Dayton, Ohio Radon Test Statistics
Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless, radioactive gas found in 49 of the 50 states in America. Radon results from the natural breakdown of uranium, thorium, and radium in rocks and soil. It may enter your home through the ground or via well water. Per the National Cancer Institute, people who inhale high levels of radon increase their risk of developing lung cancer, and, per the National Academy of Science’s Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation Report, radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates there are more than 21,000 annual deaths related to radon-related lung cancer. Studies have also indicated there may be a correlation between radon exposure and leukemia (results are inconclusive at this time).

Why have a Radon Inspection?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Surgeon General have both recommended that all homes be tested for radon. Testing is the only way to know if your home has elevated levels of radon. The EPA advises radon mitigation if radon levels test above 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L); though, any level of radon may be considered a risk. Radon levels above 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher are recommended by the EPA to be mitigated. Radon is a health concern with an easy solution – radon mitigation.
