Bloomfield Radon Mitigation Regulations
As you may be aware from the article we posted last week, it is now mandatory for all multi-family homes that are financed through HUD to have a radon test. This test must be conducted in all units of the Bloomfield, MI multi-family home to ensure that the entire area is safe. Additionally, all of these units will be required to have a Bloomfield radon mitigation system installed if they have high levels of gas.
To put things in perspective, the gas will kill about 20,000 people this year unless serious action is taken. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Like most lung diseases, the build of and effects take a long period of time before they are prevalent. For example, when someone smokes cigarettes, we do not immediately see them being diagnosed with cancer. Having a nationwide regulation that will affect so many homeowners, and so many more lives, is a powerful thing in the improvement in the safety with Bloomfield radon mitigation.
