One simple act you may do during the month of January is furthering your education, and just becoming aware of some of the statistics associated with radon gas.

Did you know that roughly one out of every fifteen homes are affected adversely by high levels of radon gas?

Radon action month is the perfect time to have a professional install a mitigation system, or even simply have your home tested, but whatever you do, make sure you take action.

Action in Norwalk during Radon Action Month

During the month of January there are many things that you can do to help prevent deaths of lung cancer. The first thing you may decide to do is test your Norwalk home. This gas is both odorless and colorless, meaning the only way that you will be able to determine whether or not you are being affected is through radon testing. Once you have a professional test your home, you will have a much better idea as to the scope of danger. If your levels are low or normal, now further action is required. However, if your levels are above normal, you may be in need of mitigation as soon as possible.

Radon action month may be used to install the much needed mitigation system as well. Because radon is so deadly, a mitigation system is an investment in your health. You do not want you or your close family members to be struck down by lung cancer simply because you did not take the appropriate action for your Norwalk home. Radon action month is the perfect time to stop talking, and pick up the phone to call a representative at S.W.A.T. Environmental. They can answer any questions you may have, and even provide you with a quote for free.

Radon action month is also a time in which many take to the streets to support advocacy of radon awareness. As more people die each year from radon than drunk driving, it is obvious that more attention needs to be brought to this subject. If your Norwalk home has high levels of radon, there is a good chance that your neighbor’s home may have high levels as well. Simply informing your neighbor about the facts could be a huge difference. Do not let someone who may have radon gas go without knowing all of its dangers. No matter what you do, be sure to take action in Norwalk during radon action month.
