CHATTANOOGA RADON TESTING

What is radon?

Radon is a naturally occurring gaseous radioactive element. It is an invisible, odorless and tasteless, it occurs from the radioactive decay of uranium. Radon is naturally occurring and present throughout the environment at very low levels. However when high levels are present, people are at a higher risk for lung cancer.

Radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States – second only to smoking. For nonsmokers radon is the No. 1 cause of lung cancer. Radon gas decays into radioactive particles (polonium) that can get trapped in your lungs when you breathe. As they break down, alpha particles damage lung tissue and can lead to lung cancer over the course of time.

Your chances of getting lung cancer from radon depend mostly on:
1. How much radon is in your home
2. The amount of time you spend in your home
3. Whether you are a smoker or have ever smoked.

What is an acceptable level of radon gas?

Radon Act 51 passed by Congress set the natural outdoor level of radon gas (0.4 pCi/L) as the target radon level for indoor radon levels. Unfortunately two-thirds of all homes exceed this level. The US EPA was tasked with setting practical guidelines and recommendations for the nation. To this end, the US EPA has set an action level of 4 pCi/L. At or above this level of radon, the EPA recommends you take corrective measures to reduce your exposure to radon gas.
