    Radon (pronounced ‘rey-don’) is a chemical element with symbol Rn and atomic number 86.  Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, naturally occurring, radioactive gas.  It is formed from the decay of radium and is considered to be a health hazard. . . OK  radon1

     

    Breathing high concentrations of radon can cause lung cancer. Thus, radon is considered a significant contaminant that affects indoor air quality worldwide.

     

    According to the EPA, radon could be the second most frequent cause of lung cancer.  Cigarette smoking is still at the top.  Radon-induced lung cancer the 6th leading cause of cancer death overall, causing 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the United States.

     

    Class Dismissed!

     

    hyperbaric1OK what does this mean to you now that the media has you in a frenzy, the EPA has you wearing a respirator and the CDC wants you sleeping in a air chamber at night.    

     

    It means that you should have your new home tested for Radon along with a home inspection.  It means that you should have your existing home tested yearly.   Yes yearly!   

     

    That’s it.

     

    It’s that simple so take a deep breath and exhale. 

     

    Oh I forgot to tell you that you breathe Radon every day.  It is in the air you breathe now.  It was in the air you breathed yesterday and it will be in the air you breathe tomorrow.  Radon is a problem when trapped inside your home.  High levels of accumulation and exposure increase the probability of lung cancer.  Why risk it? 

     

    You will not be able to escape Radon, but you can remediate it from your home and not allow the accumulation of this gas in your home.  Lowering the levels in your home can costs from $500.00 to $1,500.00.  Testing can cost between $50 and $250.

     

    Call your Real Estate professional and ask about Radon.  Call a licensed home inspector who works with a certifiedadrdu-logo-200 lab and ask the questions.   Or go to the local handyman store and buy a kit yourself.

     

    No matter which way you go you will be glad you did.

     

    Peace of Mind is the Best Advantage!
