Reliable Radon Testing Services In Elk Grove
Elk Grove is on Interstate 90 about an hour west of Chicago. It’s just outside of O’Hare International Airport and is home to 300,000 people.
When you’re preparing to buy a new home in Elk Grove, IL, one of the first things you should consider is making sure that your home doesn’t have high levels of radon gas or other harmful elements such as asbestos or lead paint (both of which are commonly found in older homes).
That’s why BoomTown Radon Testing offers radon testing services designed to keep your family safe and healthy.
What is Radon?
Radon is a radioactive gas that comes from underground. Radon can enter your home through cracks and openings in floors and walls.
It cannot be seen or smelled, but if you’re exposed to it long enough you can develop health problems. The Surgeon General estimates that radon is responsible for as many as 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year. This number makes radon one of America’s leading environmental health hazards.
When you think of harmful gases from inside your home, radon is probably not one of them. But it should be. Radon is an odorless and colorless gas produced by decaying uranium found beneath our feet.
It’s estimated that 1 out of 15 homes have elevated levels that put occupants at risk for lung cancer – second only to smoking as a cause of lung cancer – and yet many people don’t know about it or don’t know how to test their homes.
BoomTown Radon Testing offers fast and affordable radon testing services to make sure your family is safe from these risks.
Why Test for Radon?
Radon is an odorless gas that seeps into your home through cracks and crevices. It may seem insignificant at first, especially since you can’t see it or smell it, but prolonged exposure to radon can lead to increased chances of lung cancer.
Radon is one of those things that most people don’t know enough about. For example, did you know that radon is believed to be responsible for more than 20% of lung cancer cases?
Radon has also been linked to chronic respiratory diseases like asthma and bronchitis. That’s why it’s so important to test your home for radon levels.
