Radon Levels Are on the Rise need to inspect them what you think ?

Recommended Posts

Worried about the health of your loved ones? Lung cancer, caused by the inhalation of the radioactive gas, radon, is claiming almost 21,000 lives every year! 

This colorless, odorless, invisible gas sneaks into your home without you even noticing! Radon enters through gaps in suspended floors, construction joints, cracks in solid floors, cracks in walls, cavities inside walls and gaps around service pipes. Once in your basement or any part of your home, this gas slowly becomes more and more concentrated, harming you and your family. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, a level of 4 picocuries of radon per liter (pCi/L) is the Action Level. Any radon levels above this are dangerous and you need to take immediate action to mitigate radon in such a scenario.

You can test radon levels yourself, but getting expert help is a wiser choice, as professionals offer radon mitigation services if required. Stop taking risks! Simply contact PA DEP (Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection) certified radon mitigation specialists for a radon inspection of your home.

If you are wondering, “Why does Pennsylvania have such a high concentration of radon,” the answer probably lies in the fact that the state has unique geology – distinctive soil and rocks! According to very recent findings, the rise in radon levels in the state may have a connection with the fracking activities, although this is yet to be confirmed. Fracking is the process of industrial development by which water is used to extract natural gas and oil from shale plays (formations).
