●Radon is a colorless, tasteless, odorless, and carcinogenic radioactive gas. Since you cannot see, smell or taste radon, it may very well be a hidden danger in your home. The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, you’re at high risk for developing lung cancer. If you do not smoke, and you have actionable levels of radon; you are still at risk for developing radon induced lung cancer. It does not discriminate. Everyone is affected by exposure.
~Non-smokers who live in a home with radon exposer have a risk of 7 out of 1000 getting lung cancer.
~Smokers who live in a home with radon exposure increase their risk to 61 out of 1000 getting lung cancer.
Some scientific studies of radon exposure indicate that children may be more sensitive to radon. This may be due to their higher respiration rate and their rapidly dividing cells, which may be more vulnerable to radiation damage.
●Radon is also the heaviest known gas. It is nine times denser than air. Because it is a single atom gas (unlike oxygen, O2, which is comprised of two atoms) it easily penetrates many common materials like paper, leather, low-density plastic (like plastic bags, etc.) most paints, and building materials like gypsum board (sheetrock), concrete block, mortar, sheathing paper (tar paper), wood paneling, and most insulations. Atmospheric releases of radon-222 (one of the most common forms of radon elements found) results in the formation of decay products that are radioisotopes of heavy metals (polonium, lead, bismuth) and rapidly attach to other airborne materials such as dust and other materials facilitating inhalation.
●Radon causes roughly 21,000 deaths per year in America.
●It is estimated that 50% of homes in Colorado are above actionable level.
●The EPA determines actionable level at 4 pci/L In Real Estate transactions it is now mandatory to disclose any known radon results from testing, and mitigation can be easily worked into Health and Safety due to the known hazards, and that those results are required to be disclosed in any future deal.
As radon professionals at Metro Radon our goal is to mitigate homes to below what the World Health Organization goes by for Actionable Levels for living indoors (2.7 pCi/L and under), not just passing a test at 3.9 pCi/L. We always hope for a zero, however some situations make that impossible. Different make ups of buildings, soil, and limitations on restrictions. A good system of reference to put things in perspective is the table below...
•4 pCi/L = 200 chest x-rays per year or smoking 8 cigarettes per day.
•8 pCi?L = 400 chest x-rays per year or 16 cigarettes per day.
•20 pCi/L = 1000 chest x-rays per year or 40 cigarettes per day.
The best news would be that your home is not one that needs mitigation. (But, you probably wouldn't be here if you didn't think you needed us, so, let's talk mitigation!) First, if you haven't tested your home; get a test. Use a Certified Measurement Professional, so you know the testing is done appropriately and under the right situations to get the most accurate results. We are happy to refer you to a third party company so you can have your testing done by an impartial company to assuage any doubt. If you already know your results are high; or If your levels come back high when we initiate testing, we pair these reports with our other pre diagnostic tools to ensure we are mitigating your home in the most efficient, and effective manner possible. The best way to mitigate your home can only be assessed and addressed through a phone call, and if necessary a walk through of the property to determine a plan. Call now, and schedule your free consultation and quote! Take the step in making your home's air clean and safe for you and your family!
