Why Radon Testing is Important for Bloomfield Residents
As a resident of Bloomfield, MI, you may have heard about the dangers of radon gas. Killing over 20,000 citizens each year, radon is extremely dangerous. Due to its high levels of radioactivity, scientific research has been limited, but has only proven detrimental health risks. Some homes affected by radon have been shown to have the same effect as smoking 135 packs of cigarettes per day. Killing more than drunk driving, fires, drowning, and more, it makes sense why the EPA has raised great concern regarding radon gas. Radon testing is the only way to determine if your Bloomfield home is under attack by radon, as the gas does not produce any odor, and is naked to the human eye.
Many often assume a mitigation system needs to be installed in their Bloomfield home right away, but radon testing is actually a better way of determining if this is necessary. Although we encourage having an air purification system installed regardless, it may not be necessary. Roughly one in fifteen homes has been deemed to have levels that exceed the maximum allowable amount. As you inspect for termites, treat your lawn, inspect for mold, and take all the other necessary precautions for your Bloomfield home, be sure to schedule radon testing.
Radon Testing Results Impact on Bloomfield Homes
Educate yourself on radon testing for your Bloomfield home. If you have not tested your home in a long time, a shot term test may be the best choice allowing for fast results. If you have tested your home within the past two to three years, a long term test may be done, taking roughly three months, but boasting more accurate results. No matter what your radon levels end up being, be sure to schedule radon testing for your home every two to five years.
If your tests return levels of above 4.0 Picocuries per liter, then you need to contact S.W.A.T. Environmental right away so that a custom air purification system may be designed to reduce the vapor levels in your Bloomfield home. S.W.A.T.

Environmental, you can rest assured that a certified professional is properly completing the installation.
