Understanding how an invisible, odorless gas can cause harm.
What are the health risks of radon exposure?
The Environmental Protection Agency classified radon as a human carcinogen in 1988.
- Today radon is the #1 cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in the U.S.
- Smokers who are exposed to radon will significantly increase their chance of developing lung cancer.
- Over 20,000 Americans die of radon-related lung cancer each year.
- Breathing radon gas is a greater health risk than ingesting water that contains radon.
- Radon poses a greater health risk to children than to adults.
While any exposure to radon can be considered potentially damaging, the EPA recommends that homeowners aim for radon levels below 2 picocuries per liter (2pCi/L). For more information, please contact us today and our local mitigation specialist will answer your questions.
