Indianapolis Residents Face Lung Cancer from Radon
If you live in Indianapolis, IN, then you probably assume that you are safe from lung cancer as long as you do not smoke. Even if you do smoke, you may assume that because you do not smoke multiple packs per day that you are at a lower risk of lung cancer. Groundbreaking research has proven that radon gas mitigation may be an equal or greater indicator of whether or not you will be diagnosed with lung cancer.
Studies have shown that roughly 16% of all cases of lung cancer are caused by radon gas. This states more than one out of every seven cases of lung cancer is often someone who has never smoked cigarettes in their life, yet still has all of the same health effects as if they had been smoking packs per day. When you read this, it is difficult not to ask yourself immediately how you may reduce the levels of radon gas in your Indianapolis home.
Radon Gas Mitigation in Indianapolis, Indiana
As a resident of Indianapolis, radon gas mitigation may be a foreign term. Radon gas mitigation reduces the level of radon gas in your Indianapolis home to a safe level that allows you not to have to worry about lung cancer. Naturally occurring in the soil beneath your Indianapolis home, radon gas forms from broken down Uranium. Radon gas cannot be smelt or seen, and therefore the only way to determine whether or not action is required is through a test.
Tests will show the levels of radon in your home, which will allow you to grasp the actual danger level you may be confronted with. Even if your home does not show dangerous levels of radon, many still choose to at least have an air purification system installed because of the potential risks. Think about it this way, if Uranium is around your home, it is only a matter of time before it breaks down into radon, and engulfs your home with this cancer causing gas.
Hiring a Professional Radon Gas Mitigation Company
When you see your testing results and know that your Indianapolis home is in dire need of radon gas mitigation treatment, it is time to call a professional. Radon gas mitigation systems take a lot of precision. If installed incorrectly, they will not be effective, and you will still be subjected to the risk of cancer that you were already at risk of. If they are installed sloppily, they will look bulky and take away from the look of your beautiful Indianapolis home.
