Did you know that radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)? Unfortunately, many Marathon County, Wisconsin homes have elevated radon levels in their homes. The best way to determine if your Wisconsin home has problematic levels of radon is with Inspect it Right Home Inspections' radon testing service.

What is Radon?

Radon is an odorless, colorless, and radioactive gas that can leak into your home. Radon is naturally-occurring and a common issue throughout the state of Wisconsin.

A Home Safety Threat

Radon gas is responsible for 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year. It is important to determine if your Wisconsin home has unhealthy radon levels to ensure high indoor air quality.

Accurate Radon Testing

Between five and ten percent of the homes in Wisconsin have radon levels above the US EPA guideline of 4 pCi/L (a measure of potency of radon in the air) for the year average on the main floor. Radon measurement should be made for a few days (two days, minimum) in the lowest lived-in level of your home, with the windows kept closed, as recommended in the United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) A Citizen's Guide to Radon.

A basement can be considered lived-in (for radon testing purposes) if it is occupied at least 7 hours per week. Otherwise, the main floor is the best place to test or do a follow-up test.*
*Note: The testing recommendations for real estate transactions or home sales can be somewhat different. Consult the EPA's Home Buyer's and Seller's Guide to Radon.

    Hi Mike,

    I just wanted to say Thank You for taking my call this evening regarding my question about permits.  We met with our Realtor tonight to go over the inspection and I needed some clarification.  Unfortunately, it turned into a pretty heated discussion with our Realtor but we go a lot accomplished with regards to what we are asking seller to cure in order for us to proceed with the sale.  I appreciate you educating us yesterday so much that I just wanted to let you know that I will be speaking VERY HIGHLY of you to anyone that I can!  It's great to know that there is someone out there like you keeping these sellers and agents honest because the layman such as myself has no clue how complex it really is to build and maintain a home correctly.

    Thanks again and I will keep you posted how things turn out.  If we do end up purchasing this home, we will at some point probably hire your services for the energy efficiency improvement items we spoke about.
