Radon systems typically start in the crawl space or basement and force the gas out of the home.
When you breathe air containing radon regularly, you are at risk of contracting lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.
Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon can be found all over the U.S., in any type of building - homes, offices, and schools. But you and your family are most likely to get your greatest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time.
Ohio Basement Authority can test for radon gas levels in your home and if they are above the recommended levels, we can customize a radon mitigation system to fix the problem. With input from you, a mitigation system can be designed and installed to effectively bring home radon gas down to a safe level. We serve the Ohio area, including Columbus, Springfield, Mansfield and nearby.
