Are you concerned about your health?
If you haven't had your Ashland home tested for radon, you might be hurting your health without even knowing it!
So what can you do about Radon?
Radon Gas Can Cause Serious Health Issues
Radon gas toxicity is a serious issue for residents of the Buckeye State. This is due to Ohio finding itself directly in the middle of the Radon Belt, stretching from New York State to the Great Plains.
There have been lethal levels of Radon found in every Ohio county!
Any home in the state could have a Radon problem, and the homeowners of Ashland are no exception.
Unfortunately, many local homeowners do not know about the dangers of radon gas toxicity and its cancer-causing properties.
Radon cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted, and proper education is seriously lacking. According to the Ohio Department of Health, one in two Ohio homes has Radon levels that pose a large cancer risk over numerous years of exposure.
Whether the house is old or new, our climate here in Ohio creates a greater exposure level to radon gas due to the amount of time spent indoors during the winter months.

Radon Gas production and concentration is a naturally occurring process that consists of the breakdown of thorium and uranium in rock, soil, and water.
The air pressure differences inside your home versus outside cause a vacuum effect, known as pressure differentials, drawing radon into your home through foundation cracks and various other openings.
Even if you cannot see cracks in your foundation, it is still necessary to get your home tested for Radon.
Radon can reach dangerous levels due to its radioactive properties that enable the gas to seep through concrete. The EPA states clearly:
"Any Radon exposure creates an increased probability of lung cancer. The lower the radon level in your home, the lower your family's risk of lung cancer."
Radon testing is simple, accurate, and efficient! The protocols have been designed to assure increased accuracy and dependability during the testing process.
An EPA licensed specialist from the Radon Eliminator team will come to your home to examine the possible intrusion points in your basement or 1st floor if you have a slab floor.
These intrusion points come in a variety of different ways:
Once we identify your home's unique intrusion points, one of our team members will set up a specialized Radon Testing device that will continuously measure the impact of radon in your home.
After a 52-72 hour period has elapsed, we will come back to collect the results. Once the results are quantified, our Radon Testing and Mitigation Specialist will provide you a detailed report of their findings that shows the hour-by-hour peaks and valleys in your home's radon gas levels and what you can do next to Mitigate any potential problem.
Radon Testing in the US is measured in PicoCuries per Liter; The EPA recommends that action is taken on any home recording radon levels between 2-4pCi/L and above.
The World Health Organization recommends that action is taken on any home producing radon levels at or above 2.7 pCi/L.
Once your test is finished, a Radon Eliminator Testing and Mitigation Specialist will explain the determined findings in your home and discuss possible mitigation procedures and costs if needed.
There are roughly 7,700 new lung cancer cases each year occurring in Ohio alone. Radon is believed to cause at least 900 of them.
Licensed testing by Radon Eliminator will dramatically reduce the life-threatening Lung Cancer influence of radon in your home.
