Radon is a problem for many New Hampshire homeowners according to the EPA ; Advanced Radon Mitigation Urges New Hampshire Residents to Test for Radon.
Online PR News – 25-June-2013 – Hooksett NH – Hooksett NH: Radon is odorless, tasteless, and a public health menace, according to a representative of Advanced Radon Mitigation, which has been helping New Hampshire residents test for and mitigate radon since 1997.
“According to the EPA, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, only exceeded by cigarette smoking. For non-smokers, radon is actually the leading cause of lung cancer. If you are anywhere in New Hampshire, you should have a radon test conducted in your home. It could save your family’s life.
The EPA – or Environmental Protection Agency – has been vigilant in reminding Americans of the dangers posed by radon ever since the Indoor Radon Abatement Act was passed in 1988, a measure which required the EPA to list and identify areas in the United States with the potential for elevated radon levels. By the EPA’s categorization, there are three radon zones in the country – with zones 1 and 2 presenting the highest and “moderate” risk for radon contamination.
“And of course, the entire state of New Hampshire falls under zone 1 or zone 2,” claimed the Advanced Radon Mitigation rep.
There are five criteria used by the Environmental Protection Agency to determine risk for indoor radon contamination: indoor radon measurements; geology; aerial radioactivity; soil permeability; and foundation type.
In New Hampshire radon can contaminate virtually all aspects of a home. It can seep in through the foundation and corrupt indoor air quality; similarly, it can vitiate well water, as it courses up through the earth. With the state of New Hampshire no longer offering a radon program through its Department of Environmental Services, it is especially important that residents of places like Manchester and Concord seek radon testing – and, if necessary, mitigation.
Advanced Radon Mitigation offers New Hampshire radon testing and mitigation. New Hampshire residents who are concerned about radon contamination are urged to contact the company today.
