January is Designated National Radon Action Month by the EPA
EMSL Analytical offers radon test kits and analysis to protect people from the invisible killer.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has declared January to be National Radon Action Month. As a leading provider of radon test kits and radon analysis, EMSL Analytical supports this important public awareness campaign.
According to the EPA radon website, “You can’t see, smell, or taste radon, but it could be present at a dangerous level in your home. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among nonsmokers in America and claims the lives of about 20,000 Americans each year. In fact, the EPA and the U.S. Surgeon General urge all Americans to protect their health by testing their homes, schools, and other buildings for radon. Exposure to radon is a preventable health risk, and testing radon levels in your home can help prevent unnecessary exposure. If a high radon level is detected in your home, you can take steps to fix the problem to protect yourself and your family.”
“Radon has been found in elevated levels in all 50 states,” reported Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President, Marketing at EMSL. “There is no part of the country is completely free of the risk. In fact, two houses right next to each other could have completely different levels of radon in the homes. The only way to be sure that your family is not as risk is to have a home tested to be sure it’s under the EPA’s action level of 4 pCi/L.”
During the cold winter months is an ideal time to have a home or property tested for radon. During these times buildings are typically sealed to keep the property heated and this closed environment can increase radon levels.
EMSL Analytical has a website dedicated to radon which can be found at www.RadonTestingLab.com. Property owners across the United States can check the radon levels in their geographical area and even download a radon map.
