What is Radon?

Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the world including the United States. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air we breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other gaps in the foundation.  Radon can also enter the home through well water if not properly aerated. Your home can trap radon.

Common entry points for radon gas into your home are often cracks in the foundation or concrete slab floors, and unsealed or missing covers from sump and sanitary pits. It is important that these deficiencies be explained, so even the not so obvious health concerns that can expose your family’s health are addressed. Ace in the Home Inspections Services’ main focus is the health and safety of your family.
That is why, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), IEMA (Illinois Emergency Management Agency) and the Surgeon General recommends that all homes below the third floor level should be tested for radon. It is important to know that this exposure is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques.
