the article posted by S.W.A.T. Environmental last month, then you are probably aware of the heavy need for radon mitigation in the Fredericksburg area. In case you are not aware, it is now mandated from HUD that all multi-family homes financed through HUD must have every unit tested for radon gas. Any unit returning high levels of gas will be required to have a Fredericksburg radon mitigation system installed.
The reason there has been a big push for testing and mitigation is the number of annual deaths from this gas. As the second leading cause of lung cancer, cigarettes are receiving more and more competition as being one of the most dangerous things for your lungs. Killing more people annually than drunk driving, now is the time we must take control of this gas and our health. Do not let this gas run amuck in your Fredericksburg home, you must take action.

You can handle this gas through having a test committed in your home. The reason a test must be done first is that this gas may or may not even be present in your home. Testing is so important because this gas is odorless and colorless, meaning the only way you can fully determine whether or not you are at risk is through having a test. Make certain that during testing periods you have the doors and windows of your home shut as much as possible in order to receive the most accurate results.
The two types of tests you can have area short term and a long term test. The short term test is preferred by many and it will provide testing results in less than ten days. The long term test will take a month or longer to complete, but it does boast slightly more accurate results. Regardless of which test you choose, you will have to be ready to take action for your Fredericksburg home.
Fredericksburg radon mitigation may be needed if your home has high levels of radon gas. If your levels are low, then no action may be required.
