Radon Testing & Mitigation
What is Radon?
According to the EPA, radon is a naturally occurring gas that forms from the breakdown of uranium in the rock, soil, and water beneath your building. Radon can become trapped indoors after it enters through porous materials or cracks in your foundation. While radon is found naturally in our atmosphere, it disperses rapidly and is not generally a health issue outdoors. However, radon becomes a concern when exposure occurs indoors as it isn’t easily detected by smell or sight.
Why Test for Radon?
Breathing radon over time poses a serious risk to one’s health. Radon exposure is the leading cause of lung cancer for nonsmokers in the United States. The good news is that there are simple steps you can take to ensure everyone in your building is safe from this dangerous and invisible gas.
