bachissimo Posted January 9, 2016 Report Share Posted January 9, 2016 I work in DC but sick of condos and NOISE want to move to a house. We really like the living between Alexandria and DC (officially Alexandria). Very quiet street. Contract ratified. Currently being Radon inspected. Sellers agreed to be out of the house for 48 hrs. I wanted to ask few questions about Radon and would be REALLY GRATEFUL for your thoughts. Note that due to my history/family I am at much higher risk of lung cancer than average. I am also VERY sensitive to noise. Problem is that the best place of the house is the lower level, not really much of a basement, since it is mostly above grade and counted in Sqft. Has a really nice office and appealing features. My first question is, how loud is the most quiet mitigation system? Most likely the work will be in the laundry area which is adjacent to the office, so will I hear anything in the office? My second question is , based on my history should I just avoid the basement for any measurement above 2pc/L? Since mitigation systems apparently can't guarantee a lower level post-mitigation... I think my agent will kill me if I walk out yet again on another house. Also my options are limited since Radon is apparently everywhere in North Virginia. I'd rather stay in Condo over increasing significantly my lung cancer risk. I am really very confused and distressed.... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
