Radon A Constant Issue To Worry About

Bullville, NY - January 6, 2020

  

Local Business Supports January Radon Action Month

“Basement Systems of New Yorks’s Radon Experts Say, “Test your home. Protect your family.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

January 6, 2020

 

Bullville, New York– Thousands of people in our community could be saved from radon-related lung cancer by testing for it and then, if needed installing a radon mitigation system. Radon is a cancer-causing gas that can seep into homes, businesses, and schools and is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Tom Kelly, Former Director of EPA’s Indoor Environments Division. “We know that radon is a carcinogen. Research confirms that breathing low levels of radon can lead to lung cancer.” (www.epa.gov/radon)

 

To raise awareness of radon, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designated January as Radon Action Month in 1999. Why January? The best time to test is when you have “closed-house conditions”. Closed house conditions are when the windows are closed and less likely to be used, and less traffic in and out of your home.  In addition to raising radon awareness, this month of action is meant to encourage people to get their homes, workspaces, and schools tested for radon.

 

Basement Systems of New York is the local leader in radon. Basement Systems of Newe York’s radon experts can help determine if a building’s radon levels are above the EPAs recommended 4.0 pCi/L, and if so, can install an aesthetically pleasing and affordable radon mitigation system.

 

Radon Action Month is a collaborative effort between the EPA and other national organizations dedicated to lowering radon exposure, like the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST), of which Basement Systems of New York is a member.

 

Owner, Dale Giraudin states that testing and mitigating will help save lives here and all over the United States. “Through our continued work to increase awareness about radon’s dangers, testing homes and mitigating homes, I look forward to the day when we can eliminate lung cancer deaths caused by radon exposure.”
