3Rs Construction Provides Radon Testing & Mitigation
It’s a great time for a reminder to test your home for radon and protect your family from potential illness. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that there are over 20,000 deaths in the United States each year to radon exposure. That’s more fatalities than drunk driving, drowning and home fires combined! Excluding smoking, radon is the largest cause of lung cancer today.
What is Radon
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas released into the aquifers and soil from the normal decay of uranium. Harmful gases leach out of the ground and into our homes, carrying RDPs (radioactive particles). These RDPs are easily trapped in the lungs where they damage normal tissue, causing lung cancer. When you breathe air contaminated with radon, your risk of contracting lung cancer increases significantly.
