Grand Rapids Radon Mitigation Requirements

HUD Grand Rapids Radon MitigationLast month we covered the dangers of radon gas and all of the new processes required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to ensure that homes are safe for tenants. The main issue was that as a rental property, these properties often did not receive the same safety standards that we provide to our own homes. With the new regulations from HUD, we will be sure to see this.

Now that you know the dangers of this gas, and the new regulations in place, we are going to take you through the steps of Grand Rapids radon mitigation. The first step that must be completed before anything is that a test must be conducted. This gas is odorless and colorless, meaning that without the help of a test, it will be impossible to truly determine whether or not your home is being attacked.

There is a short term test and a long term test. The short term test can provide you with very fast results in as little as a few days. The long term test will provide you with the results in a longer period of time, but will boast more accurate results. Regardless of which test you choose, be sure to keep your doors and windows shut as much as possible to ensure the most accurate results. Once you receive your test results, you will have a much more clear idea of whether Grand Rapids radon mitigation is needed.

The reason that this gas is so dangerous is because it kills over 20,000 people each and every year. Radon gas is known as the silent killer. Without a proper test, there is no way of knowing whether or not you are going to be affected by this gas. While it makes sense to hire a mitigation company, somehow this often goes overlooked, and we do not take the appropriate action. As the second leading cause of lung cancer, it has now become a regulation from HUD, making radon gas a seriously big deal. Don’t’ go by without following the proper regulations. Have your home tested, and have a professional install a mitigation system as needed.
