We understand your worry about keeping your family safe, and in this blog post, we want to share some information about radon and how to reduce radon levels in your residence.
Understanding the Risks of Radon Gas
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that seeps in from cracks under the residence and gets trapped indoors. Although it is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, what makes this gas deadly is its radioactive nature which has a not-so-silent effect on one's health. It takes time to develop reactions to this gas, but when talking about health issues like breathing problems, lung cancer, and affected immunity, it is better not to wait for years till your health problems appear.
Identifying the Potential Sources of Radon Gas in Your Home
Radon can be present in indoor spaces due to various sources. The most common source is the soil underneath the infrastructure. Building materials, water supply, natural gas penetrations, plumbing and pipe penetrations, and cable penetrations can also be potential sources of radon entry into your home. Radon gas can be drawn into a house from the ground due to the typically lower indoor air pressure compared to outdoor air pressure. It builds up in the air indoors without causing any sensory alarm and, over time, causes health issues.
Regularly Monitor and Test Radon Levels
Unfortunately, there is no way of predicting radon levels, and comparing it with neighbors may be wasteful as levels vary from area to area and home to home. So, how does one know the radon levels in their homes?
You can get radon testing kits to check the levels. But, given the complexity and dangers of this gas, it is better to get professional help with radon testing and mitigation.
We at Lifetime Radon Mitigation serve you all year round. Our certified staff and technicians can answer any queries you may have. We value your health and will give you detailed information about our testing and mitigation process, tips about what to do in the future, and other recommendations.
Getting a Radon Mitigation System Installed
Installing a radon mitigation system will help you maintain lower radon levels. Our certified professionals can help recommend the best space for installing a radon mitigation system. In case of a leak, it is required to have fans in attics, garages, and/or outside locations.
Moreover, it is important to retest your home every 2-years (even if you have a radon system already installed) to ensure a consistent reduction of radon levels. If you are concerned about retesting or wondering if it is time for a re-test, you can contact us and check on your concerns.
