RADON TESTING & MITIGATION
Radon is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that is naturally created from the decay of radioactive elements, such as uranium, which are found in different amounts in soil and rock throughout the world.
HOW DOES RADON EFFECT ME?
Radon breaks down into solid radioactive elements called radon progeny, which then attach themselves to dust and other airborne particulates that can be absorbed into the lungs through respiration. As radon and radon progeny in the air break down, they give off radiation that damage the DNA inside the body’s cells.
Continued exposure to a high Radon level causes these radioactive cells to replicate in a process called mutagenesis, this process deeply affects the overall cellular activity within lung tissue and causes an observable increase in the chance of contracting lung cancer.
We can test for radon with our state-of-the-art monitors. This process is very simple; we set up the monitor for the two-day testing process. After 48 hours of continuous testing, we will have a detailed report with results, recommendations, and our comments.
