A Healthy Resolution You Can Keep

Take Action to Make Your Home Healthier

We’ve all made new years resolutions and broken them by the end of January. How about making a resolution that is good for your whole family and is easy to maintain? Testing your home for radon is a quick and easy way to ensure the air your family is breathing inside your home is safe from the dangers of radon exposure. And, it just so happens January is National Radon Action Month, so there is no better time to schedule a radon test with Certified Radon!


Why is radon exposure such a concern?

  1. Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to the EPA. Overall, radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer. Radon exposure is responsible for an estimated 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year, with 2,900 of these deaths occurring among people who have never smoked.
  2. Radon is a sneaky carcinogen. You can’t see it, smell it or taste it. The only way to know if it exists in your home is to test for radon gas. Having your home tested by a certified radon professional will endure the more accurate and reliable results.
  3. Radon exists in every home and structure. Testing is the only way to know if the levels in your home are dangerous. The EPA recommends you take action to remediate if levels at or above 4 pCi/L are present in your home. Old home, new construction, slab, basement – radon is not picky. It is a naturally occurring gas that seeps into structures from the rock and soil below through the smallest cracks and entry points.
