Lafayette - Here’s the Easy & Cost Effective Way to Make Sure Your Family is Safe from Radon-Related Health Risks…
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that can permeate the air of any home or other building. It is a by-product of the natural breakdown of uranium in groundwater, rock, and soil, which means that this gas is radioactive. Radon can be found anywhere in the United States, but it is especially common in uranium-rich areas like the state of Indiana.
Just because you can’t see or smell radon gas doesn’t mean that it is harmless.
The presence of radon gas in your Lafayette area home can present an elevated risk of lung cancer. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), high indoor radon levels contribute to about 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year.
A pair of studies, one conducted in Europe and the other in North America, confirm the link between radon and lung cancer. Tom Kelly, former EPA Indoor Environments Division Director, states that “[…] breathing low levels of radon can lead to lung cancer.”
The good news, though, is that it’s easy and cost-effective to minimize radon-related health risks for you and your family.

The First Step to Peace of Mind is Having your Home Tested for Radon.
But it requires specialized, highly sensitive detection equipment. You can save time and guesswork by having our radon mitigation professionals supply and set up the testing equipment in your home.
Our radon professionals will know where and how to set up the testing equipment for the most accurate results, and will take care of interpreting the results so you can make an informed decision about purchasing radon mitigation services.
In most cases, our professional will set up the testing equipment and leave it for 48 hours to ensure an accurate test. At the end of the 48-hour period, the professional will return to collect the equipment, generate results, and recommend a course of action if your home’s radon levels are above safe levels.
Radon mitigation is simple and cost-effective.
If your Lafayette home radon test reveals unsafe radon levels in your home, there’s no need to worry about drastic or extreme measures. In many cases, your mitigation professional can install specialized equipment in your home to effectively reduce radon levels by up to 99%.
If there is a high level of radon in your property’s soil, a process called soil suction can draw out and vent the radon before it can enter your home.
Our mitigation specialist will conduct a thorough inspection and/or diagnostic tests to determine the most appropriate and cost-effective approach to making your home’s air safe to breathe.
One phone call can help protect you and your family from radon-related health issues.
