Test Your Bloomington, Indiana Home for Radon Action Month

Radon Action Month BloomingtonAs a resident of the Bloomington area, you may already have a sense about the danger of radon. Many Bloomington area residents have already found high levels of this dangerous radioactive gas in their homes, and many more are currently having their homes tested. If you have not yet had your own Bloomington area home tested for radon, the beginning of the new year is the perfect time to do so.

That is because the Environmental Protection Agency has recently announced that January is National Radon Action Month. The EPA made the announcement to call attention to the serious health impact of radon gas, and to urge homeowners in the Bloomington area and around the nation to have their properties properly tested.

Protect Your Family From Radon – EPA National Radon Action Month

According to the World Health Organization, radon exposure is responsible for up to 15 percent of all cases of lung cancer, in the Bloomington area, around the country and across the world. That means that radon exposure could be responsible for as many as 20,000 deaths from lung cancer in the United States alone, and up to 100,000 premature deaths around the world. With so much at stake, it is no wonder the EPA is urging all Bloomington area homeowners to have their properties tested during National Radon Action Month.

Having your Bloomington area home tested for radon can benefit yourself and your family in several different ways. If you have your Bloomington area home tested for radon and find no problems, you can rest easy, with the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have nothing to worry about.
