It’s a common misconception that older homes or homes built out in the country are the only ones that can have high levels of radon. That’s not true, and it is just one of the many dangerous myths about radon.

Several factors contribute to the radon levels in a home, including soil and atmospheric conditions, the porousness of building materials and the structural soundness of a home. For peace of mind that your home’s air quality is safe, invest in a professional radon test. The process is quick and easy, but it can offer more insight than the mere “type” of your home. So, whether you live in a Victorian, ranch or newly built home, do yourself and your family a favor and invest in testing today.
