Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for non-smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer for the general population. The EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency) estimates that radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year.
If you are a homeowner, a radon mitigation system can protect your health and increase the value of your property. This blog post will answer your question about radon mitigation services. How does it work? Does it add or decrease the value of one’s property?
How Does Radon Mitigation System Work?
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas formed from the decay of uranium in soil, rock, and water. The air pressure inside your home is typically lower than the pressure outside your foundation. The pressure creates a vacuum in your home, drawing radon in.
A radon mitigation system is a set of pipes that transport radon from the basement to the roof. It removes radon from the ground beneath your house’s foundation and vents it outside. As a result, neither you nor your family members get exposed to this radioactive gas.
Does a Radon Mitigation System Harm The Resale Value Of My Property?
Like any other installation or renovation project, a radon mitigation system adds value to your property. It can reassure potential buyers that your home is safe, well maintained, and move-in ready when adequately addressed.
Having an operational radon mitigation system in one’s home does not decrease the home’s resale value. Since detecting and controlling radon is so easy, it’s no reason not to buy the property (if all other factors line up for buying the house). In addition, the system has the added benefit of mold control regulating the airflow in the basement.
