Radon Mitigation and HUD
The new regulations set in place by HUD highlighted in our article last month are a testament of what is our efforts and the efforts of others at shedding light on the dangers of radon gas. The recent regulations are now requiring that a radon test be conducted on every unit of every multi-family home that is financed through HUD. Additionally, any unit that shows high levels of radon gas will be required to have a Radon mitigation system installed.
We know that this regulation may come as a shocker to many, but if you look at the facts and statistics, it will make perfect sense. One out of every fifteen homes has high levels of radon gas. Additionally, radon gas kills over 20,000 people each year in the form of lung cancer, and is noted as the second leading cause of lung cancer. These two statistics alone are alarming numbers at how this gas has overtaken so many homes, and claimed so many lives in the United States.
We know that this regulation may be new to many. You may have never heard the words radon gas uttered in your life, but now is the time that it is effecting so many. We are here to relieve some of the stress and fill in some of the gaps of information that HUD did not provide as far as getting help.

Handling Radon Mitigation
The first thing you will need to do in reducing your radon gas levels is determine whether or not the gas is even effecting you. You will need to test each unit of multi-family homes in order to ensure that your levels are not high. The reason testing is required is because there is no other way to determine whether or not this gas is present. This gas is invisible, and odorless, meaning that testing will be the only way you can know for certain whether or not you are in danger. Once you have your test results, you can be on your way. If the results are low, you have the test results and no further action will be required. If the test results are high, you will need to call a professional to reduce your radon gas levels.
