Know the Risks of High Radon Exposure
What is radon?
How does radon get into a home?
I have a brand new house, can I still have elevated radon levels?
Is radon really that serious of an issue?
Yes. Radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked.
The Surgeon General Health Advisory in 2005 says: “Indoor radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It’s important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques.”
Are my children at risk?
What are my chances of getting lung cancer?
How do I know if my radon levels are high?
The only way to know is to test. Even when you have a system, it is recommended by the EPA that you test every 2 years to ensure your system is properly working.
Axium offers NRPP certified radon testing utilizing third-party machines for a better price than our competitor’s. Visit our pricing page or call us at 720-597-7778.
What does a radon mitigation system do?
Do I need both the fan system and the vapor barrier?
Axium suggests that you install both components of the system, though we will do a two-phase install first if you prefer.
