The answer is real simple and real easy. Radon is a killer. Studies have shown that radon is the 1st cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and the 2nd cause of lung cancer in smokers. If you want to reduce your risk of getting lung cancer, get radon testing to determine if your home needs radon mitigation.
The fact is, exposure to the gas called radon, can account for an estimated 21,000 lung cancer deaths per year according to EPA. This information may come as a shock to many Americans, who think that the only proven way to get lung cancer is through smoking.
How do I get radon Testing?
There are many options to find a specialized testing technician. One way is to hire a qualified and trained home inspector. Another way is to find an experienced certified radon professional, who specializes in testing, inspecting and checking for radon in homes. These individuals can also advise on what to do if the gas level comes back high. Oconomowoc area has been known to have areas where higher concentrations of radon gas can be found and has been tested elevated.
What to expect
A professional will place the radon test in a home for about 48 hours. Instructions are given to the occupants of the home to leave the testing undisturbed. Windows and doors must be kept closed 12 hours prior and during the test. All occupying residents must be aware that running any sort of fans or any type of air circulation is not permitted during testing and could fail the radon measurement sampling. Any wood in fireplaces must not be burned during the radon test.
When the radon test is retrieved, it is mailed to a certified laboratory. If a continuous radon monitor was used, the data from the monitor will be uploaded and can be read by technician onsite. A report is later prepared and provided to the party that hired out the testing.
