Kalamazoo Radon Mitigation Concerns

HUD Kalamazoo Radon MitigationThe current regulations in place for Kalamazoo, MI set aside by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development are about to make it a little tougher for you to keep your multi-family home financed through HUD. While the new regulations may sound a little difficult, you can be assured that with S.W.A.T. Environmental, it may be easier than you think.

In case you did not read our most recent article, HUD has made it a new requirement that all multi-family homes must have a radon test. This new requirement is that all units in the multi-family home are tested. This is important as one unit may have high levels of radon gas, while other units may have lower levels of radon gas. If a unit returns high levels of radon gas, they will now be required to have a Kalamazoo radon mitigation system installed.

The Importance of Kalamazoo Radon Mitigation

This radon gas is known to kill 20,000 people or more each year. In other words, more people die from this gas than drunk driving, or many other causes of death. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, and is now responsible for approximately one out of seven of all lung cancer cases. Radon is known as the silent killer of Kalamazoo, as like many lung ailments, the effects occur over time to cause serious health risks and concerns.

The first step to the Kalamazoo radon mitigation process is having your home tested. Testing is important as this gas cannot be seen or smelled. Without a proper test, you will not be able to determine whether or not your home is infested with radon gas. There is a short term and a long term test. While the long term test boasts slightly more accurate results, the short term test may provide results within only a few days. Be sure to keep your doors closed as much as possible while having the test conducted in order to have the most accurate results.

The Kalamazoo radon mitigation system that you need in order to get rid of the radon gas that is in your home is easier to obtain than you may think. S.W.A.T.
