This week on Chadwick's REAL Tips, Shangela and I welcome Wes Miner, Home Inspector with Pillar to Post to discuss solutions how to remedy Radon Gas during home inspections.

Radon Gas is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is commonly found in Colorado basements.
The gas can be dangerous to those living in bedrooms in finished basements, especially children.
A Radon Gas reading takes 48 hours to collect data. If your home has a reading above 4.0 PCI/L, a mitigation device can be implemented, involving a pipe that extends below the basement and above the roofline. Sometimes, a fan is also installed into the attic that brings the gas up through the pipe.
Home Buyers: Normally a home seller should include the cost of a Radon mitigation test, so be sure to inquire.
Home Owners: If you’ve lived in your home for more than 10-15 years and spend time in your basement, consider getting a test for your own peace of mind.
