Radon Testing in Idaho Falls
Radon is an invisible and odorless gas formed from the natural breakdown of uranium in rocks, soil, and water. It penetrates buildings through cracks in the walls, floors, foundation, plumbing, or electrical lines and slowly forms part of the indoor air in homes and workplaces.
When inhaled, the carcinogenic particles are trapped in the lungs causing mutations and increasing the risk of developing lung cancer. According to the CDC, radon is the leading environmental cause of cancer and comes second only after cigarette smoke.
Idaho is known to have many areas with high levels of radon with 2 out of 5 homes revealing levels above 4.0 pCi/L. In Idaho Falls, for instance, 42% of the tests that have been conducted have shown levels above 3.9 pCi/L.
While there are no acceptable or safe levels of radon exposure, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends taking up mitigation measures if your property has levels between 2.0 pCi/L to 4.0 pCi/L.
Since it’s impossible to detect the radioactive gas through sight, touch, or smell, the only way to know the levels of radon on your property is through testing and Healthy Home Environmental Services is here to help.
