Indoor Radon Is Carcinogenic
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive compound chemical that is released through the soil floor of crawl spaces and basements. It can even seep through the cracks in concrete which is why it’s imperative that your home or workspace is assessed for proper abatement and removal. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Surgeon General, and many more federal health organizations and agencies agree that homeowners and businesses should test for radon. Modern day science has concurred specific actions must be taken as short periods of exposure can lead to serious internal damage. Contact can result in numerous medical conditions, serious injury, and cancers such as:
- Bronchioloalveolar Carcinoma (Lung Cancer)
- Silicosis Or Asthma
- Dyspnea (Shortness of Breath)
- Cough & General Chest Pain
- Tuberculosis & Other Autoimmune Diseases
Don’t Risk Health With Home Testing Kits
Assessment for safe levels of radon takes a team of field investigators and lab technicians to accurately measure radon trapped in small spaces, attics, and architectural areas exposed to soil and gravel basement floors. With neither a color nor smell, radon can only be properly detected using expensive commercial equipment performed by licensed and trained radon testers. A very prevalent problem in the winter months, radon enters the home several different ways and through certain substances and building materials such as:
- Smoke & Ash
- Asbestos & Sand Dust
- Soil, Gravel, & Cement
