Radon Gas Mitigation Prevents Lung Cancer in Wilmington
Lung cancer is often thought to be a cancer given only to those who smoke, or receive heavy amounts of secondhand smoke. While this normally holds true, it quickly is becoming a false statement as more and more cases of lung cancer are diagnosed in Wilmington, DE due to terrible radon gas. Radon gas is naturally occurring in the soil beneath your Wilmington home, and is odorless and colorless, meaning a radon test is the only way to detect it. Radon gas mitigation systems may help prevent lung cancer as they remove this horrible gas from your home.
Imagine going through your whole entire life without ever lighting up a cigarette. We assume that lung cancer is out of the question, and that we are safe from cancer. New studies have shown that 16% of all lung cancer cases are due to radon gas, which has equated to in excess of 20,000 annual deaths nationally. Many doctors are now stating that radon gas is one of the top ten causes of cancer, and putting it on high alert.
Radon Gas Mitigation Process in Wilmington, DE
Now that you know the major concerns with radon gas in Wilmington, you need to know how it forms. Radon gas forms through the breaking down of Uranium in the soil beneath or around your Wilmington home. This is a naturally occurring process, but the concern is that too much of this radon gas gets vacuumed sucked into your home. Once in your home, the concentrations of radon gas become dangerous. Radon gas is radioactive. Unlike other chemicals which the jury is still out on the actual long term health risks, we know radiation causes cancer, and therefore in addition to studies and research, it is common knowledge that this gas causes cancer.
To begin the radon gas mitigation process for your Wilmington home, a professional should test your home, and pinpoint the entry point of any radon gas. Your home may not have radon gas, and therefore only an air purification system would be needed if you would like to have a preventative measure. If your home has levels of radon gas, there is a custom solution that one of our professionals will be able to design and install on your home. We specialize in having systems that are not as visible or large as other companies as to not to hurt the aesthetics of your home.
