Radon Testing and Information

Surgeon General’s health advisory…

Radon Testing and Radon Information
“Indoor radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the county,” Dr. Carmona said. “It’s important to know that this threat is completely preventable. It can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques.”

Learn how to test your home for radon gas…

Radon Gas…
You can’t see or smell it, but you do have it. How can I make such a statement? Because it is a natural occurring gas that emanates from the soil, ground water and even the oceans of the world. Thus a zero level is not a possibility. Regrettably the chances are great that your indoor radon level in your home is higher than out on the back porch.
Why is this case?…Well how do we build houses?

We dig a hole in the ground in order to place the foundation for a building in it. We have in effect taken the cork out of a portion of the earth.Yes the top soil and vegetation serves as a cap for the earth. Next we build a dwelling that is as air tight as possible. So we have just corked the bottle with our house and we now live inside of it.

All appears to be safe and secure. But houses do breathe. Actually a house is like a big vacuum cleaner. Think of it this way…We heat our homes in the winter. Where does the warm air go? Yes, it rises up through the roof, thus a portion of this air is replaced or suctioned into our homes from the ground. This condition also occurs whenever the wind blows or the barometric pressure changes. The result is that soil gases in the vicinity of of your basement will enter your home through cracks and penetrations in the basement floor and walls.What should you do?

Please test your home! Radon is a radioactive gas!

I can’t begin to tell you how many people that just cannot bring themselves to do this simple inexpensive 2-7 day test.

Why? Here might be a couple of reasons.

Why There is No Radon Hysteria
“Consider the danger of radon gas.If there is one environmental problem that is real, it is radon…thereis no hysteria over radon…because it’s natural…”Rush Limbaugh, 1992
“Radon is natural. Radon is not a by-product of industrial or consumer activities. Because there is no one to “blame,” it has been difficult to inflame the passions of the public. Even outdoor air has some amountof radon in it.”Kent Jeffreys
