Radon Testing & Mitigation

View All Services

Every 25 minutes a death is caused by radioactive gas in the United States. The EPA’s current standing on radon exposure levels is that it can be no higher than (4.0 pCi/L), whereas the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST) recommends no higher than (2.7 pCi/L) to match the World Health Organization’s levels. According to the AARST, the EPA and HUD associations have taken little to no action in the testing of homes for sale or occupancy. They propose radical changes to ensure that the public is protected from radon exposure to decrease the chances of lung cancer and other ailments. <a href=”http://www.prweb.com/releases/2015/06/prweb12803092.htm” class=”gov”>Read more</a>

Radon is a radioactive, colorless, odorless and tasteless gas that occurs naturally in the environment due to the normal decay of uranium in the soil. Iowa has some of highest radon levels in the United States due to the migration and sediment of glaciers across the landscape that had high concentrations of dense, hard rocks containing uranium, which has radioactive qualities. The continued exposure to radon can be a contributing factor to illness and even death.

Radon is regarded as a major pollutant to indoor air quality. Recent studies by the United States Environmental Protection Agency indicate that radon exposure is the 2nd highest cause of lung cancer causing more than 20,000 deaths per year in the U.S. alone! Radon is very dense, and therefore heavy. It silently lurks and saturates the soil surrounding our homes and creeps in undetected through the smallest cracks or crevices. It’s also non-discriminating; it will invade both newly constructed homes as well as older structures. Don’t be discouraged over the virtual unrecognizable existence of this potential threat to your home. With our professional and highly trained technicians, Neighbors is prepared to help you rid your home or business of this unwelcome guest.
