You may have heard the term radon gas before and may not really be clear on what it means but there is definitely a reason why it has such a negative connotation. Natural gas contains radon. Exposure to radon increases the risk of developing lung cancer, and many health care agencies recommend testing radon levels in homes. Detecting radon levels is not easy without a professional radon test from professional radon testing and radon removal companies like Mold Assessment Services. With an indoor radon test, our quality radon mitigation contractors can test radon levels and create a plan for radon remediation and radon mitigation in your home or business if indoor radon concentrations are found. A home radon test is imperative for your family and employees to stay as healthy as possible and restore indoor air quality, and Mold Assessment Services is the radon testing company for you.
- Radon Testing
If you have discovered that there are high radon concentrations in your home or business, you may be wondering who you turn to for a solution. At Randon Gas, we offer radon abatement solutions to help protect your family and employees from the risks of exposure to this carcinogenic gas. Trained technicians will seal off airborne pathways for basement radon and perform other environmentally friendly services as needed. Radon testing in water and other professional radon testing is used to determine if you are at risk for radon exposure. Symptoms from radon gas exposure include coughing and wheezing, hoarseness, and loss of appetite. More serious symptoms from radon gas exposure include chest pain, coughing up blood, and shortness of breath. One of the most severe health problems caused by radon exposure is lung cancer, and this is why it is so imperative that you hire a professional company like Mold Assessment Services so you do not have to worry about the risk of lung cancer. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, second to cigarette smoking, resulting in an estimated 20,000 lung cancer deaths per year.
- Where Does Radon Come From?
Radon gas is naturally occurring in water, soil, and rocks, and is formed when uranium breaks down. The problem occurs when radon gas seeps into your home or business. This necessitates indoor radon remediation, as it can cause serious health problems. There are several ways radon gas enters a building:
- Through drains
- Through sump pumps
- Via cracks in the foundation footer
- From cracks in the walls
- From anywhere in the foundation
A professional company like Mold Assessment Services brings their radon test equipment to your Miami FL home or business so that you can seek a professional opinion and remedy if high radon levels are found in your property. Their support and expertise will lead to the proper radon remediation to reduce Florida radon or eliminate the amount of radon levels and keep your family and employees safe.
- Steps for Radon Mitigation
If a radon test has determined that there are dangerous levels of radon or radon concentrations in your home or business, you will need indoor radon gas removal and radon mitigation services, and Florida radon mitigation contractors will be called in for radon abatement. The first step that radon mitigation companies like Mold Assessment Services take will be to access the ventilation in your Miami FL home or business. Radon removal companies will also work to pressurize your house with fans, creating a vacuum so that radon gas cannot enter your home. Depressurizing the house is another job for radon mitigation contractors, as they remove the radon gas so that your home can be sealed. After they complete the radon mitigation, Mold Assessment Services will test again for radon levels and make sure the problem has been solved.
