One of the side benefits of installing a moisture level system to control floor slab heave is that it also controls radon gas & vapor transmission. The EPA estimates that from radon gas there are 21,000 deaths a year in the United States. More than is killed by drunk driving. But because it it occurs on an individual basis it is seldom talked about in the news.
So how common is this throughout the US? The EPA places Arizona in the middle category of three categories in terms of occurrence. Here in the desert climates the average home has a one in 10 chance of having high radon levels. If you live in the higher elevations of Arizona your chances may increase to one in three.
The Surgeon General of the United States has recommended that every home be tested for radon. This is a fairly easy and inexpensive process. We are now certified to offer this testing in your home.
