Radon gas presents unique challenges.
Indoor Radon Gas toxicity is a serious issue for the Buckeye State, which finds itself directly in the middle of the Radon Belt. In fact, elevated levels of Radon have been found in every Ohio county! Any home in the state could have a Radon problem, and Brecksville homeowners are no exception.
Sadly, most local homeowners don't know about the severity of radon gas poisoning and its cancer-causing qualities because radon is odorless, colorless, and proper education is sorely lacking.
According to the Ohio Department of Health, one in two Ohio homes has Radon levels that can pose a large cancer risk over several years of exposure.
Whether the house is old or newly constructed, our local climate creates a higher exposure level to radon gas due to the amount of time we spend indoors.
Radon has become the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer and claims over 20,000 lives per year in the US alone! Get a Discounted Radon Test to determine your exposure level. For more information, please click here.
Radon enters your house in many ways.
Radon gas formation and concentration is a natural process that occurs from the breakdown of thorium and uranium in soil, rock, and water. The air pressure differences inside your home versus outside create a vacuum effect known as pressure differentials, drawing radon up through foundation cracks and other openings directly into your home. Even if you cannot visibly see cracks in your basement foundation, it is still necessary to get your home tested for Radon. Radon levels can be dangerously high because their radioactive properties allow the gas to penetrate the concrete. The EPA states it plainly, "Any radon exposure creates a higher risk of lung cancer. The lower the radon level in your home, the lower your family's risk of lung cancer."
Radon Testing performed by a Licensed Professional.
Radon testing is simple and effective! An EPA, certified and licensed member of the Radon Eliminator team, will come to your house and investigate the 7 possible intrusion points in your basement or 1st floor if you have a slab floor. These 7 intrusion points can come in the forms of construction joints, foundation cracks, cavities inside walls, cracks in walls, gaps in suspended floors, crawlspaces, gaps around service pipes, and sump pumps or water supplies. Once we distinguish your home's unique intrusion points, our team member will use a specialized tester to measure the impact of radon on every floor in your home. After a 48-72 hour period, we will come back to gather the measurement results. Once the results are quantified, our Radon Testing and Mitigation Specialist will provide you a complete report of their findings and what you can do next to Mitigate any potential problem.
How are Radon Gas Levels measured?
Radon Testing in the US is measured in PicoCuries per Liter; The EPA recommends that action be taken on any home registering radon levels between 2-4pCi/L and above. The World Health Organization recommends that action be taken on any home producing radon levels at or above 2.7 pCi/L. Once your test is complete, a Radon Eliminator Testing and Mitigation Specialist will go over the determined findings in your home and discuss potential mitigation procedures if needed.
