Continuous Radon Monitoring
Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless radioactive gas that occurs naturally in the soil. It is a leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. In the Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee regions, radon is a particular concern due to the geological composition of the area, which can lead to elevated radon levels. Here’s some important information you should be aware of:
- Health Risks: Prolonged exposure to high levels of radon can pose serious health risks. The Surgeon General and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommend that all homes be tested for radon. For more information visit EPA.gov.
- Mitigation: If high radon levels are detected in your home, mitigation systems can be installed to reduce the radon to safe levels.
- Testing Frequency: It is advisable to have your home tested for radon every few years, especially if any changes are made to the property, such as renovations or alterations to the foundation.
