Radon is a silent killer.
Recognized as the second leading cause of Lung Cancer in the United States (second only to cigarrette use) Radon has become an increasing concern among homeowners and residents. In fact, in an effort to increase awareness of this potential hazard, state and federal agencies have invested heavily in campaigns to educate the public.
Becuase Pennsylvania has a particularly high likelihood for Radon issues in homes, and some of the highest Radon levels in the entire country have been found here, a focus of much of these campaigns has been to increase the awareness and understanding of Radon issues in Pennsylvania.
How common is Radon?
Radon occurs naturally in rock and soil, where it then rises up and can get trapped inside of homes. Unfortunately for Pennsylvanians, Radon is particularly common in our part of the country. In fact, it's estimated that 40% (or 1 in ever 2 1/2 homes) in the state of Pennsylvania have higher than acceptable Radon levels!
Due to the likelihood of Radon issues in Pennsylvania homes, as well as the fact that some of the highest Radon levels in the country have been found in the state, Pennsylvania currently ranks as having the third highest Radon average in the entire country.
How do you know if you have a Radon issue?
Because Radon Gas is odorless, colorless, and tasteless, it may be in your home right now without you even knowing it. That's why Radon testing is so important. Following proper Radon testing, a Radon Mitigation System can be installed to address your Radon issue should one exist.
