January is National Radon Action Month and it is the time to test your home for radon. Radon is considered a health hazard and can affect your indoor air quality and your health.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in America.
You cannot see radon or smell it but it can be present in your environment. Testing your home for radon can eliminate the risk of exposing yourself and others to radon.
Radon Testing Tips Recommended by the EPA:
- Take a short term test. If your results is a 4pCi/L or higher take a follow up test.
- Follow up with either a long-term test or a second short term test
- If followed up with a long term test, fix your home. A qualified radon service professional can fix your home.
Start the year by protecting your home and your family and test your environment for radon. Radon is a health hazard with a simple solution.
