Knowing whether or not radon exists should be a requirement of a healthy home! Villa Home Inspections tests for radon in Weehawken and the surrounding Hudson & Bergen County NJ area towns to be certain the property offers safe air to breathe.
Radon is a common gas found in NJ homes and it can be associated with lung cancer. The more radon or the longer a person is exposed to radon, the greater risk of developing lung cancer. It is believed to be the second leading cause (behind cigarettes) of lung cancer in the United States, resulting in 15,000 to 22,000 deaths per year.
Radon is also invisible, odorless, and can only be detected by a specialized test. You will not know radon is present without testing for it. This radioactive gas is formed from a breakdown of uranium in soil and rock. It enters a structure via its close proximity to the ground. Cracks in a foundation, wall penetrations below grade, and sump pits are common examples of how radon might enter a home.
