CT Radon Testing

Radon is an odorless, colorless radioactive gas that enters the home via any cracks, gaps, and openings in your  basement, concrete slab, or crawlspace. When a home has a well radon can also enter through well water. Our daily water usage ( such as bathing and washing dishes) can separate the radon from the water and allow it to enter our breathing air. Read the radon facts below to find out about this serious health risk. 

Radon Facts

 

  • Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Smoking is the number one cause.
     

  • If you smoke and your home has elevated radon levels your lung cancer risk increases.
     

  • More than 21,000 deaths annually are attributed to radon. Out of these about 2,900 occur among people who have never smoked. 
     

  • Radon can be found in new and old homes, well sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without a basement.
     

  • According to the EPA nearly one out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level (4 pCi/L or more). Homes with high levels of radon have been found in every state. In fact, radon levels can vary greatly from home to home - even levels in the home next door to yours can be very different.
