St Paul Inspection Company Supports National Radon Action Month with Important Information on Radon
AmeriSpec Home Inspection Service offers information about radon and its risks.
By: AmeriSpec Home Inspection Service
National Radon Action Month is extremely important especially here in Minnesota. Radon is a serious public health concern in our state. The average radon level in Minnesota is more than three times higher than the U.S. radon level. This is due to geology and how our homes are operated. Minnesota homes are also closed up most of the year, which can result in higher levels of radon. In Minnesota, more than two in five homes have radon levels that pose a significant health risk.
Radon has no odor or taste, but it could be present at a dangerous level in area homes. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among nonsmokers in America and claims the lives of about 21,000 Americans each year. In fact, the EPA and the U.S. Surgeon General urge all Americans to protect their health by testing their homes, schools and other buildings for radon.
Exposure to radon is a preventable health risk and testing radon levels can help prevent unnecessary exposure. If a high radon level is detected it's important to take action and work to fix the problem to protect loved ones.
Take Action! Ways Homeowners Can Celebrate National Radon Action Month:
Test. By understanding the radon levels, the need for radon mitigation becomes clear.
Attend a National Radon Action Month event.
Encourage others to learn about radon and test their homes.
Install radon mitigation.
