Wisconsin Rapids & Surrounding Area Radon Testing And Mitigation
Testing for Radon in Wisconsin homes and businesses could mean the difference between life and death. If you’re not familiar with Radon, it’s a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is odorless and tasteless and causes cancer. It is found in homes all over the Unites States including the Wisconsin Rapids and Marshfield, WI areas.
Radon Testing is very effective at detecting this harmful gas and mitigation effectively rids your indoor climate of it. Authorities recommend that every home be tested and repeat tests done every 2 to 5 years. Radon testing before and after any remodeling or major structural renovations is also imperative.
If your Wisconsin Rapids, Marshfield, or surrounding area home or business has never had Radon Testing done, it’s important to call in a professional. Tri-City Refrigeration, Inc. offers Radon testing as part of our all inclusive commercial and residential HVAC and refrigeration services.
Testing For Radon is inexpensive and simple for an experienced technician. We know where to test and how to get accurate results you can trust. We’ll never tell you that you have a problem if you don’t. If you do happen to need mitigation (removal of Radon), we’ll offer you an estimate for the work.
If you do need Radon Mitigation, you’ll need specific equipment installed to keep the problem away for good. These mitigation systems must be installed by a qualified contractor. Removing the risk and threat of lung cancer from your home is paramount, so be sure whomever you choose is qualified and honest.
The National Safety Council states that of every 15 homes in this country, there are one that has elevated levels of Radon. This included new and old homes, well constructed and not. This radioactive substance is released from uranium that is in the ground. When rising into your home, it can build up. Basements and lower floors usually hold the highest levels of Radon.
Unfortunately, this is an odorless gas that you can’t taste either. The only way to be sure your home or business is not harboring this radiation is to have it tested. Radon emits high energy particles and waves that kill the cells in your body. Larger doses can damage DNA. Exposing your lungs damages the cells beyond repair and gets out of control. About 21,000 fatal cases of lung cancer in the U.S. every year are attributed to Radon according to the EPA.
