What effect does radon have on the human body?
Ignorance is not bliss, especially when it comes to dealing with radon gas problems. The more you know, the quicker you can respond.
That is why our licensed Akron Radon Testing Company was formed to educate residents of its danger and the exact steps you can take today to get the problem solved.
Unfortunately, so many people don't know about Radon's dangers because the gas is colorless, odorless, and education is greatly lacking.
In fact, it is one of the greatest home health risks in the US and Ohio in particular, which contains one of the highest radon gas concentration levels in the country.
With that said, the easiest way to target an enemy (Radon) is to understand where it comes from and how it gets into your home.
Let's figure it out together!
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas produced by uranium breakdown in soil, rock, and water.
Air pressure inside your home is usually lower than the air pressure outside; this causes a vacuum effect known as pressure differentials, drawing radon in through foundation cracks and other openings.
Even if you don’t have visible cracks in your foundation, it is important to get your home tested. You could still have high radon levels because radon will permeate concrete.

Radon testing is simple and effective!
A Radon Eliminator contractor will come out to your home and begin to investigate the 7 possible intrusion points throughout your basement.
These 7 intrusion points can come in the forms of foundation cracks, construction joints, cracks in walls, gaps in suspended floors, gaps around service pipes, cavities inside walls, and sump pumps or water supplies.
Once these points are identified, the contractor will deploy a special device to test radon's impact on all floors in your home. Once samples are taken and quantified, the contractor will provide a report of their findings.
Radon Testing is measured in PicoCuries per Liter. The World Health Organization recommends that action be taken on any home registering radon levels at or above 2.7 pCi/L.
The EPA recommends that action must be taken on any home registering radon levels between 2-4pCi/L and above.
Once your test is complete, the Radon Eliminator contractor will go over the report of the findings with you.
