I think just last week I wrote you that I usually don't write serious posts.
Then I wrote about Covid. . .
Now, here I am again writing a serious post.
When we lived in our house - we lived there for 36 years - I did a radon test once a year - in the basement. Every year it came back perfect.
We moved in June to an apartment and never thought about radon. For some reason the other day I purchased a First Alert Test from Amazon. My husband saw it and said I should take it back - he said we don't need to know (lol). I tried to do it, but Amazon said it was hazard material and they would not be able to take it back, but they would give me the money back.
My husband threw it away. I saw it and thought why waste it - so I got it out of the trash and decided to do it.
Well, I did it.
Got the results back and it was a 10.3! That is like nuclear level in the radon field!!!!!!!!!!
Now what do we do?
We called a couple places in case we wanted a professional test done to see the cost. Then we went to Loew's to pick up another First Alert to do another test. It is running now.
We have not told the manager yet at the complex. We want to wait until we get the second test. Then we will go to the manager and what??? Our lease is until June. I think we will be all right until June. But what do we do in June?
CAN YOU BELIEVE WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO MOVE?
I DO NOT WANT TO LIVE HERE WITH A LEVEL OF 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The problem is that it is going to be a big job to move and costly. I feel the apartment complex pay for the move, but I doubt they will.
This is just so upsetting.
