January: National Radon Action Month

Wednesday, January 6th, 2016 by Karissa Spears

The United States Environmental Protection Agency has designated January as National Radon Action Month.

The national campaign is designed to educate individuals on the radon element and the many health issues it may cause. The month is also designated to bring awareness and encourage homeowners to get their homes tested.

Radon is a cancerous radioactive gas that you can't smell, taste or see. The Surgeon General has warned homeowners that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Many scientific findings include:

  • Children are more sensitive to radon

  • If you smoke inside your home, the higher your risk of radon exposure

  • 21,000 lives were effected by lung cancer from non-smokers through radon exposure

AFS can provide you with services from a certified Radon Gas Measurement Specialist, who will perform a Continuous Radon Monitor test in your home. This test is by far the most accurate radon test in the industry and is capable of providing reliable results within 48 hours. The Radon test is completed in three easy steps!
