If your test concludes that you have elevated levels of radon in your home, and you don’t install a radon mitigation system, there is a possibility that over time, you or your family may develop lung cancer. Studies have shown that children are reported to have greater risk than adults for certain types of cancer resulting from radiation.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to completely eliminate radon from any home. Even the outdoor air that we breathe has a certain level of radon. However, installing a radon mitigation system will greatly reduce the amount of radon that you and your family are exposed to. If you own a home or are buying, selling, or building your home, it is strongly recommended that you check your radon levels and install a system dependent on your testing results.
