Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, after smoking. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Surgeon General strongly recommend taking further action when the homes radon test results are 4.0 pCi/l (picocuries per liter of air) or greater. Radon levels less than 4.0 pCi/l still pose a risk and in many cases may be reduced. The national average indoor radon level is about 1.3 pCi/l while outdoor radon levels average 0.4 pCi/l. The higher a homes radon level, the greater the health risk to you and your family. Smokers and former smokers are at especially high risk. EPA recommends that you use an EPA or State-approved contractor trained to fix radon problems. You can call your state radon office to obtain information, including a list of EPA or State-approved radon contractors who can fix or can help you develop a plan for fixing the radon problem.
