For Home Owners The U.s. Surgeon General Recommends All Homes Be Tested for Radon Gas.
Breathing Radon in Your Home Can Cause Lung Cancer.
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas released in rock, soil and water that can build up to dangerous levels inside any home; this means new and old homes, well sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without a basement. Radon gas is odorless and invisible and the only way to know if your home has a radon problem is to test for it.
Radon is the Number One Cause of Lung Cancer For Non-Smokers
Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among people who do not smoke. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer for people who do. EPA estimates that radon causes more than 21,000 deaths from lung cancer each year in the U.S. If you smoke and your home has a high radon level, your risk of lung cancer can increase even more.
Take Action Today!
