Detect Radon Gas in Your Home or Basement
Tri County Home Inspection strongly recommends every home located in Southeastern Wisconsin be tested for radon prior to closing the sale. Radon is a tasteless, odorless and colorless gas that is hazardous to your health. Radon is also an easy problem to solve, provided it’s known.
As many as 40% of homes in Waukesha, Jefferson and Walworth counties may have radon above action level: 4 picocuries per liter of air.
We feel horrible when we test a home and it comes back with high levels of radon, unbeknownst to the current owners. If they just had a simple and affordable radon test performed before they purchased the home, the issue could have been corrected. Unfortunately, we see this every week here during Southeastern Wisconsin home inspections.
