Radon is a Cancer-Causing, Radioactive Gas
You cannot see, smell or taste radon. But it still may be a problem in your home. When you breathe air containing radon, you increase your risk of getting lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General of the United States has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.
You Should Test for Radon
Testing is the only way to find out your home's radon levels. The EPA and Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon.
You Can Fix A Radon Problem
If you find that you have high radon levels, there are ways to fix a radon problem. Even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels.
Why You Should Test For Radon?
1) Radon has been found in homes all over the United States. Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Radon can also enter your home through well water. Your home can trap radon inside.
Any home can have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. In fact, you and your family are most likely to get your greatest radiation exposure at home. That is where you spend most of your time.
Nearly one out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level (4pCi/L or more). Contact your state radon office for information about radon in your area.
2) EPA and the Surgeon General Recommend That You Test Your Home. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk form radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon.
You cannot predict radon levels based on state, local and neighborhood radon measurements. Do not rely on radon test results taken in other homes in your neighborhood to estimate the radon level in your home. Homes that are next to each other have different indoor radon levels. Testing is the only way to find out what your home's radon level is.
