If you are buying a home or selling your home, have it tested for radon. Fix the home if the radon level is 4 picoCuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher. Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases, may be reduced. Radon gas 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 country. It's important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques.
The scariest part about radon is that many homeowners are unaware of the potential dangers of the gas. Why should we care? Below are a few alarming facts about this unseen danger:
- Radon is a radioactive gas that is undetectable by the naked eye - you can't see, smell, or taste it. To know if it is in your home, a professional radon test must be performed.
- Following tobacco, radon poisoning is the No. 2 cause of lung cancer according to the Surgeon General.
- An estimated 21,000 lung cancer deaths are reported every year due to radon exposure according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
- The EPA estimates that one in every 3 homes in our area has elevated levels of radon. This means many homeowners are affected and don't know about it.
