  • National Radon Action Month

    January 27, 2020

    As January 2020 comes to a close we wanted to remind everyone that it is National Radon Action Month. Radon is a naturally occurring, tasteless, odorless gas which comes from the breakdown of uranium. It can build up to dangerous levels inside homes, schools and other buildings. According to the EPA, Radon is the biggest cause of lung cancer in non-smokers and is estimated to cause about 21,000 lung cancer deaths in the USA each year.

    Radon testing can be done by radon professionals or by DIY test kits. For Georgia residents a DIY kit can be ordered from UGA. Through the end of January they are offering a -$5 with promo code NRAMA2020.

    Radon mitigation should be done by a professional and can bring the levels of radon to safe levels effectively.
