Islamic finance can help homeowners watch out for riba and radon gas

Getting Islamic finance means that you can stay compliant with Sharia Law and steer clear from Riba, but there are other possible risks you need to be aware of when it comes to the home ownership package. Radon gas is one of those things a new homeowner might not even be aware of. It’s the byproduct of the breakdown of naturally radioactive material that’s found in the ground. This radon escapes from the ground into the outdoor air and it can also leak into the basement of your home if left unchecked.

Concerns over this started in the 1970s when there were homes that were found to have unusually high levels. If you’ve got a home office or bedrooms in the basement of your home, or you spend an unusual amount of time there, you need to be aware of the dangers this radon gas presents.

Here’s a few things that you can do to reduce the risk:

  • Sealing the area around a sump pump is a good start.
  • Sealing up any major cracks and making repairs to any wall cracks will reduce your energy bills and head off any radon exposure at the same time.
  • Ventilating the basement by opening any windows is another precaution you can take.

Remember that getting the right Islamic loans is only part of what you need to do for the health and security of your family.
