Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can lead to a host of issues, including lung cancer. While an estimated 1 in 15 homes in the US are effected by elevated radon levels, this gas can not be seen or smelled, leaving most homeowners unaware of this potentially lethal problem. As a result, it is estimated that radon contributes to upwards of 21,000 deaths. At present, professional testing is the only way to determine your family's level of exposure.
To protect your home and family, the first-and most critical-step is to obtain professional testing by a Safe At Home agent to determine if your home has an issue. In many cases, this test will come back below the EPA's reccomended action level, but this information is critical to providing the peace of mind needed to move forward with purchasing a house or simply to ensure your family is not at risk. In cases where a Radon issue is detected, Safe At Home will provide free consultation regarding mitigation options, including a referral to a certified Radon mitigation professional.
While many claim to perform these services, it is critical that you ensure the radon testing and treatment providers you do business with are nationally certified and appropriately insured. Hiring an insured, nationally certified NRPP (National Radon Proficiency Program) provider you are assuring youself a prompt, effortless, affordable experience while protecting your family during the entire Radon testing process.
