Concerned about radon? In this episode, the Pickle Lady gives you the low-down on what is, what causes it, where you will find it, and what you should do about it. Plus, we feature a stunning Prescott neighborhood nestled in the awe-inspiring rock formations known as the dells.
hello hello hello hey peace this is diane bro with my better half randall bro i don’t know if i’m better i’m just here well that’s true yeah he’s trying yes he’s a work in progress absolutely as we all are here in the canyon yes in prescott this is my all-time favorite neighborhood i adore it if i could i would be here in a heartbeat yeah absolutely uh it’s stunning so we have a very nice friend here phil who agreed to let us come film in his backyard so you can see what it’s like to live here yeah uh it’s just kind of get a little yeah a little view what’s going on here there you go just absolutely beautiful this is backyard but what we love about this is as you know i love the rocks the rocks are my thing uh this is actually actually in this home is built into the dells yes and the dells are a natural rock formation that can only be found in prescott wisconsin and germany that’s right and they are stunning and we don’t know how they form we don’t know how some special i mean other people know we don’t know we don’t know we’re not geologists yeah some yeah no we don’t know i’m not i am into the crystals and all that i do like that i wear my crystals a very very peculiar and bizarre uh process that created the special rock formations referred to as the as the delta but if you are lucky enough to build a home in here and live in here um we have a lot of questions people are like you know you’re surrounded by all this granite and rocks what about the radon radon yeah yeah radon radon is uh it’s a it forms naturally out of the rocks it’s like something to do with radioactivity and uh and all that kind of stuff it’s uh it’s only trace uh trace amounts so like if you don’t hear a whole lot about people hiking in the dells overcome by radon because it’s trace elements so you uh the the problem comes when you have a home that sort of captures the radon and holds it inside for very long periods of time because it’s a clear it it’s kind of a clear gas but here’s the thing it’s not a problem yeah at all uh yeah the very high tech uh eradication systems that they have for radon essentially it’s a fan you know you you you have built in so if you have a custom home and you are surrounded by rocks like this which some people have there’s a way to mitigate that problem yeah and you have a whole uh essentially you just need to circulate it so they’re gonna release it here yeah so they’ll put a pan on it which you need to be aware if you just put granite on your kitchen countertops guess what yeah there’s a radon coming radon comes off of that countertop it’s a natural thing that’s a natural in the environment what you want to have is not have it build up in your home yes but once you address that you mitigate it yes it’s a non-issue yeah so if you have a home that’s built into into the dells um it’s a good idea to have you know monitoring equipment to make sure that the concentrations aren’t building up correct and like i said your mitigation system is essentially a small fan that just kind of circulates the air around and keeps them keeps them low so it’s perfectly perfectly safe to build a home where you have that situation but most most places here in prescott do not um and that’s what i wanted to talk about too this is an unusual and exceptional case you know to be surrounded by these rocks it’s just it’s just stunning it’s a great place to be but not all neighborhoods are built in the dells here in brisket so there are a lot of other neighborhoods that the dells will be five miles away two miles away three miles away and people will say i need to have radon testing yeah you can you can you can you certainly can but but it’s not necessary if you live in a neighborhood like prescott lakes yeah you’re not going to have a radon issue yeah yeah you’re perfectly fine even though zillow will tell you that oh there’s been radon within a mile of this home within five miles of this home you know um not a big deal it’s not although we do have testing if you are still going to be testing yeah we could do we can arrange that testing runs about 125 and they set up the equipment and then you get your reading that says you’re perfectly fine yeah what they’ll do is they’ll put the they’ll put the monitoring equipment in place and generally they’ll seal the home basically don’t let anybody in and out for a few days and they’ll collect it that way so that’s pretty much what the testing is so we wanted to let you know if you’re in the heart of the of the rocks yeah that’s something you might want to consider you need to mitigate that easily done yeah then you can enjoy the beauty there’s a reason why the rocks give off energy people yeah they do have energy and they’re great that’s right it’s a good good god if you don’t live directly in the dells or you’re you know a mile or two away you’re going to be okay yeah but again if you wanted to don’t worry about what zillow says about radon yes don’t get i think zillow is a native american word that means mistaken i think zillow originally means mistake zillow yeah zillow a lot of things wrong on zillow that’s a whole nother pet peeve yeah i could be here all day talking about zombies zillow is just an estimation zillow is not fact always remember that they just kind of gather a few little things and spit it back out at you but you need to go by your local real estate agents yeah what’s going on in the market and what’s legit yeah absolutely yes so anyway here we are in the beautiful dells here of the canyons and we’re sitting at this cool
