Radon is a radioactive gas; it is colorless, odorless, tasteless, and chemically inert.
It is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer.
The EPA recommends that all houses be tested for radon during point of sale. The most common procedure for radon testing is for the potential buyer to request the radon test to be completed at the same time as the home inspection.
You can find additional information on radon, the protocols for radon testing during real estate transactions and guidance to interpret your radon results in the EPA publication Home Buyer’s and Seller’s Guide to Radon.
