Radon is not just a homowner's issue.I have been away from my radon blog for the last few weeks as I have been working in the field on a large radon mitigation project. This project is a townhouse style, low-income apartment complex. While working on this project I spent some time thinking about how great it is that the management company who hired us is taking action to protect their tenants from the dangers of radon gas.

It’s Monday night and you just got home from work. You enjoy a nice meal with your family and step down to the basement to watch your favorite TV show or sporting event. The show breaks for commercial and you notice an advertisement asking: Have you have ever been exposed to asbestos in the work place? Do you know anyone who has died from or is suffering from mesothelioma? If so you may have a personal injury case, call the mesothelioma experts at…. Now you probably don’t take much notice after that, you work and have always worked in clean modern buildings and to your knowledge you have never been exposed to asbestos. So you and your family continue on with your evening in the basement TV room, watching your favorite programs. What you may not know is that your basement TV room may be far more deadly than mesothelioma and unfortunately there aren’t many TV commercials educating you about radon gas and its risks.
It's a peaceful day in suburbia the sky is blue and the birds are chirping while the kids are playing in the yard. Enjoying the view you think how grateful you are of your beautiful new home. You notice the postman delivering the mail to your neighbors and make your way to the street to greet him. The postman hands you an envelope from the radon testing company, the results are in and the radon levels are surprisingly high! You look back at your new home and suddenly fear takes over, “how can this be?” “What do I do now?” “Do I have to move?”
You don’t have to move and even if you did, high radon levels can be found in any home. You can easily correct the problem through the installation of a radon mitigation system. Within 24 hours of a system installation, radon levels can be reduced by up to 99%. These soil gas ventilation systems can be hidden within the house and won't break the bank.

If there is a strange smell in your basement it may be musty odors from a moisture problem, a leaky gas pipe from a combustion appliance or just your teenagers gym socks. It is not radon gas. Radon gas is odorless, colorless, tasteless and radioactive.
