When it comes to gaining new skills, I am always eager and genuinely excited. I am of the mind that a any opportunity to learn anything is never wasted time. Whenever I get the chance to pick up some new knowledge, t I am all over it. Last Tuesday, I had spent a significant amount of time learning all about a thing called radon gas. I didn’t know anything about radon gas. I hadn’t realized the potential danger of this colorless, odorless, radioactive gas that has been linked to lung cancer. It’s especially harmful if you are exposed for a long stage of time. It’s some scary stuff, and it is literally found all over the place. Radon is formed in the soil and has been detected pretty much everywhere across the world. Radon becomes dangerous when it manages to penetrate the home. It gets trapped inside and levels can build to dangerous amounts. When the radon is thickly concentrated, the danger of health hazards starts going up. It typically enters the home through imperfections in the foundation. The soil releases the radon gas into the home. Fortunately, there are testing devices available to measure radon levels easily and accurately. Getting rid of it is not all that complex. All that’s necessary, in most cases is to carefully seal up any imperfections in the foundation and air out the room for a day or so. Then test again to ensure safety. In some cases, you might need to invest in a ventilation and fan combination to remove the radon from the home. Radon removal is necessary, and the results create a safety and healthy home.
