Surgeon General Health Advisory

"Indoor radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and breathing it over prolonged periods can present a significant health risk to families all over the country. It's important to know that this threat is completely preventable. Radon can be detected with a simple test and fixed through well-established venting techniques."

Radon Is The Leading Cause Of Lung Cancer Among Non-Smokers.


•You can't see, smell, or taste radon, but it may be a problem in your home. 

•According to the EPA's 2003 Assessment of Risks from Radon in Homes (EPA 402-R-03-003) radon is estimated to cause about 20,000 lung cancer deaths per year in the USA. 

•The EPA also concluded that the effects of radon an cigarette smoking are synergistic, so that smokers are at considerably higher risk from radon.

•Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in the soil, rock, and water, then mixes into the air you breathe.

•Radon can be found all over the U.S.

•It can get into any type of building - homes, offices, and schools, but you and your family are most likely to get the highest exposure at home, where you spend most of your time.

•The EPA and the Surgeon General recommend all homes below the third level be tested for radon.

•If high radon levels are detected, radon reduction systems can be installed in your home and are not too costly. Some systems can reduce the levels in your home by up to 99%. 

•Radon can enter all homes; new, old, well sealed, drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. 

•1 out of 15 homes in the U.S. is estimated to have high radon levels, but Utah has the potential for higher concentration levels such as 1 in 3.5 homes.

How radon enters a home
What if high levels of radon are found in my home?

While there is no known safe level of radon, due to the fact there is always some risk, the EPA has set 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) as the national action level. Homes exceeding that level should be fixed. Homes with levels lower than 4 pCi/l still pose a lesser risk, and in many cases may be reduced.


How do I lower the radon level in my home?

There are several proven methods to reduce radon in your home. The primary system used is a vent pipe and fan, which will pull radon from under the home and vent it outside. This system, known as a soil suction radon reduction system, does not require major changes to your home. Sealing foundation cracks and other openings makes this kind of system more effective and cost-efficient. Other methods are also available and will vary based on the design of your home. A professional radon mitigation contractor can provide more details.


I am adding on to my home or finishing my basement. Do I need a radon test?

The EPA recommends if you are planning any major structural renovation, such as converting an unfinished basement area into a living space, it is especially important to test the area for radon before you begin your project. If your test results are above the action level, radon resistant techniques can be inexpensively included as part of the renovation. Because major renovation can change the level of radon in any home, always test again after the work is finished.


If high radon levels are detected in my home, what will the cost be to have the problem remedied?

​The cost of reducing radon in your home depends on the type of construction and the extent of the problem. Most homes can be fixed for about the same cost as other common home repairs. The average home costs about $1400 for a professional radon mitigation contractor to fix, although it can range from about $800-$2500. The cost is much less if a passive system is installed during construction. Behind The Scenes Home Inspections does not offer mitigation services due to the need to maintain an unbiased position for our clients, but we recommend visiting www.radongas.org to select from one of many well qualified mitigation contractors.
