What is Radon?

Radon is a cancer causing radioactive gas. Invisible and odorless, Radon is undetectable without proper testing. Resulting from the natural breakdown of uranium in the soil and rock under many homes and buildings, Radon enters structures through cracks or gaps in the foundation.

Where is Radon found?

Resulting from the natural breakdown of uranium in the soil and rock under many homes and buildings, Radon enters structures through cracks or gaps in the foundation. This can present an issue, as the Radon gas is now trapped within the structure with no way for it to adequately dissipate. The installation of a Radon Mitigation System however, can reduce the Radon level in structures, dramatically reducing this hazard.

Does Radon cause Cancer?

The more we learn about the effects of Radon, the greater the issue it appears to be. Radon is the second leading cause of Lung Cancer in the United States and the leading cause of Lung Cancer among non-smokers. Radon is estimated to cause in excess of 21,000 deaths per year due to lung cancer.

About Radon Mitigation

The EPA recommends that any building with radon levels of 4 picocuries per liter of air or above be corrected by installation of a Radon Mitigation System. Disaster Blaster's properly trained, certified, and State licensed professionals can install a Radon Mitigation System. A properly installed Radon Mitigation System will redirect the radon gas from ground below the building or home and vent the radon above the building thereby reducing radon levels within the building.

About Radon Testing

The US EPA recommends that ALL homes and schools be tested for radon contamination every three years. Contact Disaster Blaster if you are in need of a Radon Mitigation System. While we do not perform Radon Testing, you may purchase a Home Radon Test Kit. All test kits are analyzed by an independent third party.
