You can’t smell it. You can’t taste it. You can’t see it. We’re talking about radon gas which I know you’ve probably heard. I’ve been joining us today as Diana cotton with Radon Delete. And thank you for joining us. First of all, radon, we talked a little bit beforehand—you kind of scared me a little bit. Yeah, so Rita and gas, you can’t smell it, you can’t taste it, you can’t see it, you don’t know it’s there unless you test for it. And so radon is the uranium breaking down in soil and rock under your home’s foundation. So on the ground. So how do we become exposed to it? Because radon is a heavy gas, it will eventually seep out of the ground, but the ground is dense, so it’s going to get into your home because that’s the path of least resistance. And it goes into the foundations through cracks, some pumps, and if there are cracks and crevices in your foundation. Okay, so how do I know then that it is in my home? What would I do? Yeah, so you can get a test kit, and it’s like a DIY do-it-yourself test kit, and they’re usually $20 or less. We offer them at Radon Delete.
You can call (859) 629-8495. We can get you the test kit right now. We are offering them for about $10, and you set it up in your basement for about three days, and you’ll know what your results are. Right, and there is a trim level of radon in every basement, right, so how do we know what a safe level is? So EPA says that a safe level is anything 3.9 and under, and radon is measured in Pico Curie’s, so 3.9 under. The World Health Organization says 2.7 and under. So you want it as low as possible because you never know. You never know what that safe level is for yourself. So doing it tells me a bit of statistically speaking how many homes out there then I know how many homes have how many radon so nationally one in 15 homes. But that means your neighbor could have no radon, and you could have radon because it could be a pocket underground. That’s just releasing it right in your pathway, so the best way to know is what’s safe and what’s or what your levels are that are considered safe. An extended porous example in a level of 4.0, so one point you know is one higher than EPA safe level is equivalent to smoking eight cigarettes a day. You just said beforehand which would start the second leading cause of lung cancer, second only to smoking. All right, in the Radon Delete group, put your number (859) 629-8495 there on the screen. Thank you for educating us.
