Why Radon Testing is needed in Your Milwaukee Home
Milwaukee, WI is often known for its beer manufacturing, but something else it is getting more recognition for is radon gas. Radon gas is a naturally occurring element, but has been proven to cause lung cancer, and claim the lives of over 20,000 per year in the united states alone. Radon may enter your home in a variety of ways, seeping up through the soil into your water supply, through your foundation, through your basement, or a variety of other ways.
Colorless, and odorless, there is no detecting it without radon testing. Radon testing is the only way determine whether or not your Milwaukee home has safe gas levels. Many general contractors may offer you radon testing, but it is important to choose a specialist that has the experience and knowledge to design the best testing program for you. Ninety day testing programs are considered long term, and generally speaking are much more accurate than short term testing. If you desire an immediate estimate of your radon levels, short term radon testing should be able to suffice.
