The danger of radon gas in our homes - concept with periodic table of the elements, radioa

Radon Problem

Radon is a radioactive gas that is naturally occurring in the environment. It is estimated that 1 out of every 15 homes in the United States has elevated radon levels.

 

Elevated levels of radon can cause serious health problems, including lung cancer.

 

Dino 626 Environmental offers radon testing to determine if your home has elevated levels of this dangerous gas. Our tests are fast, easy, and accurate. We also provide mitigation services to reduce radon levels in your home if necessary.

Radon Testing

When it comes to radon, it is essential to take the necessary precautions to ensure that levels in your home are safe. This means having regular radon testing done, and if levels are high, then taking steps to mitigate the radon. Many companies offer radon testing services, as well as mitigation systems. It is crucial to choose a reputable company that will install a system that effectively reduces radon levels.

 

Radon tests are simple and easy to use and can tell you whether or not your home has high levels of this gas. There are several different types of radon tests available, so be sure to choose one best suited to your needs.

 

. A radon test kit is an easy and inexpensive way to measure the radon level in your home.

There are two general types of radon test kits: 

Short-term radon test kit measure radon for 2–90 days for quick results. 

Long-term radon test kits measure radon in your home for over 90 days and are more likely to tell your home's yearly average level.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What is EPA's Action Level for Radon :

EPA recommends that homes be fixed if the radon level is 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter) or more. Because there is no known safe level of radon exposure, EPA also recommends that Americans consider fixing their home for radon levels between 2 pCi/L and 4 pCi/L.

 

Are we sure that radon is a health risk?

EPA already has a wealth of scientific data on the relationship between radon concentrations and exposure and the development of lung cancer.

 

Should I test the soil for radon before building?

 Even if soil testing reveals low levels of radon gas in the soil, the amount of radon that may enter the finished house cannot be accurately predicted because one cannot predict the impact that the site preparation will have on introducing new radon pathways or the extent to which a vacuum will be produced by the house.
