3Rs Construction Radon in the Earth's Crust

7 reasons you NEED to test your home for radon!

According to the EPA, Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among nonsmokers in America and claims the lives of about 21,000 Americans each year. Radon is a radioactive gas produced when uranium in the soil decays; it can be found all over the United States. Radon gas moves up through the ground into your home through cracks and holes in the foundation, becoming trapped inside.

Winter is a good time to test your home for radon and 3Rs Construction & Remodeling can complete your testing quickly and efficiently. We recommend you test your home every two years here in the Willamette Valley. We’ve also compiled a list of reasons why you should have your home tested today!
