Uranium is a natural element in soil. During its radioactive decay, it produces radon, a Type A carcinogen. You can’t see, taste or smell radon, but it has slow and gradual adverse effects. It can ultimately lead to lung cancer.

Oswego homes can be exposed to high levels of radon and not even be aware of it. Radon mitigation is the only way to ensure you’re not at risk.

A Review of Radon

The gas we know as radon was discovered in 1900 by German physicist Frederich Dorn, who initially called it radium emanation. The name was changed to radon in 1923.

American construction worker Stanley Watras made the issue of radon public in 1984 while working at a Pennsylvania nuclear power plant. Though the plant didn’t yet store nuclear materials, Watras had started setting off radiation monitors. Closer inspection identified the cause to be radon and radon progeny clinging to his clothes and skin.

Watras urged the testing of his home for radiation contamination. The results revealed high levels of radon gas, and his case incited wider testing throughout his region. The EPA followed with its own awareness campaigns and ultimately passed the Indoor Air Quality Research Act in 1986. States then created their own radon programs soon after.

Understanding and managing radon is important to public and personal health. For more information about radon, call Trinity Electrical and Radon Mitigation at (630) 499-1492. You can also visit the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) Division of Nuclear Safety website.
