Breathe Easy. Verify the Air Purity in Your Home.
Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive natural gas that you can’t see, smell, or taste and its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family’s health.
According the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the second-leading cause of lung cancer in America, claiming about 20,000 lives annually.
Radon can seep into homes through small spaces and openings, such as cracks, floor drains, sump pump openings, wall/floor joints in basements, pores in walls and concrete and through well water. Some areas in the US have a much higher concentration of radon than others. The EPA estimates that nearly 1 out of every 15 homes in the US has an elevated level of radon.
A simple and inexpensive radon test can be performed by HomeTeam to determine if you have an elevated radon level in your home and if a relatively simple mitigation procedure is in order.
