Our Review of
EPA's Home Buyer's and Seller's Guide to Radon
The very best time to plan for Radon mitigation is right away during construction. However, there are economical and effective Radon mitigation measures for pre-existing homes.
Welcome to our review of the EPA's guide to Radon. This is a series of pages, presented as a public service, to illuminate Lake Tahoe homeowners who may not know that the Lake Tahoe area is a high Radon area, and what the EPA says to do about the problem of high Radon gas that can build up in homes.
Of all Lake Tahoe areas, South Lake Tahoe has the highest Radon levels, according to the Radon Potential Zone Map for the Lake Tahoe Area, California By Ronald K. Churchill, Ph.D. Wow! Just click on that link and you will find that almost all of South Lake Tahoe has "Very High Potential For Indoor Radon Levels," according to the California Department of Public Health Radon Program.
Hopefully this information is enough to get all who view these pages to have their homes tested for Radon, and install the appropriate Radon mitigation devices in order to protect their health and their property values as well.
