Title National Radon Action Month and Simple Ways to Test Your Home
Introduction EMSL Analytical offers laboratory testing services and test kits to identify radon exposure risks in homes, schools and buildings as recommended by both the EPA and Surgeon General.

Cinnaminson, New Jersey, January 6th, 2022

January is recognized as National Radon Action Month. The aim of National Radon Action Month is to increase the public's awareness of radon, promote radon testing and mitigation, and advance the use of radon-resistant new construction practices reports the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Identifying and mitigating radon exposure risks is important as the EPA states that it is the leading cause of lung cancer deaths among nonsmokers in America and claims the lives of about 21,000 Americans each year. The agency also declares that homes with high levels of radon have been found in every state.

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is released in rock, soil, and water. In homes and other buildings, it can accumulate to dangerous levels as it moves up through the ground to the indoor air through cracks and other holes in the foundation. In some situations, radon can also enter through well water. Knowing the radon level indoors, where people spend a considerable amount of time, is important because when building occupants breathe in radon, radioactive particles from it can get trapped in the lungs. Exposure to elevated levels of radon can increase a person’s risk of lung cancer and it may take years before health problems appear.

“Radon can be found all across North America, but the good news is exposure to it is a preventable health risk,” said Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “You cannot see, smell or taste radon, but a simple test can provide the answer. If a problem is discovered, radon mitigation techniques offer a solution. To identify radon exposure risks, EMSL Analytical offers radon testing services and easy-to-use test kits.”

Several years ago, EMSL Analytical sponsored an educational video about National Radon Action Month that can still be seen at: https://youtu.be/SAOP0zz6yjo
