PRLog - Oct. 1, 2012 - PEORIA, Ariz. -- With fall officially arriving last month, many parts of the country are experiencing cool days and even cooler nights. This autumn weather often causes people to begin shutting windows and firing up the HVAC system to bring warmth and comfort to their homes.

As people begin to keep doors and windows shut, any indoor air pollutants may begin to buildup. One of these pollutants is a cancer causing radioactive gas known as radon. It may be found in rock formations and groundwater beneath buildings or even in certain building materials. The gas typically moves up through the soil and penetrates buildings through cracks, sumps and other holes in the building slab or foundation.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes below the third floor for radon. Bruce Jacobs, CIH, President of IAQ Index, a leading maker of indoor air quality (IAQ) home test kits wants to help prevent needless exposure to deadly radon. He stated, “I believe that radon is a real risk for families and is not receiving the attention that it should from many homeowners. To encourage more testing, IAQ Index is now offering a free radon test and evaluation when purchasing the IAQ Index Basic Kit. The IAQ Index Basic Kit includes the evaluation of potentially harmful levels of several other pollutants commonly found in homes. These include CO, CO2, VOCs, and mold.”
The free radon test kit offer is a $50 value and this limited time offer is for the months of October and November. To take advantage of this special opportunity, order the IAQ Index Basic Kit at http://www.IAQIndex.com and receive a free radon test kit.

About IAQ Index
IAQ Index was developed by a Certified Industrial Hygienist with decades of experience dealing with indoor air quality issues. IAQ Index was developed as a health-based, easy-to-understand, air quality index that is calculated from data generated for various parameters commonly measured during IAQ surveys. The approach is similar to the EPA’s Air Quality Index that has been used historically to communicate the risks posed by common pollutants in the ambient air.
