Radon Gas and what you need to know

Radon Gas and what you need to know

There’s lots to learn when you want to buy a home to call your own and getting a proper Islamic loan that’s free of riba is just the first step on the journey. Once you start looking at what’s available in your price range, there are other bits and pieces of information that you’ll need to know about including an overview of harmful things like radon gas.

Radon is a gas that’s odorless, tasteless and colorless. It forms when uranium breaks down and in some cases can cause cancers. There are a few different red flags that consumers need to be aware of.

Make sure to have a professional look at the soil around the property you want to buy since radon concentrates and flows more easily through some soils than others. Make sure that your home inspector does a thorough job of looking at the condition of the foundation. Cracks and openings will allow more of this potentially harmful gas to flow through.

The exchange rate between outdoor and indoor air also influences the amount of radon that you might find yourself subject to. There is often a pressure difference between the outdoor and indoor air that affects the amount of entry points for radon.
