What Is Radon And Why Should I Care?
Radon Is A Cancer-Causing, Radioactive Gas. You Can’t See Radon. You Can’t Smell It Or Taste It. But It Could Be A Problem In Your Home.
Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon is chiefly found all over the U.S. and can get into any type of building – homes, offices, and schools – and build up to high levels. Hence, you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time.
Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that exposure to radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.
Certainly, the only way to know if you or your family are at risk from radon is to have it tested. The concentration of radon in the home is measured in picocuries per liter of air (pCi/L). EPA and the Surgeon General strongly recommend taking further action when the home’s radon test results are 4.0 pCi/L or greater. Radon levels less than 4.0 pCi/L may still pose some health risk, and the EPA recommends that you consider fixing your home if the radon level is between 2.0 and 4.0 pCi/L. The higher a home’s radon level, the greater the health risk to you and your family.
Testing is inexpensive and easy. We set up the testing machine for 48 hours. Then, results are downloaded into the laptop for instant analysis. Schedule Your Home Inspection Salt Lake City Utah Today!
