RADON GAS IN THE HOME: AN INVISIBLE KILLER

Radon gas is real, but sometimes it is hard to take it seriously because you can’t see it, smell it or taste it.  It’s important to protect your family from the life-threatening effects of radon gas in your home and if you have a private water system. Radon is known to be a carcinogenic gas.  It’s the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US and prolonged exposure to high levels drastically increases the chances of lung cancer.

The short term testing done for real estate is just a glimpse of exposure to radon for a short period of time, as radon fluctuates minute by minute and day by day.  Winter tends to have higher readings than summer.

In the past several years, placing continuous radon monitors has become more popular.  It is a machine that will chart the radon levels over a 2 to 3 day period of time. 

Continuous radon monitor testing is more expensive but gives you almost immediate results.  While it gives you the average over a period of time, it will also show you the peaks and valleys and give a slightly better idea of what is going on with the radon gas of your home.

With Bye Radon you can stay always safe and not only when you measure with short-term kits!
