Serious Health Issues may arise from Radon Gas exposure.
Radon Gas toxicity is a serious issue for the residents of Tallmadge who find themselves directly in the middle of the Radon Belt that stretches from New York State 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 Tallmadge are no exception.
Most local homeowners do not know the severity of radon gas toxicity and its cancer-causing properties.
Radon is odorless, tasteless, sightless, 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 significant 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 indoors 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 is a natural process that occurs from the breakdown of thorium and uranium in rock, soil, and water.
The air pressure differences inside your home versus outside cause a vacuum effect 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, getting your Tallmadge home Tested for Radon is still necessary.
Radon can seep through concrete which may make its radioactive properties dangerously high.
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."
