My wife and I are looking to buy our first home. We recently found one, but a report says the radon levels inside the home are unsatisfactory. I've never really been aware of radon levels in homes before, but of course, look it up and it's not a good thing to have. :-/
- What are the options that I have to mitigate radon levels in the home?
- If radon levels inside the home are high, and a mitigation system is installed, does that mean radon levels outside the home will be just as high? What I mean is, are radon levels only a worry inside because they collect in an enclosed space VS outside in the open air where it's diluted?
- The recent bad report has made me reconsider purchasing this home, even when negotiating price to compensate for radon mitigation. Is my worry justified? Or can installing a system fix it enough to where it's a non-issue?
