Did you know that two in five homes have radon levels that present a significant health risk? Radon gas is also listed as the #2 cause of lung cancer in the world, second only to cigarettes. There is a two-step process to uncover and protect yourself against this dangerous, invisible gas. Radon testing by a professional using the proper certified equipment to see if you have a Radon problem is the first step followed by radon mitigation to rid your home of this dangerous gas if levels are found to be unsafe. Astar Services offers free, in-home radon testing for homeowners so there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t have your home tested.
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) defines radon as a naturally occurring, uranium-based, radioactive gas. If that description doesn’t send chills down your spine, we’re not sure what will. When this colorless, odorless gas seeps up from the earth into a homeowners foundation, it contaminates the indoor air, making it unsafe. Once this gas in inhaled, especially over a long period of time, the gas produces radioactive particles that can damage the cells that line your lungs, leading to cancer.
There are no safe levels of radon and any amount of radon in your home can carry some level of risk. Since you cannot see or smell radon, professional in-home testing is the only way to guarantee you’re safe from this dangerous gas.
Take advantage of our free in-home radon testing today to accurately check your home’s radon levels using our state-of-the-art radon detection equipment. The process is easy and fast. We place a tester in your home, leave it there for 2 days, and our technician will return to your home to pick it up.
