Philadelphia Radon Mitigation and HUD

HUD Philadelphia Radon MitigationThe HUD regulations mentioned in the last month article from S.W.A.T. Environmental are in full affect. This means that now is the time that you must take action with possible Philadelphia radon mitigation in order to ensure that your home is safe and sound. If you did not know, HUD is now requiring that every multi-family home financed through HUD must have every unit tested for radon gas. If the home returns high levels of radon gas, it must have a radon mitigation system installed. This ensures that tenants are entitled to a radon free home, and helps reduce the number of annual deaths.

The reason this has become such a big concern for HUD and the rest of the United States is that over 20,000 people die each year from this gas. If we are to reduce this number, we will have to start somewhere. There is no better place to start reducing radon gas deaths than here and now. As the second leading cause of lung cancer, the health effects often take a while before they are apparent. If we are to reduce radon gas now, we will surely see large improvements in the health of many generations to come.

Handling Philadelphia Radon Mitigation

The first step in handling Philadelphia radon mitigation is to have a radon test. The long term test is a preferred method of many as it will generate slightly more accurate results. The short term test will take much less time, so if you are in a hurry it is definitely the test to choose. Both tests will provide sufficiently accurate results, and allow you to have a much better gauge on whether or not a Philadelphia radon mitigation system will be needed or not.

If your radon test results show high levels of radon gas, then further action will be necessary. You will need to contact a professional who can provide you with Philadelphia radon mitigation. If your gas levels are not very high, then no further action is required. It is important to point out that this testing and mitigation is applicable to each unit of every multi-family home, meaning that you may be in need of several Philadelphia radon mitigation systems.
