Risks of Radon

More Information AboutThe Risks of Radon

 

 

The EPA plans to furnish radon information, promote testing, increase awareness, and give to States technical and financial assistance.  The Director of the EPA Center for Radon and Air toxics (within the Indoor Environments Division) called the 2012 goal “very aggressive,” as it represents a tripling of the current number of mitigations and doubling current levels of new homes built with RRNC.  EPA estimated, based on risk assessments, that:

  • The estimated number of homes with radon-reducing features increased from 153,598 during 2000 to 193,996 during 2005.
  • The estimated number of lives saved from additional homes having radon reducing features increased from 369 during 2000 to 577 during 2005.
  • The projected number of lives saved from additional homes having radon-reducing features will increase from 645 during 2006 to 1,250 during 2012

Radon Mitigation is simply removing the radon from your home or office. This can be achieved through many different ways. For homes on a basement or sub-slab the most reliable being a sub-slab depressurization system. If your home is on a crawl space then you would want a sub-membrane depressurization system. Below you will find a small guide to how Iowa Radon Testing and Mitigation Services goes about installing a Radon Mitigation System.

 

Should You Mitigate?

 

The EPA recommends that everyone should mitigate if the results of the test are 4.0pCi/l or more. So what does 4.0pCi/l mean. Well lets put it in everyday terms. According to Radon Awareness "If you live in a home for 1 year that has exactly 4.0 pCi/L then your radiation exposure is the same as 200 chest x-rays per year."
