Homeowner Tips

This month we’re talking about Radon…  
Did you buy your house before Radon became a big issue in Portland? If so, be sure to test for Radon every so often. What is Radon? 
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that forms naturally from the radioactive decay of Uranium in rock, soil, and water. When radon gas is formed, it migrates through the soil to the air above, and can become concentrated at unhealthy levels inside buildings.Millions of homes in the United States have elevated radon levels. The first step to protect your family from radon is to have your home tested to find out if you’re being exposed to elevated levels. If elevated levels are found, there are mitigation systems that can be installed to minimize exposure to radon.
