The most common source of indoor radon is underground uranium. As uranium naturally breaks down, it releases colorless, odorless, radioactive radon gas. Radon gas enters homes through dirt floors, cracks in concrete walls and floors, floor drains, and sumps.
Radon causes lung cancer. EPA says 7,000 to 30,000 deaths are caused by radon every year.
Test your home for radon. You can buy state-certified test kits or hire a licensed radon professional in Will County.
Whether it’s cleanliness, odors, humidity, fresh air or noise, your air impacts everyone. PDM’s Clean Air Team can suggest indoor air solutions. Ask your doctor if an indoor air quality treatment can improve your health. An air filtering prescription can be tax deductible and may even be covered by your health insurance.
