January is Radon Action Month!

Radon Action Month

Damage to lungs

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.

Because 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, with no way to escape, Radon can be a significant health hazard.  Nationally, 1 in every 15 homes have a higher than acceptable Radon level, but Radon issues can be much more common in your state or region!

Due to the likelihood of Radon issues in homes, as well as the danger long-term exposure to Radon gas represents, it’s recommended to test your home for Radon and have a mitigation system installed if your Radon level is above the local action level.


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.
