Radon Causes Lung Cancer

 

 

Leading Cause of Lung Cancer for Non-Smokers

This gas called Radon cannot be seen by the naked eye. It can't be touched or grasped. This toxin does not have an odor and can’t be smelled. There is no taste or flavor to recognize. Human beings just need to test for this gas in order to recognize that it is presently in the air.  Categorized as a Class A carcinogen, radon has been known and documented as the number two cause of lung cancer in the U.S. Radon causes over  21,000 cancer of the lungs deaths per year (that means one every 25 minutes).  In our state of Florida, out of every five homes, one home tests elevated levels of radon. Since 4 pCi/L is the EPA action level, it is recommended that all types of Florida buildings can contain these high levels. These buildings include all structures, including manufactured homes, schools and high-rise condominiums.

Radioactive breakdown, is where radon comes from. Considering all of this naturally forming radium, most Florida soils contain it. Florida soils include particles of uranium. This soil gas, arrives into a building by entering into small openings seeping up into and through the foundation of the structure. The buildings act like a small trap similar to smoke trapped underneath  glass.  Concentrations of radon can and have increased to many times that of outdoor levels under these circumstances. You do not have to wonder what your level is. You do not have to live many years in your home without knowledge about radon, because now you know better and are informed. All you have to do is test. If you have an elevated radon, its time to hire the best and most experience company, hire Radon Authority, Florida’s premier radon reduction services company.

When to Mitigate

Mitigate radon when radon becomes a health-hazard. If your radon values are below 8 pCi/l (picoCuries per liter) you should consider re-testing it has been said by some agencies. Other experts, such as EPA, determine 4.pC/l as the action level. WHO has established a lower reading. The fact is, no radon level is safe.   The purpose of retesting is to confirm your radon levels and evaluate the need for mitigation.  Once you receive your new test results, you need to average the two test results. Radon even exists outdoors in the air as well as the soil. Radon gets indoors when it seeps in through cracks and openings in the foundations and building materials, but in Florida, radon can actually be present in those materials, such as block, concrete materials and cement products. Florida is different than most of the country in this sense. Therefore, radon mitigation is analyzed and designed differently than most of the U.S. It really takes an expert with many years of experience to determine just how radon abatement will be implemented. Often, Radon Authority will receive a call from people or home inspectors that think they have a radon mitigation system, but aren't really sure about it. There are also times when a home inspection pro doesn't even know what a radon mitigation system looks like.  Whether the remediation installation is done correctly, under EPA recommendation or not, these radon systems are just sometimes hard to actually determine what they are.

Radon Authority is often asked how high a radon testing level can get. We have tested and mitigated radon levels much higher than 100 pCi/l.  Just imagine not knowing these high levels were in a home for many years and nobody who lived in the home ever knew.  When a radon test is performed and the test shows elevation, we advise to take immediate action should be taken to reduce and further exposure.
