Have you ever tested your air quality?
Is there radon in the air at your home or office?
Radon is an invisible, odorless, naturally-occurring radioactive gas that is also a proven carcinogen found throughout the U.S.
It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water. It can get into the air you breathe and result in a high indoor radon level.
The EPA estimates radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, and the second leading cause of lung cancer resulting in around 21,000 preventable lung cancer deaths every year.
As frightening as these statistics are, radon can be detected relatively easily and mitigation is usually possible. Although radon-resistant construction techniques can be effective in preventing radon entry, testing is the only way to know if you’re exposed and every new home should be tested after occupancy. Further, the EPA and Surgeon General recommend testing all homes.
Testing is easy, and if detected, a mitigation system can be activated affordably by a qualified professional to reduce radon levels by up to 99%.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found that indoor air can contain up to 100 times more pollutants than outdoor air, making indoor air quality a real health concern. To determine if radon is present in the household air you breathe, choose the yogi.
