Radon is an odorless, clear, invisible radioactive gas that fills the home from the ground on which the foundation was built. The gas is the #2 lung cancer causing agent, second behind tobacco smoking. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and the Surgeon General’s Office have estimated that as many as 20,000 lung cancer deaths are caused every year by radon. Radon-induced lung cancer costs the United States over $2 billion dollars per year in health care costs.
Ohio is one of seven states in the country that tests severely high (above 4 pCI/l) for radon levels. Buckeye Elite can test your home and will mitigate or clear the gas from your home, if testing yields an unacceptably high level of radon. Once your home has the installation of a radon mitigation system, your worries can be alleviated that the gas has been removed from your home.
