Radon Facts From the United States Enviromental Protection Agency Website:
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.
Breathing radon can increase your risk of lung cancer. 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 20,000 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.
Radon has been found in every state
Homes with high levels of radon have been found in every state. In fact, radon levels can vary greatly from
home to home--even levels next door can be very different.
Radon is measured in picocuries per liter of air (pCi/L), a measurement of radioactivity. In the United
States, the average indoor radon level is about 1.3 pCi/L. The average outdoor level is about 0.4 pCi/L. The
U.S. Surgeon General and EPA recommend fixing
homes with radon levels at or above 4 pCi/L. EPA
also recommends that people think about fixing
their homes for radon levels between 2 pCi/L and 4 pCi/L.
You should test for radon
Testing your house for radon is easy. If your
house has a radon problem, it can be fixed.
Fixing a radon problem reduces the risk of lung
cancer for you and your family.
We recommend using a Florida Licensed Radon Proffesional that tests and installs the newests and most up to date Radon Mitigation systems available full time, rather than letting a Home inspector who only does part time occasional Radon testing, do the testing. If you are concerned about Radon, and would like Radon testing with your home inspection, we recommend using Gulf coast Radon testing and Mitigation in Bonita Springs Fl.
