Is Radon testing necessary if you have a mitigation system?


Radon is no joke at all and it can cause serious health issues to people as we are talking about a radioactive element. This is one of the reasons why so many homes in areas like Saratoga NY, Albany NY and Delmar NY are checked and inspected for radon every year. A good radon mitigation system is going to help you keep thing under control, but there are some situations that do require radon testing.

One common mistake is for people to think that radon is only going to be a problem for people who have homes with basements. It has been proven that homes without basements. The possibilities are much lower without a basement, but they are far from nonexistent, so keep this in mind.

When proper radon mitigation is installed, you should be able to have a radon-free property thanks to the mitigation fan in the system. With that said, the test is something that might still be needed just to make sure that things are fine and the levels are below the recommended threshold.

Radon testing every two years

Authorities in most states and cities are going to require this test to be done at least every two years. This is quite common in places like Troy NY. If you want to be sure, you need to find a good home inspector to help you determine the levels of radon in your property.

In conclusion

As we said before, radon is not to be taken lightly as it can be a serious health threat to anyone living in a property with high radon levels. This is definitely something that you need to keep in mind if you want to achieve the best possible results and keep everyone at home safe from radiation.
