  • Reduce Radon Levels In Your Home

    Hi Guys

    How much of a problem in NZ is Radon?

    Here is an article from the States.

    Reduce Radon Levels In Your Home
    Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. The Surgeon General and the EPA recommend testing for radon and reducing radon in homes that have high levels. Fix your home if your radon level is confirmed to be 4 picoCuries per liter (pCi/L) or higher. Radon levels less than 4 pCi/L still pose a risk, and in many cases may be reduced. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of lung cancer is especially high.

    Select A State Certified And/Or RPP Contractor
    Choose a radon contractor to fix your home who is state certified and/or listed for radon reduction [mitigation] in EPA's National Radon Proficiency Program (RPP). RPP-listed mitigation contractors are trained, must pass a comprehensive exam, and must agree to follow standards developed to ensure effective radon reduction. Call your state radon office for a list of qualified contractors in your area.

    Radon Reduction Techniques Work
    Radon reduction systems work. Some radon reduction systems can reduce radon levels in your home by up to 99%. The cost of fixing a home generally ranges from $500 to $2500. Your costs may vary depending on the size and design of your home and which radon reduction methods are needed. Thousands of people have reduced radon levels in their homes.

    Maintain Your Radon Reduction System
    Maintaining your radon reduction system takes little effort and keeps the system working properly and radon levels low.

    Radon? Sounds like something you'd make clothes out of back in the 70's!

      That's rayon - a fabric made from cellulose, believe it or not.

      According to my dictionary radon (Rn) is a colourless, radioactive element of the noble gas group. Any the wiser? No? Neither am I.
