The first post in a continuing series of new information on regulations, repairs and general knowledge to help you keep your property in top condition and maximize its value.

Last week I attended a Radon Region 4 seminar. We received updates on the Surgeon General’s newest findings* and most up-to-date techniques in testing and treating. Our metro area has a relatively high potential for Radon gas, (see map http://www.homeinspectionsatlanta.com/radon-testing.html )and testing
for this health hazard is very important for homeowners, businesses and landlords.

My Radon testing equipment is absolutely current for EPA standards, and for a limited time I will offer $70 off my $195 normal price. There are do-it yourself kits out there that cost $70-$80. While they are not as accurate as a professional test, even that would be better than ignoring this serious health hazard.

*The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. today. The EPA has declared radon to be a “Class A Carcinogen,” which means that it has been shown to cause cancer in humans.
