In celebration of National Public Health Week (April 4 - 10), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) awarded more than $220,000 to the New Mexico Environment Department. The state of New Mexico will use the money to protect people in New Mexico - especially school-age children - from exposure to radon gas and other indoor air pollutants.
The EPA says radon is a major part of public health protection. They work regularly with organizations to reduce the environmental health risks of indoor air contaminants such as radon and asthma triggers. Health organizations worldwide have determined that there is no "safe level" of indoor radon. Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Any home or building, old or new, can have a radon problem. The only way to determine if a home or building has an elevated radon level is to test. There are several radon testing options available and your qualified radon contractor can help you choose the best method for your home.
