Sellers have your house tested for Radon
Radon test results are a positive selling point for those putting a house on the market.
Radon is a naturally-occurring colorless, odorless radioactive gas which comes from the natural decay of uranium that is found in nearly all soils. It can get into homes through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon can then be trapped inside the home, where it can build up. All homes with or without basements should be tested for radon. The best time to test homes for radon is during cold-weather months when windows are shut and elevated levels of radon are more likely to be detected.
The City of Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) encourages Chicagoans to test their home for harmful levels of radon which is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Affordable Do-It-Yourself radon test kits are available online and at home improvement and hardware stores. Information on how to test, find a qualified radon professional or obtain a test kit is available at http://www.epa.gov/radon or by calling the Cook County Radon Hot Line at (708) 865-6177.
