Unbeknown to most homeowners, an invisible, odorless, cancer-causing
radioactive gas could be seeping into their home. Radon occurs
naturally, and outdoors, presents very few problems. However, if it
builds up indoors, it can be deadly. In fact, radon is the top cause
of lung cancer among nonsmokers.
Fortunately, not every region in the country is affected by radon.
However, the radon risk in Chicago is moderate to high, and in most
of Central Illinois, the risk is extremely high. Radon
mitigation in Chicago is something you
should definitely consider.
Radon occurs when naturally-occurring radioactive elements in soil
and bedrock begin to breakdown, resulting in radon gas. While
radioactive elements such as uranium may be deep underground, the gas
still can seep up to the surface. From there, it can fill a home,
school, or business by seeping through cracks in the foundation. Well
water can also contain radon.
Both new and old homes can have a radon problem. The fact is, if your
property is in a radon zone, you probably have a radon problem.
The good news is, there are ways to mitigate the risk radon poses
within your home or business. However, a professional will need to
both measure the radon levels inside your home or business, as well
as evaluate the property. The radon mitigation solution will depend
on your foundation and other key factors.
