Radon Testing & Mitigation

Does Your Home Have High Radon Levels?

Radon Mitigation
Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among nonsmokers and the second most common cause of lung cancer among the general population. The Surgeon General and EPA recommend testing for Radon and decreasing Radon levels in homes with levels above 4.0 Picocuries per Liter of air (pCi/L). Even moderately elevated levels of Radon pose a risk because there is no safe level of radon. If your homes radon levels are confirmed to be at or above 4.0 pCi/L ACT NOW!

Radon Mitigation Questions

What Is Radon?
You can’t see, smell, or taste radon. However, it still might be an issue inside your house. Radon is a gas atom, and it features a half-life of only about 4 days. Radon gas is completely natural and it forms during the decay of uranium-238, an element that is naturally present in our soil.
Can Radon Cause Lung Cancer?
The long-term impact from Radon exposure is lung cancer. When you inhale a radon atom, it will disintegrate while inside your lungs and become polonium-218 which is a metal. This metal atom can give off alpha particles, beta particles and gamma rays and eventually turns into lead-210. It’s this process that results in the transformation of healthy lung tissue and can cause cancer. Smoking combined with Radon exposure enormously increases the risk of lung cancer.
How Does Radon Get into a House?
There are many ways Radon can get into your house including drains, sump pumps, basement floor cracks, basement wall cracks construction joints, loose pipe fittings and exposed soil. Radon might also enter the air of a home from well water. Because radon is a gas, it can easily spread from the ground into the air in a home. The main method in which radon enters a home is through the basement walls and floor including crawl spaces.
