What is Radon?
Radon is considered to be a Class A carcinogen. That means, studies have shown it is known to cause cancer in humans after prolonged exposure. Many studies have concluded that the effects of radon decay products, specifically prolonged exposure to high levels of radon, can increase the potential of lung cancer. Therefore, home and commercial property owners are concerned about these health risks, as well as the resale value of their property or home. Furthermore, property owners and potential owners alike, want to test for and correct radon concerns. The United States Environmental Protection Agency and Surgeon General recommend that people do not have long-term exposures in excess of 4.0 pico Curies per liter (pCi/L).
