Everyone wants to have a happy home life. When facing issues with your pipes and drains you call a plumber; a electrical wire malfunctions and you contact an electrician, a renovator will come in to re-model your kitchen, but what about the problems that aren’t visible to the naked eye?
Up until this point, have you ever been concerned about radon? If you haven’t, it’s time to be.
Radon found in the home has detrimental consequences to your health.
Are you equipped to deal with it?
Radon is a radioactive gas that is colourless, tasteless and odourless. You have no idea that it’s there, yet it’s one of the leading causes of lung cancer.
You are not responsible for its appearance, either. Radon forms naturally when radioactive elements that are found in soil and rock, such as uranium, break down. Once this gas forms, it moves through the air and can seep into your home through any cracks or crevices.
Do not assume that you are not at risk of this happening to you.
Researchers have found that 1 in 8 Calgary homes are victim to radon. Many communities are facing these problems and you can’t turn a blind eye to the dangerous consequences that is posed by this gas.
There are long lists of health hazards that can manifest as a result of this gas remaining present within your home. You may have never smoked tobacco in your life, yet you are at risk of lung cancer. Your health will not be affected right away, but over time you will be putting both you and your family’s well being at risk.
You can take preventative measures to ensure that this doesn’t happen to you.
