Radon gas Toxicity is a Major Health Issue in Ohio.
Radon Gas is a serious issue for most homeowners in the Buckeye State, which finds itself right in the middle of what's been called the "Radon Belt" stretching from the Great Plains clear to Upper New York State. In fact, testing has proven that every Ohio County has homes that have registered lethal levels of Radon!
Any home in the state could potentially have a Radon problem, and the homeowners in Orange are no exception. Unfortunately, most homeowners don't know about radon toxicity exposure and its cancer-causing properties because radon is odorless, invisible, tasteless, and health education is falling behind.
According to the Ohio Department of Health, 50% of Ohio homes have Radon levels that pose a large cancer risk over numerous years of exposure. Whether the house is a century home or newly constructed, Ohio's cool climate creates a greater exposure level to radon gas due to the amount of time we spend indoors during the cold winter months.
Radon gas is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer and claims more than 20,000 lives per year in the US alone!

Radon gas production, concentration, and release into the environment is a natural process resulting from the breakdown of thorium and uranium in our soil.
The air pressure differences inside your home versus outside create a vacuum effect known as pressure differentials, drawing radon gas up into your home through foundation cracks and various other openings.
Even if you cannot visibly see cracks in your foundation, getting your home tested for Radon is still necessary. Radon levels can still be dangerously high because the radioactive properties allow the gas to permeate through concrete.
The EPA has given us a simple equation, "Any Radon exposure increases the probability of developing lung cancer. The lower the radon level in your home, the lower your family's risk of Lung Cancer."
Radon testing for a home residence is accurate and efficient! Our protocols have been designed to assure increased dependability and accuracy during the whole testing period.
An EPA licensed member of the Radon Eliminator team will examine your home for 7 possible Radon Gas intrusion points in your basement or 1st floor if you have a slab floor.
These 7 intrusion points come in the form of cracks in walls, foundation cracks, construction joints, gaps around service pipes, gaps in suspended floors, crawlspaces, cavities inside walls, and sump pumps or water supply sources.
Once we identify your home's unique intrusion points, our team members will set up a specialized Radon Testing device that can continuously monitor the impact of radon in your home. After a 52-72 hour period has elapsed, we will come back to see what your test results show.
After the results are quantified, our Radon Testing and Mitigation Specialist will provide you a thorough report of their findings that will show your home's radon gas levels hour by hour and what you can do to Mitigate any potential problem.
Radon Testing in the US is measured in PicoCuries per Liter, which can accurately show the level of radioactivity within your home; The EPA recommends that a mitigation system be installed in 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 completed, a Radon Eliminator Testing and Mitigation Specialist will explain the determined findings from your home and discuss possible mitigation procedures and the cost of installation.
There are 7,700 new Lung Cancer cases each year occurring in Ohio alone. Radon is estimated to cause at least 900 of these new cases.
Licensed testing by Radon Eliminator will allow you to understand the impact of radon in your home and help reduce the life-threatening Lung Cancer influence.
