Lung cancer is a scary disease and even the thought of it can make radon mitigation seem like a critical task to undertake. Radon is a carcinogenic gas that can build up in your home or office. It’s radioactive and comes from the soil. You can’t see it or smell it, but it can still be present in very toxic amounts. It takes radon mitigation contractors to get the problem under control once discovered.
How to Know If You Need Radon Mitigation
If you plan to buy or sell your home, it’s a good idea to have radon testing done. This way radon mitigation can begin quickly if it’s found to be at dangerous levels. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests that buildings showing an air reading of 4.0 picocuries per liter of radon should undergo radon mitigation. You can perform these tests with home kits, but they are frequently subject to error. It’s best to have professionals perform the radon testing. The results will be quicker, more accurate and help you determine if you need radon mitigation.
Who Should Avoid Radon?
Radon is a cancer causing gas and is harmful to any living creature that breathes. Pets as well as people are at risk for developing cancer from exposure. Those with pre-existing conditions, such as asthma and those that smoke are at higher risks for lung cancer from radon exposure. Over 20,000 lung cancer deaths are attributed to radon exposure making it the second leading cause of lung cancer in America. This makes radon mitigation a top priority when it is found at high levels.
Get Rid of Radon Using Radon Mitigation Techniques.
It’s not always possible to completely get rid of radon. It is possible, with radon mitigation, to bring it down to acceptable levels. Certain amounts of soil can be removed from a crawlspace or dirt-floor basement and removed. Pressurizing the house or building can reduce the radon build-up. Sealing the house from the basement or crawlspace can be an effective radon mitigation technique. The easiest way to reduce radon is to provide lots of ventilation. If the gas isn’t given the chance to build-up, then it’s not a health factor. There are several types of radon mitigation fans available at a reasonable price.
How to Get Radon Mitigation Service
Once you have received a positive result for high radon levels you will need to find a contractor that specializes in radon mitigation. Try online resources that offer customer reviews so that you can be sure it’s a company that is experienced in radon mitigation. It’s important to the health of you and your family to make sure that the problem is handled correctly. They will then make an appointment to come out and give you their opinion as to what the best course of action is for your particular radon mitigation needs. Radon mitigation methods can vary greatly between crawlspaces and full basement areas. Some will determine that levels are easily controlled through sealing rather than extensive ventilation. They will help you find the most cost-efficient and effective radon mitigation available for your particular needs.
