What is Radon?

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive, toxic gas that forms from the decay of Uranium beneath the Earth’s surface. As radon is created, it leaves behind decay products that contain cancer-causing alpha particles. The lungs are extremely susceptible to damage caused by these alpha particles. Therefore, increasing the chance of developing radon-induced lung cancer.

How does Radon enter a home?

Pressure and concentration differences between the soil beneath your house and the house itself are the main cause of radon entering your home. This is called the Stack Effect. These differences cause the radon gas to diffuse through any openings in the foundation. Thus allowing the radon to enter your home. Different variables contribute to pressure differences including seasonal differences, opening, and closing of windows and doors, rain, and wind, etc. The only way to effectively control and limit radon infiltration is to have a professional mitigation technician evaluate and install a radon mitigation system.  

Why Mitigating Radon is Important.

Once radon is present in your house, it presents a serious health risk when inhaled. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer for nonsmokers in America. This is due to radon-induced lung cancer. An estimated 21,000 deaths a year are caused because of radon. According to the EPA, if radon levels are over 4 PCI/L inside a building, radon mitigation is needed. Therefore, mitigation is important to minimize radon exposure and alleviate the risk of developing radon-induced lung cancer from prolonged exposure.
