What problems does radon present?
Radon gas proliferation is a serious issue for Canal Fulton residents. Unfortunately, most local area homeowners don't know about the severity of radon gas poisoning and its cancer-causing properties because it 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 may pose a large cancer risk over many years of exposure.
It doesn't matter if the house is old or newly constructed; our local climate creates a higher exposure level to radon because of the amount of time we spend indoors. For more information, click here.
How does Radon get into your Canal Fulton home?
Radon gas formation is a natural process that occurs from the breakdown of thorium and uranium in soil, rock, and water.
The air pressure inside your home, usually lower than the air pressure outside, causes 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 the cracks in your foundation, it is still necessary to get your home tested. Radon levels can be dangerously high because of radon's unique capacity to permeate concrete.
What does professionally done testing look like?
Radon testing is simple and effective. An EPA-certified 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, gaps around service pipes, and sump pumps or water supplies.
Once we identify your home's unique intrusion points, the team member will use a specialized tester to measure the impact of radon on every floor in your home.
When we have the data, the head team member will provide you a complete report of their findings and what you can do next to mitigate any potential problem.
How is Radon gas measured in a home?
Radon Testing measures 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 registering radon levels at or above 2.7 pCi/L.
Once your test is complete, the Radon Eliminator contractor will go over the determined findings in your home and discuss the potential mitigation procedures if necessary.
Where to go from here?
In Ohio, there are about 7,700 new lung cancer cases each year. Radon is suspected of causing at least 900 of them.
