As you may already know, radon is a very toxic gas that is also radioactive! It can be found in your home, in your office, in your classroom, or in any type of enclosed building or room. In fact, it is found in every state in some capacity and some states have higher levels of radon exposure than others. New homes have radon as well as older homes so no one is exempt from testing for radon levels. This is very important as radon is very dangerous and is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. If you haven’t tested your home for radon, then you need to do so immediately. Radon mitigation can help solve the problem if you do have radon in your home.
Radon is also odorless, meaning that you cannot detect it through smell. It is tasteless, which means that you will never be able to taste it. It is invisible. This means that you will not be able to see it either. All in all, it is undetectable unless you hire someone to test your home for you or you perform a series of at home tests for radon exposure and high radon levels. If you suspect that your home has high levels of radon, then you need to test your home or office building as soon as possible. You can do this by purchasing an at home test and if you find levels of radon, then you can hire a professional radon technician to come and test your home for you. They can also come in and remediate the problem in one single day. As the process does not take long and it is essential for your health, then you need to test your home immediately.
Luckily, if you do have high levels of radon in your home, then there are many different types of radon reduction systems that you can purchase in order to remediate your radon problem. One type of radon reduction system that you can purchase for your home is through a radon technician. This means that you can hire someone to come in and install a system in your home that is guaranteed to reduce the pooling of radon in your home. This type of system will also remove the radon from your home and filter it outside. The pros to hiring someone to do it for you include the fact that you can be assured that it is being done correctly and your problem is solved. You will no longer have to worry about it because once the system is in place, then it is constantly removing radon from your home. The con to this type of system is that it will cost you money to hire someone to take care of the situation. But just think about how costly lung cancer treatments can be.
You can also try to remediate it yourself. There are several ‘do it at home’ methods that can be very successful. However you will want to constantly test your home in order to ensure that it is still radon free.
