The Silent Killer

Did you know that . . .

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, after smoking? Approximately 20,000 cancer deaths each year are caused by radon?

What is it? Radon is a radioactive gas that cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted and is found naturally around the country. When you breathe air containing radon, the sensitive cells in your airway are irritated, increasing your risk of getting lung cancer.

Radon is found in the dirt and rocks beneath houses, in well water, and in some building materials. It can enter your house through soil, dirt floors in crawlspaces, and cracks in foundations, floors, and walls. Once inside, radon gas can sometimes get trapped inside the house. All houses have some radon, but houses next to each other can have very different radon levels, so the only way to measure your particular risk is to test your own house.

Keep your family safe from the silent killer! Contact BRM Home Inspections at 678-480-6926 to schedule your comprehensive Radon assessment.
