Note: Children are much more susceptible
to damage from radon exposure.
Lung, kidney, brain, heart and other tissue damage is common and irreversible.
As the father of 8 I strongly urge you to have any potential property tested.

What is Radon & Why is it a concern?
Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of naturally occurring uranium in soil and rock. It is invisible, odorless and tasteless, and can only be detected by specialized tests. Radon enters homes through openings that are in contact with the ground, such as cracks in the foundation, small openings around pipes, and sump pits.
Radon, like other radioactive materials, undergoes radioactive decay that forms decay products. Radon and its decay products release radioactive energy that can damage lung tissue in a way that causes the beginning of lung cancer.
The more radon you are exposed to, and the longer the exposure, the greater the risk of eventually developing lung cancer. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, resulting in 15,000 to 22,000 deaths per year.
Testing your home for radon is easy and homes with high levels of radon can be fixed (mitigated). The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recommends that all homes be tested for radon.
I cant thank you enough ! You put my father in law at ease ( and of course he knows everything) , gave the kids something to do, made my wife laugh and saved me $22,000 on my purchase price of 1.8 mill.
You even ordered pizza after the inspection so the kids could play on the beach and then told us where the two best ice cream joints on the shore are.
total slam dunk !
stop by anytime you are in the area, Ethan and the gang.
