Why Radon Matters?
Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non smokers and the second leading cause of lung cancer for smokers. Radon is difficult to detect as it is odor less, colorless, and tasteless. The only accurate way to detect Radon is to have a certified test conducted in your home, office, or business.
Should you test for Radon?
According to the EPA, everyone should test for Radon. At Atlanta Radon, we offer testing using state or the art Sun Nuclear continuous monitors. Our monitors are calibrated yearly by a independent lab to ensure accuracy.
Should you Mitigate?
The EPA recommends that everyone should mitigate if the results of the test are 4.0pCi/l or more. So what does 4.0pCi/l mean. Well lets put it in everyday terms. According to Radon Awareness "If you live in a home for 1 year that has exactly 4.0 pCi/L then your radiation exposure is the same as 200 chest x-rays per year."
If you are getting ready to build, a passive system may be all that is needed to prevent your home from future Radon exposure. Most of these systems can be installed economically and can fit into your construction budget. Most builders could install Radon systems for less than $1000 if they took the time to find out what is needed and how to do it right. In addition the mitigation system can be hidden out of site and vented through the roof. We will be happy to meet with you or your builder during your planning/building stage to share what is needed to ensure the air quality of your new home or business. If Radon concerns you, then this is the most economical time to have a Radon reduction system installed. For more information please contact us today.
Other than removing radon, a radon reduction system offers several other key benefits. It removes other earth and soil gases, and it can reduce moisture under your slab or crawl space. The active dampness control that it offers can remove as much as 1200 gallons of water a year. This in return can reduce the need for dehumidification and help lower your heating and cooling cost. This also reduces the chances for harmful molds and mildew to develop with in your home.
