A high radon reading is no reason to panic
Since radon is a known carcinogen, any exposure has some risk of causing lung cancer. However, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established recommended concentration levels that minimize exposure and health risks. The amount of radon in the air is measured in “picocuries of radon per liter of air,” or “pCi/L.” Sometimes test results are expressed in Working Levels, “WL,” rather than picocuries per liter of air. A level of 0.02 WL is usually equal to about 4 pCi/L in a typical home.
The EPA recommends that homeowners fix their homes if the results of one long-term test or the average of two short-term tests show radon levels of 4 pCi/L (or 0.02 WL) or higher.
Don’t worry if your radon test reveals a high concentration of radon gas in your interior air. No matter how high your radon levels are, you can be confident that an experienced radon mitigation specialist will be able to reduce radon levels effectively and affordably.
