Radon Question #1

What is radon? Radon gas is a radioactive gas. It is released from the decay of uranium in rocks & soil. Radon is an invisible, odorless, tasteless gas that seeps up through the ground & permeates the air.

Radon Question #2

How am I exposed to radon? Radon gas is present in nearly all air. Every day, we breathe in radon, typically at very low levels. However, when there are high levels of radon, there can be serious health consequences. Radon gas enters into the home through cracks in the floors, walls, or foundation. It then collects indoors, creating high levels. Basements & first floors usually have the highest levels of radon because they are closest to the source of the radon gas.

Radon Question #3

How does radon gas cause cancer? Radon decays quickly, giving off tiny radioactive gas particles. When this gas is inhaled, these radioactive particles can damage the cells that line the lung. Long-term exposure to radon can lead to lung cancer. This is the only cancer that is proven to be associated with inhaling radon gas.

Radon Question #4

How many people are diagnosed with cancer from exposure to radon gas? There are almost 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths each year that are associated with radon gas exposure.

Radon Question #5

How can people know if they have high levels of radon gas in their homes? Since radon gas is odorless, tasteless & invisible, the only way to tell if your home has elevated levels is to test. Every home should conduct its own test. Just because one home does not have high levels of radon does not mean that neighboring homes are safe.

Radon Question #6

Who can help reduce levels of radon? A licensed radon mitigation professional can reduce the levels of radon in your home. The professionals are licensed the state & are qualified to safely reduce levels in your home.

"The technicians at Trinity services were extremely professional. It was a pleasure to open up our home to them. My wife and I were extremely impressed with how neat and clean they worked. A lot of contractors just don't care, but I could tell that Trinity was not one of those contractors."

Bruce – Naperville, IL

"I met Josiah last week when he came out to 310 S Rosedale in Aurora to consult with my clients about the house they are buying. I was very impressed by both his knowledge and wiliness to answer questions. Far too many in the trades are not quite so customer centric. In any case, it is my pleasure to recommend your company to other agents and to my own clients in the future."
