Radon gas has serious Cancer-Causing Implications for the State of Ohio
Radon Gas proliferation is a major health issue for residents of Ohio. Ohio is directly in the middle of the Radon Belt, which stretches from New York State all the way into the Great Plains.
In fact, dangerous levels of Radon have been found in every Ohio county! Any home in the state could have a Radon problem, and homeowners in Middleburg Heights are not excluded.
Unfortunately, homeowners in this area don't know about the dangers of radon gas toxicity and its cancer-causing properties because radon is odorless, tasteless, invisible, and proper education is seriously lacking.
Radon gas is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer and claims over 20,000 lives per year in the US alone! According to the Ohio Department of Health, one in two Ohio homes has Radon levels that pose a large cancer risk over years of continued exposure. Whether your home is old or newly constructed matters little; Ohio's cold climate creates a greater exposure level to radon gas due to the amount of time we spend inside during the winter months.

Radon gas production, dissemination, and concentration is a natural process occurring from the breakdown of thorium and uranium in our rock, soil, and water.
Air pressure differences inside your home versus outside cause a vacuum effect, known as pressure differentials. These pressure differences draw radon into your home through foundation cracks and various other openings.
Even if cracks are not visible in your foundation, getting your Middleburg Heights home Tested for Radon is still necessary.
Radon levels can still be elevated because their radioactive properties enable the gas to pierce through concrete. The EPA states it plainly, "Any Radon exposure creates an increased probability of contracting lung cancer. The lower the radon level in your home, the lower your family's risk of lung cancer."

PicoCuries per Liter measure radon Testing in the US; The EPA recommends you take action on any home recording radon levels between 2-4pCi/L and above.
The World Health Organization recommends taking action 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 mitigation procedures and the cost of your mitigation, if needed.
