Start the new year off right with home safety in mind by joining us this January in recognizing National Radon Action Month. Radon is a dangerous, noxious gas that people are unable to see, smell, or taste yet is regularly found at dangerous levels within American homes. The exposure to radon gas is the second highest cause of lung cancer fatalities in the United States, claiming nearly 21,000 lives annually. This is a lethal threat and the Radon Testing Service professionals at Radon-Rid urge all residents to join National Radon Action Month.
National Radon Action Month Encourages Awareness: All residents should take part in the following action steps:
- Home radon testing. Testing for radon is easy and inexpensive and should be done whether you rent or own your home. Radon testing can either be done with an easy-to-use home test kit or by calling in a professional and qualified radon testing service or radon remediation contractor for a more thorough property analysis.
- Attend a National Radon Action Month Event. Check your community calendar to see where and when a local event will be held in your area.
- Spread the word. One of the reasons radon is such a threat is that many Americans are unaware about the gas and its risks. Let your friends, family members, and neighbors know about the health risks of radon gas exposure and encourage them to join you in attending any local National Radon Action Month events. If someone you love is unable to afford to purchase a home radon testing kit, do so for them. Everyone deserves the right to be safe and healthy in their own homes.
- Buy a radon-resistant home or invest in radon-resistant materials. Many newer homes are now built with radon-resistant materials. New home buyers should inquire about these or request for provisions to include radon-resistant materials in new home construction. Those with older homes can reduce and even eliminate the risk of radon build-up by installing better ventilation systems and other radon-resistant home equipment. A skilled radon remediation contractor or radon testing service company is adept at recommending the best, most efficient radon mitigating solutions for your home.
