Beginning a new year motivates many of us to start something new or take action to make a positive change. Taking steps to improve the health of your home by conducting a simple radon test is an action that will have benefits for you and your whole family. And we’re making it super easy for you by offering FREE radon test kits during the month of January (while supplies last) in honor of Radon Action Month!
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) named January Radon Action Month to raise awareness about the health dangers associated with radon exposure. The U.S. Surgeon General recommends every home be tested for radon. Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among people who do not smoke. The American Lung Association states that radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, resulting in an estimated 21,000 deaths annually. Testing for radon is the first step in protecting you and your family.
Since radon cannot be detected by sight, smell, or taste, a test is required. The EPA recommends testing at least every two years. You can use a simple short-term test kit to determine the presence of radon, however, testing conducted by an industry-certified professional is recommended to ensure the most accurate results. All our Certified Radon Technicians are professionally trained to meet and exceed industry standards. We’ve conducted thousands of tests across the region in homes of all ages and layouts – new and old, basements, slabs, crawl spaces – you name it.
If your home tests above recommended safe levels (4 pCi/L and above), you can reduce radon to a safe level with the installation of a mitigation system to vent the carcinogen out of your home. Not only will this make your home healthier, it will give you peace of mind that your family is safe from the deadly effects of radon.
Now is a great time to take action for your family. Learn more facts about radon and click here to reserve your free test kit from Certified Radon.
