What Homebuyers Need To Know About Radon

Purchasing a new home can be stressful and exciting all at the same time. 

 

In addition to choosing your dream home that suits your budget and lifestyle, you have to be sure it's in good structural condition and harbors no hazards.

 

One of those hazards that many people don't know about is high levels of radon gas.

 

You can't see it, smell it, or taste it, but radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer right behind cigarette smoking.

 

However, having radon in your dream home doesn't have to be a deal-breaker. 

In the article below, we will discuss radon gas in-depth and what you need to know about it before you buy your new home.

How Dangerous Is Radon For Your Pets?

Most of us have heard the phrase, "If you have lungs, you can get lung cancer." 

 

Many of us also know the number one cause of lung cancer is cigarette smoke.

 

Fewer people know about radon, the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. 

 

Fortunately, we are seeing more and more efforts encouraging radon testing in homes and schools.

 

High radon levels have been detected throughout the country, putting millions of people in danger. 

 

What gets even less attention, though, is the effect of radon on animals. 

 

If you own a pet, then you want to do everything that you can to protect it from harm. Pets are members of the family, and our pets spend a great deal of time inside the home. 

 

This means that they are vulnerable to any dangers that lurk in your home as well, which certainly includes radon gas.

 

In the article below, we will take a look at the effect radon gas has on our pets, and more specifically, our cats and dogs.
