Radon Gas May Cause Serious Health Issues
Radon Gas toxicity is a serious issue for residents of Ohio, which is situated directly in the middle of the Radon Belt that stretches from New York State to the Great Plains. Unfortunately, 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 Rocky River are no exception. Many homeowners do not know about the severeness of radon gas toxicity and its cancer-causing properties because it has no smell, taste, or visibility, and proper education about it is 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 brand new, Ohio's climate creates a greater exposure level to radon gas due to the amount of time we spend inside during the winter months.
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 are natural processes that break down thorium and uranium in water, soil, and rock. The 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, it is still essential to have your Rocky River home Tested for Radon.
Radon levels can be extremely high because of their radioactive properties that enable the gas 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 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 findings of Radon Gas in your home and discuss potential mitigation procedures and cost if needed.
There are roughly 7,700 new lung cancer cases each year occurring in Ohio alone. Radon is believed to cause at least 900 of them.
