Knoxville Radon Mitigation Needs

HUD Knoxville Radon MitigationIf you read our last monthly update, then you are probably aware of the new updates to HUD’s policies for multi-family properties. In an effort to improve the safety for tenants and renters, all multi-family home units must be tested for radon gas, if the property is financed through HUD. Additionally, any unit showing a high level of radon gas will need to have a mitigation system installed in order to properly reduce the levels back to normal for the Knoxville home.

If this sounds a little overboard to you, then you probably are not aware of the dire need for Knoxville radon mitigation. Roughly one out of every fifteen homes has high levels of radon gas. Beyond having a Knoxville radon mitigation system installed, we are seeing the long term effects happen every year. Over 20,000 people die each year from lung cancer related to radon gas. As the nation’s second leading cause of lung cancer, we need to take appropriate action in reducing the risk of cancer throughout Knoxville and the United States.

Knoxville Radon Mitigation Process

The first step in the Knoxville radon mitigation process is to have a test completed on your home. Testing is extremely important as there is no other way of knowing for certain whether or not this gas has entered into your home. Be sure to test every unit of all multi-family homes in order to stay compliant with HUD regulations.

The two types of tests you should be aware of are short term and long term. The long term test may take a month or so to complete, but has higher accuracy. The short term test may be completed in about a week and is considered accurate as well. Regardless of the test you choose for your Knoxville home, be sure to have the doors and windows shut as much as possible as to provide you with the most accurate reading.

If your Knoxville home shows high levels of radon gas, then you will know that Knoxville radon mitigation will be needed. The Knoxville radon mitigation is needed for two reasons. The first reason is to protect whoever is living in the house by having quality air pumped in and cancerous radon gas removed. The second reason being is to stay in compliance with the new HUD regulation.
