Radon is the second most common cause of lung cancer in America, causing as many as 21,000 deaths each year. Lung cancer is the most common form of cancer, causing 1.8 million cases per year and 1.6 million deaths globally. Because of the high mortality rate of lung cancer, radon is considered a leading health hazard.
Commercial Radon Testing
We can all guard against the dangers of radioactive radon gas in our own homes, but what about our places of work, shops, stores, and other commercial properties. If you are the owner or operator of a commercial property you have a moral, and likely a legal obligation to protect your customers and employees from radon.
The dangers of radon affect us all, but when people gather in large buildings, the risks are compounded- especially for business owners.
Commercial Radon Testing is Effective and Affordable
Fortunately, testing for radon can be done easily and effectively for both long and short term exposure. A short term radon test for a single room or space can be done in as little to 48 to 96 hours. After that, long term detectors can be put in place to measure for radon for months at a time.
Once radon is detected at elevated levels, we can advise the best mitigation remedy depending on if an HVAC implementation or de-pressurization system would be the best option.
You owe it to your customers, your employees, and to yourself to guard against the danger of radon exposure in your commercial property. What’s more, state, federal, and local regulations may require you to perform radon testing on a regular basis.
