Will Sealing My Basement Floor Help Lower Radon Levels?

By Radon Eliminator Staff on Jun 24, 2020 10:30:00 AM

If you know a little bit about radon, you know that it can get into your home through cracks in the foundation of your home.


Because of that, we are often asked if coating basement floors can help mitigate radon.


Many people who ask this question aren't sure if they have a radon problem or not, they just want to get ahead of it if they do.


Our first recommendation is to test your home for radon to see if you have elevated levels.


If you do have elevated levels, you should install a radon mitigation system with a trusted company like Radon Eliminator.


But, does an epoxy coating on your basement floor help in the fight against elevated levels of radon?


In the article below, we will talk about epoxy coatings and other floor sealing systems and their impact on radon transmission into your home.

Did you know that lung cancer is the second most common type of cancer in adults in the United States? 


It is also the leading cause of death from cancer.


Treatment for lung cancer is much more effective when the disease is caught in its earlier stages. 


Unfortunately, though, most people with lung cancer do not experience symptoms until the disease has spread.


Some people do experience subtle symptoms of early-stage lung cancer, but these symptoms more often stem from other health issues or factors such as smoking.


Most people know that smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths in the United States.


Many people have no idea that the second leading cause of lung cancer is due to exposure to radon gas. 


Long term exposure to elevated levels of radon gas in your home will put you and your family at risk for lung cancer.


In the article below, we describe early symptoms of lung cancer, when to see a doctor, and testing your home for radon.
