Radon Gas Can Cause Major Health Related Issues
Radon Gas toxicity is a serious issue for residents of the North Olmsted area, located directly in the middle of the Radon Belt. The Belt stretches from New York State all the way to the Great Plains.
Lethal levels of Radon have been found in every Ohio county! Any home in the state could have a Radon problem, and the homeowners in North Olmsted are no exception.
Most local homeowners do not know how severe radon gas toxicity and its cancer-causing properties can be. This has to do with the fact that you cannot see, smell, or taste radon, 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 Ohio climate creates a greater exposure level to radon due to the amount of time we spend indoors during the months of winter.
Radon gas is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer and claims over 20,000 lives per year in the US alone!

Radon Gas production and concentration is a natural process that occurs from the breakdown of thorium and uranium in rock, soil, and water.
Air pressure differences inside your home versus outside cause a vacuum effect known as pressure differentials; this draws radon into your home through foundation cracks and various other openings.
Even if you cannot see cracks in your foundation, getting your North Olmsted home Tested for Radon is necessary.
Radon levels can be dangerously high because of their 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."
Radon testing for a residence is accurate, efficient, and simple! Protocols have been designed to assure increased dependability and accuracy during testing.
An EPA licensed member of our Radon Eliminator team will come to your house to examine the possible intrusion points in your basement or 1st floor if you have a slab floor.

Once we identify your home's unique intrusion points, a member of our team will set up a specialized Radon Testing device that will continuously measure the impact of radon in your home.
After a 48 hour period has transpired, we will come back to collect the measurement results. Once the results are quantified, our Radon Testing and Mitigation Specialist will provide you with a detailed report of their findings that show the hour-by-hour peaks and valleys in your home's radon gas levels and what you can do next 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.
