Radon Levels Are Elevated In The Winter
Radon Gas is an odorless, colorless radioactive gas that is naturally produced by the decay of radioactive elements, such as thorium and uranium. Radon is released into the air by soil and rocks, and it is very prevalent in areas with large amounts of granite. When Radon breaks down, it attaches to dust and other airborne particles that can be absorbed through our lungs. This radioactive element damages the DNA inside our body's cells.
Radon Gas moves naturally through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. When Radon Gas enter your home, it becomes trapped and starts to accumulate if not properly ventilated.
Radon Gas levels are elevated during the colder months in Ohio. This has to do with our homes not being adequately ventilated. Our windows and doors are shut for several months during the cold season, trapping the Radon in our homes and letting it build up to dangerous levels. Winter is the perfect time to have your home tested for radon. If your levels come back elevated, you should have a Mitigation System installed immediately to suck the Radon out of your home.
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, and risk of contracting this terrible disease increases exponentially with higher long-term average radon levels. According to the EPA, Radon Removal can eliminate up to 99 percent of radon from your home.
