British Columbia - Local basement and crawl space specialist has increased its services arsenal to now include radon mitigation.
While Japan continues to make news regarding its recent radiation concerns, it's also drawing attention to the radiation people are already being exposed to on a daily basis-- radon. Unfortunately it's taken such a tragedy overseas to raise awareness to the severity of radon exposure.
Radon is found in most soil and enters the air upon the decay of uranium. As radon enters the air it makes its way into basements through small cracks and holes. If during the winter or summer, when homes are most commonly tightly sealed, the radon can become congested without an escape route.
Whether confined at high or low levels, the effects of radon exposure are quite severe. In the U.S. the Environmental Protection Agency has estimated 21,000 annual deaths from radon induced lung cancer.
Interior Basement Systems has joined in the fight against this in-home terror because they vastly understands the need for awareness and removal of this gas from homes, jobs, gyms, and all local buildings.
