Bloomfield, Michigan Concerned with Lung Cancer Rates
Lung cancer is often thought to be only related to the amount of cigarettes smoked, or secondhand smoke someone is exposed to. While this makes a lot of logical sense, new development and research is showing that this is not always the case, and Bloomfield residents have a lot more to worry about. Recent studies show that 16% of all lung cancer cases are actually caused by radon gas, meaning that radon gas is one of the top ten concerns for doctors.
Imagine going through your life practicing good health, eating the right food, and exercising regularly, only to be diagnosed with lung cancer because a radon gas mitigation system was not installed on your Bloomfield home. While pesticides and chemicals added to foods are highly debated in regard to their long term health risks, radon gas has been proven to cause lung cancer. To break it down in simple form, radon gas is radioactive, and we all know that radiation causes cancer. It would be smart to even assume that lung cancer may not be the only health concern with radon gas. As science and research develop, we might likely find new health effects associated with radon gas which we did not know before.
Radon Gas Mitigation for Bloomfield Residents
Bloomfield residents can take control of their home and health with a radon gas mitigation system. Radon gas mitigation can reduce the levels of radon by as much as 99%. To get a better idea of where radon gas comes from, let me explain it briefly. Radon forms in the soil from broken down Uranium. Depending on the concentrations of Uranium, your Bloomfield home may have large concentrations of radon gas. The only way to determine the levels is through radon testing. Radon may enter your home in a variety of ways through the foundation, water supply, and others. Often radon goes unnoticed as it cannot be seen or smelled.
S.W.A.T. Environmental has the years of experience and knowledge to properly install a radon gas mitigation system and reduce the levels of radon gas by as much as 99%. While you may assume that radon may not be a threat to your home, as stated previously, a test is the only way to properly know the levels in your Bloomfield home.
Many radon gas mitigation companies do not have the same amount of years of experience or certifications as S.W.A.T. Environmental. When dealing with radon it is important to know you are dealing with your health and the health of loved ones. Do not risk your health with a cut rate company.
