Why should I worry?
Radon is invisible and has no taste or smell, but it may be a problem in your home. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas produced by the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water. Air pressure in your home is lower than pressure in the soil around your home’s foundation. This difference in pressure creates a vacuum, drawing radon into your home through foundation cracks, sewage drains, sump pits and other openings.
There are significant health risks attributed to breathing air containing radon. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. The good news is that testing for radon is relatively quick and easy! Bsafe will send our state licensed radon measurement specialist to your home and place Continuous Radon Monitors in strategic locations to accurately measure the radon levels.
Every day, more and more homebuyers are asking about radon levels before they buy. The best thing to do is test and treat for radon NOW and fix a problem so it won’t complicate the sale of your home. If the test results show elevated levels of radon, Bsafe will deploy our team of licensed Radon Mitigation Contractors to design and install an effective mitigation system. Let Bsafe help you identify and mitigate this invisible threat to your family’s health.
NOTE: If you are building a new home or are a contractor, consider that it is more cost effective to build radon-resistant features into new construction than it is to fix an existing home that has a problem. Bsafe can work with your builder to design and install the proper radon reduction system during the construction of your home.
