Thanks Lesley, great information.
What is Radon and should you be concerned?
Even though there has been much published about the fact that Radon is also found in granite counter tops ,
...when we tested the radon in clients kitchens, we haven't shared the hysteria.
EPA states that you should test your home for radon yearly and says that any household with 4 picoCuries or more should have radon remediation, which is simply installing a vent with a fan that allows the radon an escape route to the outside.
The EPA also provides some interesting maps that show you the highest concentration of radon across the country.
I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to live in a house with any more than 2 picoCuries, since the EPA says this...
Some people have theorized that
Dana Reeves, wife of Christopher Reeves, had lung cancer due to her exposures of radon
So radon is definitely something to take seriously.
But remember...there is an easy fix.
New homes are having passive systems included in construction.
The radon test is inexpensive and easy as well!
