We strongly recommend a professional 48-hour radon test in this area.
A December article in the Tennessean newspaper said that half the homes in middle Tennessee have a level above the 4.0 action level set by the EPA.
Our testing in the area confirms that approximately one third to half of the homes have an unsafe radon level per the EPA guidelines.
Radon is a radioactive gas that is found in the earth’s rock and soil.
Radon is believed to cause approximately 20,000 to 30,000 deaths a year in the United States.
Radon is invisible, odorless, and can be detected only by measuring levels in your home.
Indoor radon exposure is estimated to be the second leading cause of lung cancer deaths each year in the U.S. Radon problems have been identified in every state.
The EPA estimates that one out of every fifteen homes in the U.S. have indoor radon levels at or above the EPA’s recommended action guideline of four Pico curies per liter of air (pCi/L) on a yearly average.
Levels are much higher here in middle Tennessee.
Today’s technology can reduce radon levels to below 4 pCi/L in most cases, to 2 pCi/L or less.
