Radon Gas Mitigation
The most effective method for reducing radon gas in your home to an acceptable level is through sub-slab depressurization. A radon mitigation professional installs this system that reduces the pressure under the foundation of your home and vents the radon gases to outdoor air.
Pro Home Radon Measurements does not provide radon mitigation system installation. Please refer to this Illinois webite: http://iema.illinois.gov/iema/radon/RadonCounty_Frames.asp for a list of licensed mitigation professionals in your area.
Radon is the #1 cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon gas decays into radioactive particles that can get trapped in your lungs when you breathe. As they break down further, these particles release small bursts of energy. This can damage your lung tissue and lead to lung cancer over the course of your lifetime. Radon is estimated to cause between 15,000 and 22,000 lung cancer deaths each year. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.
An Introduction to Radon
Radon is a naturally occuring radioactive gas that you can't see, taste, or smell. It is produced by the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water. Radon is measured in picocurries per liter (pCi/L) of air. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency Department of Nuclear Safety (IEMA-DNS) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) recommends that action be taken to reduce radon levels if the average is 4.0 pCi/L or higher.
