Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon is a dangerous gas that comes from the decaying of Uranium in the ground. It is naturally a gas and can be inhaled, eventually leading to lung cancer. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking and ahead of second hand smoke. Radon is especially dangerous in residential housing because it can concentrate in basements and crawlspaces. The scariest part is that it is odorless, colorless and tasteless. The ONLY way to know if you have Radon is to test specifically for it. Radon can also be in your well water which can lead to higher levels in the air.
Radon can be in all the houses in your neighborhood or in just a few, the only way to know if it is in your home is to have it tested by a professional. The results will tell you the Radon level and you can decide if you need to mitigate. Contact MadCity Environmental today to set up your in-home Radon Test.
You’ve found radon in your home – what should you do…? If you have discovered high radon levels that need to be reduced, you want to hire a professional. It is very important to use a properly-trained mitigator. Radon mitigation is a process that we utilize to reduce radon gas concentrations in the breathing zones of your home. Mitigation of radon in the air is accomplished through proper air sealing and ventilation.
