Whenever we think of something toxic coming into our home from the ground up we think of the probability being very slight to none. Think again. To some degree we all realize that toxins exist in just about everything we could possibly come into contact with, live around and become exposed to every single day. However, most toxins can be overcome through practicing a wellness lifestyle (i.e. prevention through nutrition, exercise and spiritual balance). To walk around paranoid would not be wisdom. Instead of looking over your shoulder, why not simply understand the probability of exposure and take action to know/discover if you stand at risk?
Some areas have higher concentration potential than others, but homes with elevated radon concentrations have been found in every county in Nevada.
Any building with contact to the soil can have a radon problem because radon comes from the decay of uranium, which can be found in rock and soil underneath our homes, offices and schools.
The good news is that radon levels are easy to test for and high levels can be lowered by a certified mitigator.
Results collected since 1989 show that about one in four Nevada homes have elevated radon levels, yet many homeowners have not tested for radon. This might be because radon is an odorless, colorless, invisible gas and there are no immediate adverse, visible effects.
Radon gas quietly enters homes through cracks in the floor, construction joints and gaps around service pipes.
