When you purchase a new home, there are a lot of tests and inspections to consider. One of the myths about radon is that a neighbor’s clear test means you will also have a clear test, but it’s a good idea to get one of your own.
Traces in the Soil
The composition of your soil contributes to potential radon levels in your home. While the soil at your neighbor’s house is likely very similar, getting your own plot tested can confirm that you’re in the clear.
Differences in Construction
A radon test on your property can help keep you informed about areas of your home where radon may enter. Early detection of foundation cracks helps stabilize your home from the start.
Your neighbor’s home may be free of radon. Getting your own test can confirm that yours is clear, as well.
