Radon

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), radon is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths of non-smokers. Radon can be found in every county within the United States and around the world. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can be found in any building, home or business. Most people have the greatest exposure to radon at home, where they spend most of their time.

Radon is a clear, odorless and tasteless radioactive gas that is known to cause various types of lung cancer.

You can't see it, taste it or smell it; radon is a radioactive gas that can be harmful to humans at elevated levels. The highest levels of radon are usually found indoors where the radon gas is more concentrated .

Symptoms of radon gas related illnesses such as lung cancer do not become prevalent for up to 5 years after the person has been exposed to high levels of radon for an extended period of time.

Radon is a radioactive gas that is naturally produced during the breakdown of uranium.

Radon comes from the breakdown of naturally-occurring radioactive elements (such as uranium and thorium) in soils and rocks.The radon gas moves up through the soil to the surface, of the earth where it enters homes, schools and businesses through cracks and other holes in the foundation. In some cases, radon can enter buildings through well water. Any building can have a radon problem – old or new buildings, well-sealed or drafty buildings, and buildings with or without basements.

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer after cigarette smoking. Commonly only showing signs of lung damage after years of exposure.

The Surgeon General estimates that over 21,000 deaths per year are related to long-term radon gas exposure.

Radon gas decays into radioactive particles that can get trapped in your lungs when you breathe. As they break down further, these particles release small bursts of energy. This can damage lung tissue and lead to lung cancer over the course of your lifetime. Smoking combined with radon is an especially serious health risk. Stop smoking and lower your radon level to reduce your lung cancer risk.

The EPA estimates that over 8 million families in the United States are exposed to high-levels of radon gas.

The average indoor radon level is estimated to be about 1.3 pCi/L, and about 0.4 pCi/L of radon is normally found in the outside air. All amounts of radon are considered a risk, however radon levels below 2 pCi/L are considered livable. High levels of radon occur when there is more than 4 pCi/L of radon in your home or business.

At Pure State we conduct short-term radon testing to measure the amount of radon currently in your home or office.
