Summer is here and with it comes Indoor Air Quality concerns. Is your family at risk? With summer weather covering a majority of the country, air conditioners are getting fired up in all types of building. Closed windows and reduction of outdoor air ventilation can lead to an increase of naturally occurring indoor pollutants, like radon gas. The buildup of radon gas occurs naturally as Uranium decays and it seeps into buildings through cracks and gets trapped inside. According to the EPA, any building in any state can have high radon levels.
The health effect from indoor air pollutants, such as radon are sometimes not felt for years. Humans as well as pets are at risk. Did you know, according to the World Health Organization, 4.3 million people a year die from the exposure to household air pollution? The first step to better indoor air quality is testing. Radon mitigation systems should be considered if radon levels test over 4pCi/L.
