Take Action During National Radon Action Month
During January’s National Radon Action Month, the U.S. Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) urge all Americans to protect their health by testing their homes for radon.
You can’t see, smell or taste radon, but it could be present at a dangerous level in your home. Radon is second only to cigarette smoking as a leading cause for lung cancer, causing 21,000 deaths in America every year. The EPA and U.S. Surgeon General urge all Americans to protect their health by testing their homes, schools and other buildings for radon.
The EPA recommends testing for radon every 2 years. Here’s how you can take action during National Radon Action Month this January:
If you’ve already got a radon mitigation system in place: a simple, DIY charcoal test will ensure your system is still working properly and no new entry points have developed. You can buy a kit at most hardware stores or online for about $15.
If you don’t have a mitigation system and haven’t tested recently: opt for a professional CRM (continuous radon monitor) test. Professional setup and hourly readings over a 48-hour period will give you the most accurate results, and our pros will guide you on the best solutions for mitigation should your test results come back above the EPA action level of 4.0 pCi/L. Complete the form for more information or to schedule a test.
