The reason is because radon is the number 1 cause of lung cancer in non-smokers!
There is Radon (radiation) in every home, but no one knows the levels until the home is tested with the proper professional continuous monitors, placed in an approved location!
I am very passionate about this because in just the last 10 years I have come across
5 people that had stage 4 lung cancer and had been living in homes that tested at high radon levels!
21,000 people a year die from lung cancer caused by radon.
I also have talked to Realtors who have family members and or friends that have died from lung cancer!
I felt so sad for the people with lung cancer because they never knew about radon.
I have also known families that were never exposed to smoke and died from lung cancer. I have
always wondered if those people had high radon in their homes and did not know about it.
Realtors and their clients should know the health risks involved in breathing high levels of radon.
It is a disservice to our customers not to give the facts as we know them from the EPA. As a realtor, it is your responsibility to advocate for your client by staying educated about radon and the importance of radon testing. You may have home buyers asking you about the dangers of radon, acceptable radon levels, or even how to go about radon testing. On the other side of the transaction, if a seller has already received radon results, they may have questions about disclosing that information. Then let them make the choice to test or not! The cost to test with our Corentium Pro Continuous Monitors, is way less than the medical expecnses of going through lung cancer at any
