Radon Gas Danger

radon is the #1 cause of mortality in homes

The Surgeon General Has Warned That Radon Is The Second Leading Cause Of Lung Cancer In The United States Today.  Only Smoking Causes More Lung Cancer Deaths. According to EPA estimates, exposure to radon is responsible for 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year, more than drunk driving, household falls, drowning, or home fires.

Radon is a cancer-causing, radioactive gas. You can’t see radon.  And you can’t smell it or taste it.  But it may be a problem in your home. Steve Zivolich is one of the few California Radon Measurement Providers certified by the National Radon Proficiency Program, American Association of Radon Scientists, and the California Department of Health (#105129RT).
