Winston Salem Radon Mitigation for HUD
Reading through our update last month provided a lot of insight in the new direction HUD is going in regard to the safety of tenants. The new updates are now requiring radon testing to be completed on every unit of multi-family homes that are financed through HUD. It is important to point out that every unit must be tested. Every unit that has high levels of radon gas will be in need of Winston Salem Radon Mitigation in order to stay up to date and current with the most recent guidelines.
The reason testing is so important is that this gas cannot be seen or smelled. Effectively, the only way you will be able to know if your Winston Salem home is in need of further action is through having a test completed. With a test completed, you will be able to take the next appropriate steps.
The two main tests you should be aware of are a short term test and a long term test. The short term test may take as short as a week to be completed, while a long term test may take over a month. Both tests are deemed to be accurate, so it is up to personal preference which test is right for your Winston Salem, NC home.
Handling Winston Salem Radon Mitigation and Test Results
Once you get your Winston Salem test results back, you will have a much better idea of the scope of the danger. If your gas levels are high, then Winston Salem radon mitigation is a must. If your gas levels are low, then no further action is required. Regardless, you will want to speak with a radon specialist to help you determine whether or not there is further action required.

The reason these HUD regulations have come about is because of the more than 20,000 deaths we have been seeing each year. These deaths are continuing as radon gas is now the second leading cause of lung cancer. This gas is reportedly in roughly one out of every fifteen homes, meaning it effects more homes than you may think. Now is the time to take action, and stay up to date with the HUD guidelines.
