Specialists in radon
gas testing and radon
remediation can help mitigate the danger to those living in the home.
Prerequisites for testing include having knowledge of radon
, incentive to test, and the financial means to perform the test and mitigate for radon
A sump was installed and radon
levels have dropped from 1,600 to 200.
For this reason we advise all householders to test their homes for radon
and, if high levels are found, to have their houses fixed.
Normally, emission of radon
from the earth crust into the atmosphere is in infinitesimal amount.
is gaseous in its uncombined form, and it is a natural radioactive, colorless, odorless, and tasteless inert gas.
There can always be some risk, which can be reduced by lowering the radon
level in your home.
In August 2011, following a pilot project conducted in 65 schools located in three priority investigation areas in Quebec, (15) the Ministry of Education mandated the 72 school board administrators of the province to measure radon
in all their schools by the year 2014.
Exposure to radon
causes an estimated 21,000 lung cancer deaths annually.
It is even more difficult to make the case that radon
trends correlate with hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, if one considers the true arrival date of significant high-volume fracking in all but Washington County, Pennsylvania.
While organizations like Workplace Safety North have measured radon
levels in mines in the past, and found ventilation systems adequately dispersed the radon
, Mahoney said to his knowledge no thorough testing has been done.
In order to better understand what radon
is and how radon
can cause lung cancer, you first need to understand what an atom is and what the numbers on the periodic table represents.
