National Radon Action Month – Have Your South Bend Home Tested For Radon

Radon Action Month South BendIf you live in the South Bend area, you may already know that radon is a threat to your health and the health of your family, but you may not realize just how dangerous that threat can be. In fact, the threat posed to South Bend area homeowners by radon gas is so severe that the Environmental Protection Agency has recently announced that January will be celebrated as National Radon Action Month.

If you have not yet had your South Bend area home tested for radon, now is the perfect time to check the air inside your house for this colorless and odorless radioactive gas. Radon can seep into your South Bend home in many different ways, but it often enters through tiny cracks in the foundation or the basement walls. Since radon is a gas, it can enter your South Bend home through even the tiniest of spaces, so every house in the area is potentially at risk.

Experts Link Radon to Lung Cancer – It’s National Radon Action Month

You may already be vaguely aware of the danger posed by radon in your South Bend home, but you may not realize the true extent of the danger. According to the World Health Organization, radon contamination is responsible for up to 15 percent of lung cancer cases around the world, and there is no reason to think that the South Bend region is immune from that problem. If you live in the South Bend area, you and your family are at risk of lung cancer and other serious ailments.

One of the most dangerous and insidious things about radon contamination in the South Bend area is that the effects are cumulative. That means that every day you put off having your South Bend area home tested for radon is one more day you and your family are at risk. The longer you put off testing for radon in your South Bend home, the greater the risk and the more complicated the mitigation process can be.
