Question: My neighbor tested for radon and it came back very low. Should I still test?
Answer: YES, Accuradon has tested properties right next to each other with very similar layouts. We had one measure 1.0 and the other measure 10.3. Anything measuring over 4.0 should be mitigated.
Question: I don’t have a basement, do I need to check for radon?
Answer: YES, you have no idea whether or not you have radon without testing. Accuradon has tested properties without a basement and have had measurements come out to 2 and 3 times over acceptable levels.
Question: WHAT IS RADON?
Answer: Radon Is Cancer-Causing, Radioactive Gas
The U.S. surgeon general, American Lung Association, World Health Organization, and many others have warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer today.
You Can’t see it, smell or taste it, but radon is estimated to cause well over 20,000 deaths each year (that’s more deaths than from Melanoma or drunk driving). When you breath in radon gas over a period of time you can get lung cancer. The more radon you are exposed to, and longer the exposure, the greater the risk of eventually developing lung cancer.
