Radon Awareness Month

Posted Feb 03 2009 1:00am
Why do you care about Radon Awareness Month? Maybe because Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer with estimated deaths per year of 15,000 to 20,000.

Radon is a odorless, colorless, tasteless and naturally occuring radioactive gas. Radon is formed by the breakdown of naturally occurring radium in soil, water and rock. Radon can build up in homes coming through the soil below.

Your home can be tested for Radon and if there is a high level contractors can help to mitigate the problem by a variety of methods.

There is a wonderful website Cancer Survivors Against Radon that can provide far more information.
