The Importance of Radon Testing and Mitigation

According to the EPA, the World Health Organization and many other public health organizations, radon is second only to cigarette smoking as a leading cause for lung cancer, causing 21,000 deaths every year. Any home or building – new or old, basement or no basement – can have a radon problem. But because you can’t see or smell radon gas, the only way to know if the radon levels in your home require radon mitigation is to test. And if your home is in need of a radon mitigation system to lower your radon levels, we’re here to help.

What is Radon?

Radon is a colorless, odorless gas produced by uranium decay in rocks and soil. Facts about radon:

  • Radon gas is found in every state
  • Homes with crawl spaces are at greater risk for high radon levels
  • Radon is as cancer-causing as tobacco smoke & asbestos, causing about 21,000 deaths yearly
  • Level at which a radon mitigation system is needed, according to the EPA: 4 pCi/L
  • Low-level radon gas exposure over time is more harmful than short periods of high-level exposure
  • Radon levels can be up to ten times higher during the winter

What Determines Radon Levels?

Radon comes from the breakdown or decay of uranium found underground. The soil under and around your home or building is by far the largest source of radon gas, and the radon levels in your home are affected by:

  • Strength of the radon gas source
  • Ease of entry into the home
  • Air ventilation rate

It’s easier than ever to get a home radon test. You can buy a DIY test kit online or at your local big-box store, or have Thrasher out for a professional continuous radon monitor test for the most accurate and thorough results in as little as two days. 

Radon Testing for Your Home

Radon is completely odorless, colorless, and tasteless, which means that its presence is impossible to detect without a home radon test. Even if your neighbors have tested their homes for radon and come back with low results, your home could still be at risk – radon can exist in any home and any location, regardless of how old or new the property. The EPA recommends testing your home for radon every two years.
