Radon Myth #6
Myth #6 –Radon tests from a neighbor’s house are accurate indications of radon in your own home. This is one of the most common myths.
Fact: “A study from the National Institute of Health showed that soil composition and ground permeability are key factors affecting radon in your home, and they are factors that are specific to your plot of land (NIH).” While this is true, it is also true that a homes construction method and the contractors building practices weigh heavily in whether or not radon is able to permeate the home.
