The gas is the second leading cause of the disease nationwide
This article is important to pay attention to, but I'd like to warn people to be
careful when you have your heat system serviced if the mechanic tells you your
radon levels are too high. Some of these companies are now using this scare
tactic to try to encourage you to buy a new heat system. Have your radon levels
tested by a professional who isn't in the business of selling heaters.
Radon, the next greatest scam to fleece unsuspecting homeowners out of
thousands. They tried the same thing with mold 10 years ago.Don't
let 'em get you... if this was really a danger you would have heard about it
long long ago.
@DeltaFoxtrot: How long ago? I've been aware of it for at least 16 years, and
no one has ever tried to scam me over it. Or are you just questioning whether
or not radon has real health effects? I haven't heard anything to the contrary,
so I'm truly curious.
@Xscribe: I'm saying Radon isn't nearly as dangerous as the people profiting
from it would have you believe. If it was really a threat to public health and
safety something would have been done about it quite some time ago.You've got a better chance of being struck by lightning than of having adverse
health effects because of Radon in your home.
One in tree Utah homes seems like a high percentage. Isn't there a
non expensive, non rip off way to test for it, like a carbon monoxide detector?
