The importance of getting your home tested for Radon.

It is important to get your home tested for radon because prolonged exposure to high levels of radon gas can pose serious health risks. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, after smoking, and is responsible for thousands of lung cancer deaths each year.

Radon gas is invisible and odorless, making it undetectable without proper testing. Radon can enter homes through cracks in floors and walls, gaps in foundations, or through well water. Even homes without basements can have high radon levels. By testing your home, you can determine if radon levels are elevated and take appropriate measures to mitigate radon, such as sealing cracks, improving ventilation, or installing a radon mitigation system.

It’s important to note that radon levels can vary from home to home, so even if your neighbor’s house has low levels, your home could still have higher levels.

By testing your home for radon, you can ensure a healthier living environment for you and your family and reduce the risk of lung cancer associated with radon exposure.
