Wipe Out Radon - Radon Mitigation Services
As an American, You Strive To Live a Healthy Lifestyle
You exercise, eat right, and go to great measures to ensure the good health of your body. But even if you do all the right things when caring for yourself and neglect to ensure the safety of the air you breathe, all healthy efforts may be in vain.
Radon exposure can cause lung cancer. EPA estimates that there are approximately 21,000 annual radon-related lung cancer deaths in the U.S. every year, second only to tobacco smoke. The combination of radon exposure and smoking can greatly increase your chances of developing lung cancer.
“Indoor radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It is important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques,” January, 2005. The Surgeon General and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency advise that all homes be tested for radon.
What is Radon?
Radon is an invisible, tasteless gas that can enter your home through cracks and holes in the basement walls and floor. When radon decays, the tiny, ratio-active particles are released into the air you breathe. Breathing in air containing radon may increase your risk of lung cancer. If you smoke and you have radon in your home, your risk is especially high.
What Do the Results of A Radon Test Mean?
The results of a radon test will give you the level of your home’s indoor radon level. EPA recommends that action is taken to reduce the radon level in your home if the test results are 4pCi/L or higher.
How Do I Find out If Radon Is a problem in my home?
Testing your home for radon is a simple act that will disclose your home’s radon levels. You can do it yourself with a test purchased from your favorite hardware store, or you can hire a radon measurement professional. All areas below the 3rd floor should be tested and the results will be clear in 48 hours.
