Did you know that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S.? You don’t have to be in a lab or near dangerous construction sites to be exposed to radon. It occurs naturally in the soil, and can be seeping into your home through your water supply or gaps in your flooring.
I offer Radon testing as part of the home inspection process or if you just want to have your home tested for radon. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. The EPA estimates that there are about 21,000 annual radon-related lung cancer deaths in the United States. Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas that you cannot see, smell or taste. The EPA also estimates that 1 in 15 homes has an elevated radon level of 4.0 pCi/L or above. The EPA recommends taking mitigation action if the radon level is 4.0 pCi/L or above. Homes should also be re-tested every two years or after and renovations in a home. Go to the EPA website www.epa.gov/radon for more information on radon and free downloadable pamphlets.
