HAVE YOU TESTED YOUR HOME FOR RADON?
According to the EPA, Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, behind smoking. Therefore, the EPA recommends homeowners test their home for radon every two years. Additionally, it is recommended to test if you remodel, or changes-in-use occur. For example, if you add additional insulation, new windows, or you begin occupying the basement, you should retest your home on that level.
Tiger offers both short-term (2-7 days tests) as well as long-term 90-day passive testing for a broader sample of real-life conditions.
Corrective action or mitigation is recommended by the EPA for test results of 4 pCi/L and greater. Studies indicate that as many as one in five homes in the Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts may have elevated radon levels.
