What Is Radon?
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that has no taste, odor, or color. It is produced by the natural decay of uranium in rocks, soil, water, and air. While radon is considered harmless when it occurs outdoors in lower levels, it is extremely harmful when it becomes concentrated inside homes or other structures.
How Does Radon Get into a Home?
Homes act as vacuums to the soil beneath them, which makes it easy for radon to move up through the ground and enter them via cracks and gaps in construction joints, plumbing pipes, foundations, wires, or walls. Once inside a home, radon tends to remain in the lower levels – such as a crawl space or basement – building up over time. Being heavier than air, it doesn’t often rise up to the higher levels of a home.
What Is the Best Way to Detect Radon?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends hiring qualified professionals to conduct radon tests in your home.
You should schedule a radon test if:
- You’ve never tested your home before
- You are buying or selling a home
- You are experiencing radon-related symptoms
- Your home is being renovated
- You are planning on converting the basement to a bedroom
What Are the Symptoms of High Radon Exposure?
Radon, the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking, is found to be responsible for up to 14% of lung cancers in the country according to the World Health Organization. It might take years of exposure before any health problems occur, and by the time symptoms do occur, many affected individuals either already have cancer or almost have it.
Some of the most common symptoms of high radon exposure include:
- Shortness of breath
- Difficulty breathing
- Persistent cough
- Chest tightness
- Trouble swallowing
- Coughing up blood
- Weight loss
- Frequent lung infections
For smokers, radon is significantly more harmful. If you are a smoker living in a home with radon, it is recommended that you quit smoking immediately to mitigate the risk of cancer.
Any individuals experiencing symptoms of radon exposure should seek medical attention immediately, then schedule radon testing and mitigation in Twin Falls with Magic Valley Restoration & Construction.
