Radon, an odorless, tasteless, colorless gas is ubiquitous across the earth’s surface. It is unpredictable often appearing in one home, but not in the neighbor’s home. We can’t stress enough about the importance of checking for radon levels in your home as it can pose serious long term health risks to you and your family.
It is good to educate yourself on the subject. You should be aware that radon levels are usually higher in basements, cellars and living spaces in contact with the ground. Secondly, radon comes from the natural decay of uranium that is found in nearly all soils. It typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Your home traps radon inside, where it will build up and become potentially harmful.
For your peace of mind, contact our radon identification and control company to learn more about the radon mitigation process. It is easy to maintain a safe radon-free environment for your family by testing your home regularly. Never forget that radon is a serious health concern so taking steps to reduce exposure will greatly benefit the health and safety of your family.
