Bloomington, IN Radon Action Month

Radon Awareness Month Bloomington IndianaRadon action month is fast approaching, and S.W.A.T. Environmental has a question for Bloomington residents. Are you prepared? Last year tons of Bloomington, Indiana residents took a stand against radon gas and had their home tested, had mitigation systems installed, took the initiative to advocate against radon gas, or even simply take the step to further personal education on radon gas. In case you are not aware, 20,000 people die each year because of radon gas. Imagine never touching a cigarette, but still being diagnosed with lung cancer because of radon gas. This is a horrible reality that many in Bloomington are facing.

In addition to the tragic number of deaths, there are also an overwhelming number of homes which are affected. One out of every fifteen homes has high levels of radon gas, and is in need of a mitigation system. Certain areas, such as Bloomington, may be at a higher risk level. It is important to test your home frequently to be aware whether or not your home is affected, and to take the appropriate action if necessary. Start planning this December your plan of action for radon action month.

Taking Action for Radon Action Month in Bloomington

In order to take the appropriate action, you must see what level you are at in diagnosing the gas level in your Bloomington home. If you have never had a professional conduct a radon test on your Bloomington home, January may be the perfect time to have a professional conduct one. Radon gas cannot be seen or smelled, meaning that a test is the only way to know for certain whether or not you are at a high risk. Scheduling a test is more than half the battle for radon action month. If your levels are normal, you can simply go about your life normally, and schedule another test a few years down the road. If your levels are above normal, then a mitigation system is only a phone call away.

Having a professional install a mitigation system into your Bloomington home for radon action month is a life or death choice. I am not trying to be dramatic, but if your home has high levels of radon gas, and you are not taking the appropriate action, then you have just raised your risk of lung cancer. All of this can be avoided by simply calling your local Bloomington S.W.A.T. Environmental.

If you are debating whether or not a mitigation system is right for you, you should take into consideration how important a mitigation system is to your health. You may want to consider the cost as well, but you may be shocked at how affordable a mitigation system is from S.W.A.T. Environmental.
