Radon is an odorless, radioactive, noble gas found most commonly in homes above bedrock, and also in almost every home in the northeast. The decomposing of granite in the earth causes radon gas. Scientists estimate that approximately 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths occur each year due to radon related exposure. Radon detection is inexpensive and results can be received in 3 – 5 business days. The E.P.A denotes that a 4.0 pCi/L in the home is a high amount and it is strongly recommended that it be mitigated. Considering the deadly effects that radon can have among people, it is very affordable to obtain a radon gas mitigation system for your home. The cost averages from $800 – $2,500, depending on the logistics and size of your home.
