What MOM's need to know about RADON!
As moms, we go to great lengths to protect our family. We make sure our kids eat healthy food, we buckle them up in the car. But one killer is hiding in our homes: Radon. Radon kills. Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas. Radon is odorless, tasteless, colorless, yet it has the power to kill. The EPA estimates Radon causes 1,200 people in the US to develop Radon-related lung cancer each year, making Radon the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S.
What should moms know?
Moms should be aware that Radon is a naturally occurring, radio-active gas that creeps into homes through various paths including cracks in the basement foundation, or through a coverless sump pit. Radon becomes trapped in the home and a simple ventilation system will help eliminate the Radon concern. Discover if your home is safe by purchasing a home test kit at your local hardware store, or hire a licensed Radon tester to conduct a test in your home.
Test your home today, your children and pets will thank you for making their environment safe and healthy to live in.
