||Radon Risk Zones
Radon mitigation is perhaps the most underestimated threat to good health within the home.
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that is present throughout the United States. It has been classified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a carcinogen since 1968, and is at its most dangerous when built up in concentrated levels within a home.
It has been estimated that more than 20,000 deaths each year have been tied to radon gas exposure, making radon exposure the second-largest cause of lung cancer (after cigarette smoke) in the USA.
Despite the great danger that radon presents, many homeowners have not yet tested their home to see if there is a radon threat present. If a test shows that radon is present in your home at levels higher than 4 pCi/L, you are in need of mitigation.
Controlling Radon Levels with National Radon Defense
There are several mitigation methods and systems available for preventing radon gas from entering a home -- and some are much more effective than others. Common mitigation methods include soil suction (pulling radon out from below the floor and pushing it outside), sealing, house/room pressurization, heat recovery ventilation, and natural ventilation.
When you meet with your local National Radon Defense contractor, they can help you accurately detect the levels of any radon present, advising you on which mitigation options would work best for you.
