Helpful information from Home Quest Home Inspection this Radon Action Month!
Radon is an odorless, colorless gas that can seep into a home from minute cracks in the foundation. It usually accumulates at the lowest level and as it rises, it dissipates. Radon in your home may lead to lung cancer – in fact, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. According to the EPA, radon can be found in every state in the country, and elevated radon levels occur in as many as 1 in 15 homes.
Testing for radon is an easy and important step in protecting the health of your family.
The EPA offered information on how residents can protect themselves from radon:
EPA and the U.S. Surgeon General recommend that all homes, both with and without basements, be tested for radon. The only way to know if you have elevated levels of Radon is to test.
EPA recommends taking action to fix radon levels above 4 Picocuries per Liter (pCi/L). Addressing high radon levels often costs the same as other home repairs. Fixing high levels of Radon is easy and fairly inexpensive.
Save a Life.
Testing and fixing elevated levels of radon in the home can help prevent lung cancer while creating a healthier home for you and your family.
