Radon in Nashville is a real hazard to homeowners:
Radon detection use to be dismissed by a majority of real estate agents. Not anymore. Scientific and medical research have proved that radon gas in the home can be deadly. Prolonged exposure is as bad, if not worse, than being a heavy smoker.
Radon vapor in Tennessee is widespread and a clear and present danger to the health of residents in a majority of homes. Nashville radon detection is particularly severe. Murfreesboro, Lebanon, Franklin and Dickson Tennessee also have very high levels of radon gas.
Radon mitigation is easily taken care of by venting the crawl space with perforated PFC piping, UNDER a vapor barrier (I have seen installations on top). Radon mitigation can be done for just a few thousand dollars, and uses very little electricity to run the fan that helps vent the piping. This also serves the dual purpose of venting some moisture from the crawl space. Moisture in a crawl space is another enemy of a home, that can lead to dry-rot. Moisture in a crawl space also helps propagate radon gas.
