You may have heard the term “radon” before, but do you really know what it is and why it poses a threat to your home and family? Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that is created from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil and rock. Radon can become trapped and build up to dangerous levels, leading to lung cancer and other health problems.
The most significant benefit of installing a radon mitigation system is it significantly reduces your risk of developing lung cancer. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second-leading cause of lung cancer overall.
If you ever plan to sell your home, having a radon mitigation system installed can increase your home’s resale value. Prospective buyers always look for a home that is safe and healthy for them and their families.
Installing a radon mitigation system is a cost-effective solution to a potentially life-threatening problem. Additionally, many radon mitigation systems require minimal maintenance, so once it’s installed, you won’t have to worry about it for many years to come.
Radon mitigation systems can be customized to fit your home’s specific needs. A professional can install a mitigation system in as little as a few hours, depending on the complexity of the system and the size of your home.
