Radon Gas Can Be The Cause Of Serious Health Issues
Radon Gas toxicity is a serious issue for residents of Chagrin Falls, which find themselves directly in the middle of the Radon Belt, stretching from New York State all the way 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 in Chagrin Falls are no exception. Unfortunately, the majority of local homeowners do not understand the severity of radon gas toxicity and its cancer-causing properties.
Radon Gas 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 continued exposure. Whether the house is old or new, our climate in Ohio creates a greater exposure level to radon gas due to the amount of time we spend inside during the winter months.

Radon Gas production and concentration is a natural process that occurs from the breakdown of uranium and thorium in water, soil, and rock. The air pressure differences inside your home versus outside cause a vacuum effect is 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 Chagrin Falls homes Tested for Radon.
Radon levels may be extremely high due to the radioactive properties that enable it to seep through concrete. The EPA states, "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."
