Have you been told that you have Radon gas in your home but not feeling too concerned about it? That has been the reaction of many homeowners, but sometimes this might be because of a lack of information. In reality, having Radon gas leaking into your home is a serious deal, especially if there are high levels.
Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, and your risk will be higher if you don’t take any steps to fix the problem.
Radon gas is radioactive, and it naturally seeps out of the ground. The problem is that basements can act as an easy path for the gas to exit. If you have a lot of cracks in your basement this can increase the risk of Radon gas leaking into your home. Remediation includes digging trenches under the foundation to funnel the gas outside of your home. While some homes will be fine if the cracks in the basement are filled, this is not always going to prove to be enough.
