Radon is a radioactive gas originating from the decay of uranium in soil and rock that can accumulate to cancer-causing levels within indoor spaces. With an average of about 21,000 lung cancer deaths attributable to radon each year, exposure over time poses substantial health risks, damaging lung tissue through alpha radiation as radon decays. Any radon exposure carries some degree of lung cancer risk, which is why an effective mitigation system is so crucial.
The EPA recommends mitigation for any home or structure showing radon levels above 4 pCi/L. However, even though the average level of indoor radon in Lubbock is below the EPA action level, your home can still have high concentrations. Thankfully, our experienced RMPs design and install highly effective radon mitigation systems.
