Indiana is in a HIGH RADON ZONE. As many as 50% of the homes in Northern Indiana
test over the EPA’s action limit for radon while the national average is only 7%.
Breathing high levels of radon gas is the same as smoking and can cause lung cancer.
You only know what your radon levels are if you test. Testing is inexpensive and best to
do during the real estate transaction because often the remedy can be negotiated as
part of the closing.
If you are sensitive to asthma and allergies you may want to consider testing the air for
mold spores. Air testing can tell us if there is an elevated level of invisible spores floating
around which can irritate those who suffer from asthma and/or allergies. You also
would run an air test if there is a musty smell in the house. The other kind of testing is
surface testing which is a yes or no test for active mold growth. Surface testing is usually
done when you want to confirm what you see visually is indeed mold.
(WELL WATER) Well water should be tested every year. More than 19 million
Americans get sick every year from contaminated water. Bacteria testing is not enough.
Most contaminants are easily fixed but you won’t know unless you test. Common
drinking water contaminants include bacteria, nitrates, arsenic and lead. The real estate
transaction is great time to test because often the remedy can be negotiated as part of
the closing. A simple reverse osmosis system at the kitchen sink will do.
Just because the house is on city water doesn’t mean it’s safe to drink.
While municipalities do bring clean water into the home, the pipes, soder, and fixtures
may contain high levels of lead. The EPA recommends testing all homes on city water for
lead if the home was built before 1986. Lead testing is inexpensive and does not need a
special bottle for testing. The real estate transaction is a great time to test because
often the remedy can be negotiated as part of the closing. A simple reverse osmosis
system at the kitchen sink will do.
Did you know Indiana is #1 in the production of the illegal drug methamphetamine?
According to Indiana State Police, 1 in 10 vacant homes has some level of meth residue.
Meth residue left behind by users just smoking it twice can contaminate a home and
make you sick. State Police tell us that meth has been found in homes of all price
points, even million dollar houses. Make sure you know the home you are buying is safe
by testing for meth residue.
In 1978, lead paint was banned. Homes before 1978 commonly have lead based paint. We can test any home for lead paint.
