All About Radon--A Cool Video!

By
Home Inspector with US Inspect

January is National Radon Action Month, so I thought I'd share a video from our media library called, All About Radon! And remember, all my videos are available for embedding on your Web site--so, feel free!

Why?
Inhalation of and exposure to radon decay products is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. If you're a smoker, your chances of contracting lung cancer are much greater. The EPA says upwards of 20,000 deaths per year occur from radon exposure.

Limiting our exposure to radon gas is not just hype, it's genuinely important to the health and well-being of you and your family members.

Testing for Radon
There are various ways to test for radon from self testing to having a professional conduct a test. We always recommend a nationally certified specialist (NEHA) to get the most accurate reading.

About The Video
Find out what radon is, how it finds its way into our homes, and how we can protect ourselves as well as our families. You'll learn it's not very difficult or expensive to make your home a safer place to be.

Chrissy great blog and great info. Radon may be the new buzz word on the block but here in CO it can be a deal killer.  Thank goodness there is a solution.

We don't often test for radon in our area. However, we had an agent that went to Lowe's to get a kit a got a high reading. I highly suggested a certified inspector to check not the real estate agent.

Thanks for the video Chrissy.  In Boise, Radon hasn't made a big splash yet but perhaps it's right around the corner.

I'm feeling very well, thanks, Ellen! No time to really think about it most of the time between work and my other daughter, so it can be kind of funny. (Funny in that, you wouldnt think pregnancy was something you could "forget" was happening to you ;-) but sometimes, I do!) Thanks for asking!

Chrissy, glad to hear it and I do know what you mean, at one time I was commuting, working full time, and had 3 kids in 3 years. Talk about non-stop.
