RDS along with CanSar, EPA and Governor Hickenlooper urge all Coloradans to test their homes for Radon, and to have a radon system installed should the results of their testing, be above the EPA’ s action guideline of 4.0 pCi/L (piccocurries per liter of air).
Radon is the leading cause of lung-cancer in non-smokers, and claims more than 20,000 life’s a year. Radon is a natural occurring gas that comes from the breakdown of uranium in the soil. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas. So you can’t see it or smell it like Natural Gas.
When radon enters a home and is trapped, the levels become a health concern, as the gas cannot dissipate as it would naturally outside. When you breath in radon, radon particles can attach themselves to the linings of your lungs and disturb the cells, thus potentially causing lung-cancer. To learn more about radon you can find more information on the EPA’s website at http://www.epa.gov/
