What is Radon Mitigation and the top 4 Reasons to have an Inspection?
Radon testing and mitigation is a process of reducing the amount of radon gas in a building or home. Radon is a naturally occurring gas that can be found in soil, rocks, and water. It is a colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that can cause health problems if it builds up in the indoor air. Mitigation works by sealing cracks and gaps in the foundation and walls of a structure, providing an airtight barrier to stop radon from entering the building. It can also involve installing a vent or fan to draw radon from beneath the home or building and out of the air. Radon mitigation is important because it can reduce the health risks associated with long-term exposure to radon gas.
1. Radon is a known carcinogen, and the EPA identifies Cincinnati as a high-risk area for radon exposure. Getting a Radon Inspection can help you to identify and mitigate any levels of radon in your home.
2. Radon can enter your home through its foundation, and if it is present in high concentrations, it can pose a serious health risk to you and your family. A Radon Inspection can help to detect and eliminate any high levels of radon in your home.
3. Radon is odorless and colorless, so you can’t detect it without the help of a Radon Inspection.
4. Radon can cause serious health effects, including lung cancer, if it is present in high concentrations in your home.
