Radon is not something to take lightly. It is a radioactive gas that is colorless, odorless, and essentially undetectable. Especially considering what radon gas can do to you.  Second to only smoking, radon gas is the leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, with 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths attributed to radon every year.  The gas is common, we come into contact with it daily outside, in our homes, and even in our water.  However, it is estimated one in fifteen homes has a radon problem, which can lead to overexposure.

What is it?

What is radon gas? Simply, it is a naturally occurring radioactive element that comes from the ground.  The decay of radioactive elements such as Uranium, Thorium, and Radium cause release of the gas particles in the soil.  Depending on a certain area’s geology, the gas can seep into ground water and is released when the water is used.  The gas can get into your home through cracks or holes in basement foundations or even where utilities enter and exit your home.

Radon and Your Home

Once the gas enters the home, it will continue to rise and dissipate into the air. Due to the advances in home construction, once radon enters the home it is most likely trapped inside of it. The EPA has designated most of northern Georgia as a radon hot spot.  Meaning homes in this area are much more likely to have radon problems.  It is estimated one in five homes in Atlanta has a serious radon problem.  Again, radon is an odorless colorless, completely undetectable gas to normal human senses. The only way to determine your radon level is to have a professional conduct a radon test.

Testing for Radon

Testing for this toxic gas is the only way to know for sure what kind of radon level is in your home.  The procedure is simple enough, a professional comes in and determines the best placement for the testing equipment, usually the lowest possible floor of the dwelling. A specialized canister is placed to record radon levels for anywhere between 48 hours to 90 days.  After the canister is picked up, the professional will analyze the sample and alert you of the results.

Radon gas is measured in Picocuries per liter (pCi/l), and the EPA has set the recommended action level for radon gas at 4.0 pCi/l.  The World Health Organization has set their recommended action level at 2.7 pCi/l. But what does this mean? Why the difference in numbers? Well there is no safe level of Radon gas, at all.  To put things in perspective, for someone the lived in a home with a concentration of 4.0 pCi/l, they would have received the radiation equivalent of someone who had 100 x-rays taken in one year.  In fact, someone living in a concentration of 1.0 pCi/l, is doing the equivalent of smoking 2.5 cigarettes a day for a year, worth of damage to their lungs.

Radon gas is not a simple homeowner’s headache; it is a serious issue that needs to be dealt with.  The EPA suggests if you live in a radon hot-spot, such as Atlanta, Georgia. That it is in your best interest to conduct Radon testing at least once per year.  Again, there is no safe level of radon in your home, the first step in protecting your family is to conduct Radon Testing.
