15 Jun Want to Find Out More About Radon? Here’s How
At American Radon, we consider it part of our job to educate people about the facts and dangers of radon gas. Below is a guide to the best sources on radon, helping you to find out more about radon for yourself, your family, and friends.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a ton of resources on radon, including a list of local radon zones and contact information, publications on radon research, information on the National Radon Action Plan, information about radon in schools, FAQs, and so much more. If you are looking for a comprehensive resource for all things radon, we recommend visiting this site first. They also have a downloadable map of radon zones in the U.S. so you can check and see if your home state is at risk for high radon levels indoors.
Radon.com from Air Check Inc.
Radon.com is another great resource with helpful information about radon gas. They have a radon fact sheet, information on radon mitigation testing, and a list of useful radon links that can be a great educational resource for kids. Browse through the resources on this site if you want to know more about radon gas in your home or building.
The American Cancer Society
The American Cancer Society has a page dedicated to radon since it is the number two leading cause of lung cancer in America, second only to cigarettes. Visit this site to find out more about what radon is, how and where radon exposure occurs, radon-induced cancer, and studies to test the cancer-causing effects of radon gas. This page also discusses how to tell if you’ve been exposed, next steps if you suspect you’ve been exposed, and how to avoid exposure altogether. This is definitely a valuable source and one we always recommend to our fellow Coloradoans.
Ask the Professionals
Lastly, know that your local radon mitigation specialists are a resource as well. At American Radon, we’ll continue to provide you with facts about radon, answer your questions, and help you to make your home safer for everyone in it.
