Radon systems typically start in the crawl space or basement and force the gas out of the home.
Radon is estimated to cause many thousands of deaths each year. That's because when you breathe air containing radon, you can get lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United Statestoday. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.
Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S. It can get into any type of building - homes, offices, and schools - and result in a high indoor radon level. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time.
Basement Systems of New York provides radon test kits and if concentrations are above the recommended levels, we can customize a radon mitigation system to fix the problem. With input from you, a mitigation system can be designed and installed to effectively bring home radon gas down to a safe level.
