Some of Radon Myths

Radon only affects certain types of homes

Radon can be a problem in all types of homes, including old homes, new homes, drafty homes, insulated homes, homes with basements, and homes without basements. Local geology, construction materials, and how the home was built are among the factors that can affect radon levels in homes. It is also important to underline that two close houses can have different level of radon. Therefore, the only way to know if a house has a high level of radon is to test it.

I have lived in my home for so long, it does not make sense to take action now.

You will reduce your risk of lung cancer when you reduce radon levels, even if you have lived with an elevated radon level for a long time.

Arizona and Radon Gas

Radon presence in Arizona is similar to the national average.

A state indoor radon sampling survey conducted in 1987-89 by the Arizona Radiation Regulatory Agency suggest that about 1 out of 15 Arizona homes may contain radon concentrations in excess of the EPA recommended action level of 4.0 picocuries per liter of air (4.0pCi/L).
