Milwaukee Radon Mitigation Needs

HUD Milwaukee Radon MitigationMilwaukee, WI residents need to be aware of the recent regulations of put in place by HUD. The recent regulations are that multi-family homes that are financed through HUD must be tested for radon gas. Every unit in the multi-family home must be tested in order to stay up with the recent regulations. Additionally, every unit with high levels of radon gas will need to have a Milwaukee radon mitigation system installed.

The first step in removing this gas from your home and staying up with the recent regulations is to have a test. A test is necessary as this gas can come from many sources, and wreck havoc. The only way of determining whether or not this gas is present is through testing. There are two types of testing methods that can be done. The first method is short term testing which can provide accurate results in a week or so. The other method is long term testing which can take slightly longer, but give you a little bit of a clearer picture of whether or not Milwaukee radon mitigation will be needed. Regardless of which test is done on your Milwaukee multi-family home, be sure to have the doors and windows closed through as much of the process as possible to give you the most accurate reading.

Radon Lung Cancer for Milwaukee Residents

Radon Lung CancerIf you have heard of radon gas before, then you may know of the serious health effects it may cause. Specifically, this gas is known for radon lung cancer. While we often are able to take control of our home safety through having a professional test, and install a mitigation system as needed. This is all great if you own a home in Milwaukee, WI, but many of us rent homes, or apartments, making a radon mitigation system hard to come by. It does not make a lot of sense to invest in a mitigation system if you are planning on moving the following year.

Even though radon lung cancer is a serious health concern in Milwaukee, we do not always take the proper precaution in avoiding this serious problem. Luckily, for many people who rent their home, there may be jurisdiction in place to help reduce the level of radon gas in many homes. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is now making it a requirement that all multi-family homes that are financed through HUD have a radon test.

The American Lung Association Applauds HUD for Radon Lung Cancer Reduction

This is a huge step forward in the process of removing radon gas from homes in the United States. Radon gas affects about one out of every fifteen homes, and this ratio may be much greater in certain areas of the United States. Milwaukee specifically needs to make sure that they test their homes, and it is a big step forward to make sure that all multi-family homes financed through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD, are safe. This gas is odorless, and colorless, meaning that radon testing is the only way to determine if you are being negatively impacted by this gas.

Testing for radon gas is only half of the battle. If your Milwaukee home has high levels, you must have an air purification system installed that will help reduce the levels of the gas. A properly installed air purification system can reduce the levels of radon gas by as much as 99%.
