The Risks of Home Radon in Rockville, Gaithersburg, Silver Spring, & Nearby

Protecting your home with reliable radon testing & mitigation

Radon gas in Maryland

Radon mitigation systems are typically installed inside the crawl space or basement and force the gas out of the home.

As a carcinogenic, radioactive gas, home radon causes thousands of deaths each year. The Surgeon General has even warned against radon, as it is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. If you smoke and your home has high levels of radon, your risk of cancer is especially high.

Radon is a naturally-occurring substance that comes from uranium breaking down in the soil and water beneath the home. Radon can get into any type of building through the stack effect - and once radon is trapped inside the home, the gas will build up to hazardous amounts.

That is why Airwiz Radon provides reliable radon testing services. If levels are high, we can customize a radon mitigation system to your home.

Why should you control home radon levels?

Radon exposure is one of the leading causes of lung cancer in the United States, second only to smoking. To date, estimates show that 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths occur in the U.S. annually. If left to worsen, radon poisoning could lead to a persistent cough that doesn't improve, difficulty breathing, chest pains, coughing up of blood, hoarseness, and recurring respiratory infections such as pneumonia or bronchitis.

Radon is also an odorless and invisible gas, making it undetectable to the human senses. Despite the danger that home radon presents, many homeowners have not scheduled radon testing services. Checking radon levels is easy and affordable and should be done in every home.
