Your home needs protected from all types of outside threats. Harsh weather, basement flooding, and gradual decay all threaten your home on a regular basis. If you own your home, you know the importance of safeguarding your home from the outside world. But there’s another threat to you home that needs addressed.
What is Radon?
Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas that is found in many homes in the United States and Canada. The gas is the result of decay of uranium in the soil, which makes its way into your home through your basement, with devastating results.

How Dangerous is It?
Radon is a confirmed carcinogen and is responsible for 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year, making it the second leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking. Smokers with elevated levels in their homes have an even greater chance of getting lung cancer.
Protect Your Home
To protect your home against this threat, you first need to test your home’s levels. Buy a home testing kit at your local home improvement stores and completely follow the instructions. These tests are inexpensive and can help you avoid health problems, which will be much worse for you and your wallet in the long run.
If you find elevated levels in your home, take steps immediately to address it. Mitigation systems use fans to vent Radon gas out of your home, but these systems only work to divert it, not prevent it.
