Did you know northern, landlocked states have the highest levels of radon in the US? Yes, that includes Ohio. Radon is an odorless radioactive gas that can cause lung cancer over time. If you have high levels of radon in your home or commercial property, you need mitigation services immediately.
How do you find out what your radon levels are? With a simple test. A radon test will let you know whether or not further action is needed.
Don’t wait until it’s too late. For radon testing and radon mitigation around Springfield, Dayton, and the greater Miami Valley area, contact Air Duct Cleaning Company today.
For non-smokers, it’s the number one cause of lung cancer. Make no mistake, radon in your home is no joke or minor inconvenience. This is a radioactive gas that’s odorless and invisible. Breathing in radon increases everyone’s chances of developing lung cancer, especially if you’re a smoker.
The EPA estimates that radon causes more than 20,000 deaths from lung cancer every year.
Radon can be found in every state, and nearly 1 in 15 homes have radon levels that are too high. The only way to detect radon is to test for it. The good news is, testing is simple, and removing radon is quick and cost-effective.
Most radon tests last between 2 and 7 days. For many people, it’s as easy as opening a package and putting the test kit in the right place. After sending the test kit back to the address in the package, the company will send your radon test results in about 2 weeks.
Test kits can be purchased for $5 to $30, depending on the type of kit you need. They can be found online, in hardware stores, or through your state’s website. Alternatively, you can call a professional for radon inspection.
