Radon is a colorless, odorless, naturally-occurring radioactive gas, that is the second leading cause of LUNG CANCER
Radon is naturally in the atmosphere in trace amounts. Outdoors, radon disperses rapidly and, generally, is not a health issue.
Most radon exposure occurs inside homes, schools and workplaces.
Radon gas becomes trapped indoors after it enters buildings through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Indoor radon can be controlled and managed with proven, cost-effective techniques.
Breathing radon over time increases your risk of lung cancer. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Nationally, the EPA estimates that about 21,000 people die each year from radon-related lung cancer. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths.
You can take steps to reduce and control the amount of radon in your home. The only way to determine the level of Radon gas in your home is to conduct proper testing. HOMECHEX use state of the art Continuous Radon Measurement (CRM) equipment in conjunction with EPA established protocols and guidelines to measure the levels of radon in your home. Upon conclusion of the measurement period, we analyze the data in our New York State approved lab (ELAP ID 12102) to determine if you and your family are at increased risk. If radon levels are high, contact a certified radon service professional to fix your home. EPA guidance suggests mitigating if levels are at or above 4 pCi/L.
