Avoidance Of The 4 Most Common Home Health Hazards



Radon is an odorless, colorless gas that exists in the earth. Testing is essential to determine its presence, and this testing is usually undertaken as part of a real estate transaction. It has to be dealt with by installing a system that draws it out of a location.

Carbon Monoxide presence can be determined with a detection system. Carbon Monoxide detectors are highly recommended and should be installed on each floor of a house.

Lead Paint generally exists in older homes and probably won’t be found in newer construction. Houses built prior to 1978 should be tested for lead. Professional removal is usually recommended.

Mold lives in damp conditions, and even after remediation it can return. Mold can hide in walls, under floors, in the air and in fabrics. Testing for mold presence should be left to a reliable professional tester to locate its hiding places.



Testing is Necessary to Determine the Presence of Health Hazards
