Bluegrass Radon Testing

Eliminating Lung Cancer caused by Radon one test at a time!

Radon is a radioactive gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water and gets into the air you breathe. Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation.

You can't see, smell or taste radon gas. Even if you are breathing it in at a high level, there are no symptoms of radon poisoning. Exposure to high levels of radon over time puts you at risk of developing lung cancer. If you smoke, this puts you at a higher risk.

Signs and symptoms of lung cancer from radon exposure can include:
• Persistent cough
• Hoarseness
• Wheezing
• Shortness of breath
• Coughing up blood
• Chest pain
• Frequent infections like bronchitis and pneumonia
• Loss of appetite
• Weight loss
• Fatigue
According to the American Cancer Society, smoking cigarettes is the leading cause of lung cancer in the United States and radon is the second leading cause. It is estimated that about 20,000 lung cancer deaths per year are caused by radon exposure.
