Smokers need to reduce their RADON exposure, too.

Smokers, you can reduce your lung cancer risk, by reducing your radon exposure.  

The combined effect of smoking and high radon levels, greatly increases your risk of lung cancer compared with smoking alone.

NON-SMOKERS:

When exposed to a lifetime of radon at 200 Bq/m3, a NON-SMOKER has a 1% chance of being diagnosed with lung cancer.

When exposed to a lifetime of radon at 800 Bq/m3, a NON-SMOKER has a 5% chance of being diagnosed with lung cancer.

SMOKERS:

When exposed to a lifetime of radon at 200 Bq/m3, a SMOKER has a 12% chance of being diagnosed with lung cancer.

When exposed to a lifetime of radon at 800 Bq/m3, a SMOKER has a 33% chance of being diagnosed with lung cancer.

                        KNOW YOUR RADON LEVEL

Test for Radon

Purchase a radon test, or hire a professional.  

Start a test in your home.

Leave it for 91 days or more.

Return it to a Lab for Analysis.

If your test your home and find high levels - they can be fixed.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Find more information on radon testing here.



A Healthy Home is a mitigated home!            

Effective, Efficient, Necessary - Install a Radon Mitigation System

Radon levels are reduced with radon mitigation.  The most effective method of radon mitigation is using a Active Soil Depressurization (ASD) system.

An ASD system, will reduce radon levels and it also:

  •   reduces humidity levels
  •   reduces other soil gases
  •   reduce the use of a dehumidifier
  •   improves the smell of your home
  •   improves the air quality of your home
