Radon is a radioactive gas occurring naturally below the earth's surface. The Atlanta area is a high radon area due to higher uranium ore deposits.
Radon is a silent killer estimated to produce the highest number of lung cancer deaths behind cigarette smoking.
It is tasteless, odorless, invisible and filters into the air that we breathe.
Radon seeps into homes through cracks and openings such as floor drains, sump pumps, loose pipe fittings, edges between concrete floors and walls, cracks in concrete and even water supply.
Environmental studies indicate that millions of home across the U.S. are contaminated with radon gas, many without knowing it.
Infants and young children with less developed immune systems, older adults and immuno-compromised individuals are at higher risk.
The EPA estimates that as many as 20,000 deaths per year occur from radon gas and urges that every home be tested for radon gas each year.
Though no level of radon has been deemed to be safe, the industry standard is a reduction below 4 picocuries - EPA's actionable level. We deploy proprietary leading edge technology with the goal of reduction below the WHO target level of 1.7 picocuries.
Additionally,We install permanent radon mitigation technology including soil depressurization, piping, suction points, fans and exhaust discharge away from openings to remove radon from your working or living environment.
Before you occupy, renovate or purchase any home or commercial facility or even after, have it tested. Call us at 404-995-4651 to measure, monitor and/or remediate radon !
