Radon Testing Answers for Atlanta, Georgia

Radon Testing Atlanta GeorgiaRadon testing is a foreign word to many southerners, and Atlanta, GA residents. Many often believe that radon gas only effects northern states, and that Georgia residents should not be concerned. While many northern homes are more susceptible to the threat of radon, this gas is also ramped throughout many southern states, including Atlanta, GA.

Radon testing is the only way to be sure that your home is safe from this radioactive gas. Like many gases, it is impossible to see or smell radon gas. This means that at the current moment, you may be inhaling this cancer-causing, deadly gas, and not even be aware of it. Radon testing will show your vapor levels, and allow an expert to informatively make a decision if further action is necessary.

Radon Testing Ensures Honest Work

While this radioactive vapor is causes over 20,000 deaths per year, your Atlanta home may not necessarily need an air purification system installed. S.W.A.T. Environmental prides itself on providing quality honest work, and this is why we always recommend radon testing before installing a mitigation system. Before replacing your car battery, you always test to make sure the battery is dead, and needs to be replaced. Use the same philosophy for your Georgia home, and test for radon before installing a system.

Do Not Risk Your Family’s Health

Radon testing may show that your family is safe, and that a mitigation system is necessary. As the nation’s largest mitigation company, we know that often this is not the case. Radon gas is naturally occurring, meaning that the natural pressure difference between your home, and your soil creates a vacuum sucking this vapor into your Atlanta home. While there are a variety of factors controlling whether or not radon is taking over your home, the only way to control the situation is with an air purification system.

Air purification systems may reduce your radon levels by as much as 99% in your Atlanta, GA home. Radon testing before and after your mitigation system is installed is a great way to keep track that your system is working, and ensure your family is safe. Breathing 99 times less radioactive gas each day than before maybe the healthiest choice you can make in your lifetime. Imagine how much better you will feel knowing that you are breathing clean air. Similar to a person that has given up smoking, you will be able to breathe clean air, and know that you have just greatly reduced your risk of lung cancer.
