Your family could possibly be at the risk of developing lung cancer from the radioactive, colorless, odorless and tasteless gas called RADON. AmeriServ ‘s Radon testing team can do a radon test that will monitor your home or business for up to 48 hours to determine the level of RADON you are being exposed to daily. Doesn’t that seem like a sensible thing to do? More than 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year are attributed to breathing radon. It is impossible to completely eradicate RADON. The dangerous gas is a product of thorium and uranium breakdown with the soil. It is a slow and natural process and it emits gas into the air so the exposure is everywhere.
Radon Tests in Iowa
Ameriserv Radon Mitigation Iowa is a leader in Iowa for testing for radon. The EPA has standards that gauge the level of radon that is threatening to your health. Levels are measured in picocuries. These are scientific measurements that express the units of radioactivity that is being emitted. The “harmful” level would be if your test came back at 4 pCi or above. If the radon test shows levels above 4 a radon mitigation Iowa plan would be put into place to rid your structure of this harmful gas. Consider radon testing and radon mitigation today and give Ameriserv Radon Mitigation Iowa a call.
