National Radon Action Month

Marketing Department

January is National Radon Action Month.  Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can build up to dangerous levels inside any home. This includes new and old homes, well sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without a basement. Radon gas is odorless and invisible and the only way to know if your home has a radon problem is to test for it.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), an individual who is exposed to radon can develop lung cancer, and it is estimated that radon causes about 21,000 deaths every year, which is why the National Radon Action Plan was developed.  The National Radon Action Plan essentially outlines a plan to help mitigate the exposure to radon by encouraging testing in homes and other buildings.  To learn more about the National Radon Action Plan, click here. To find out how August Mack can help, visit our website here!
