You cannot see, smell or taste radon, but it still may be a problem in your home. Radon is a carcinogenic gas that is hazardous to inhale, therefore build-up of radon in homes is a detrimental health concern. When you breathe air containing radon, you increase your risk of getting lung cancer. Each year, about 12% of lung cancer cases and more than 20,000 Americans die of radon-related lung causes. Therefore, as a home inspector, it is integral that you are knowledgeable about the identification and remediation of radon gas in the home. This course will provide some basic information on radon for residential properties, including the definition of radon, an explanation of where it comes from, and a discussion of how it relates to the general home inspector. This course will also review how radon enters a structure and common mitigation methods. The overall course level is intermediate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Timothy F from This course is very full of knowledge of radon and related topics. I found out more here than any books that I read about radon. HE/SHE who wrote this course should be very proud of their effect. Radon for us H.I. is not often a request from home buyers as one would think. I am aware of it's long term effects and one that should have young kids that will live in the dwelling for some time are most effective without warning until symptoms of this occurring cancer causing agent. In that explanation, they will have a indoor test done. One other thing I'll add that is passed by are the effects of radon and our doctors never ask if you had a radon indoor test done / indoor air quality test to determine if you have a sick house. There's more to this but I'm not writing a course here.
