Is there a killer in your house?

According to both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the American Lung Association, radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the nation, second only to smoking. And it's the sixth-leading cause of all cancer deaths combined, responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year. Testing radon in your home is easy.

What exactly is Radon?

Radon is an invisible, odorless, tasteless and radioactive gas that occurs naturally in rocks and soils throughout the world. It rises through cracks in the ground and in basements of buildings, where it collects, increasing the concentration that is inhaled.
Radon may be found in older homes and buildings and in newer ones as well. In fact since newer homes are more airtight than older ones, they often allow higher concentrations of radon to accumulate.

How do I know if there's radon in my home or building?

Radon can be found in one house and yet not in the one next door. To know if radon is present, you have to have a test done to determine the level of radon in the house. Most of Central Tennessee, including Giles, Lawrence, Lincoln, Marshall, Maury, Williamson, Rutherford and Bedford Counties, are within EPA’s area known as Zone 1 – designated as an area having a predicted average indoor radon screening level greater than 4piCi/L (picocuries per liter of air).

What you can do?...

EPA recommends that a home be fixed if its radon level is 4 pCi/L or higher. And, because there is no known safe level of exposure to radon, you should consider fixing your home even if your tested radon levels are under 4 pCi/L but over 2 pCi/L.
Someone may tell you to simply put a fan in your basement. That just moves the radon gas around; it doesn't lessen the amount. You also might hear you should just open a window. But then you lose all your heated, cooled or conditioned air. Your best bet is to contact Partridge Hill Services, LLC and we can test your house for radon. If a radon mitigation system is needed we can recommend contractors who can install a system that efficiently removes the high concentration of radon from your home, most often using sub-floor or crawlspace suction and venting techniques.
