When you think of air quality, you may not realize that the indoor air quality is equally as important. While most vehicles are being made with fewer pollutant emissions, they are helping to improve the air that we breathe in every day. However, while outdoor air is a cause for concern, so is the air within our offices and homes, and also buildings that are visited by hundreds each day. Oftentimes the indoor air quality is worse than the outdoor air. It is up to people themselves to ensure the air they are breathing in is safe and clean. However, easier said than done is often the case. This is true especially when entering a building owned by a company or corporation. Customers will have no control as to what emissions they are breathing in. But, thanks to strict government relations that have adapted to over the years, concerns like this one are no longer an issue for most. Radon testing and cleaning is a standard practice, and companies go to great lengths to ensure the safety and quality of their air, not only for their customers, but for their employees, who breath in their air for hours each day.
What to do if Radon Mitigation is needed
Whether a business or personal living space, radon cleaning is recommended on a regular basis. In order to have this done, it is best to first get the space tested. Home owners should also invest in a radon tester, a small household device. This usually plugs into any standard outlet. It will then alert you to any presence of radon any day or time of the year. You can also contact us and we can test your home. If a professional cleaning is needed, we can do this as well to help ensure the air quality is the best it can be. Having safe air to breathe in is important for you and your family.
Radon Testing is Important
Available for commercial use, radon-testing strips are easily bought and used. Each comes with simple yet specific instructions, and require strips to be displayed in an area for a few days. These strips, once exposed to the areas elements, are sent into a testing lab to show whether or not an area has been exposed to remnants of radon, and if so, to what degree. No matter how the results come back, they will give you peace of mind about the air you and others are breathing in. If there is a problem, you can be made aware and have it taken care of as soon as possible.
Radon Mitigation can be an issue
Under a law put into effect a few years ago, businesses of a certain location or size much use radon mitigation, a process that helps eliminate the amounts of poisonous gasses. Since the release of this law, commercial areas have seen a significant decrease to the amount of radon within their walls. Radon gasses can be a serious hazard to those who breathe them in. However, thanks to current testing abilities and safety standards, those threats have been greatly reduced, and will only continue to shrink.
