When uranium 238 is decomposed in any area it releases a gas known as radon and this gas is released into the air which is then inhaled by us and it will cause us a lung cancer from which we can die. How do the previous statements sound? Interesting or scary? We know it is scary and you would in a tension now that how can you save yourself from this mass destruction. How can you save your children and elderly parents who are weak and their immune systems can bear this much damage? Some people claim that there is no way to escape from the radon gases as these are presented everywhere. Yes! We are surrounded by cost of radon mitigation gas particles and we do breathe it regularly but that is open air. The concentration of radon gas in open air is not that much that it can kill you instantly. You can survive it until and unless its presence is 4.0 pCi/L and in case you have smokers in your family and this much radon is present in your air then for sure it is an alarming situation.
What is Radon Gas and how radon gas is dangerous:
Radon gas is a naturally occurring gas which is released when the uranium is decay and as uranium has the strongest radiations the gas released by it also have the same amount of radioactive ions presented in it. These ions are negatively charged and ions are absorbed by our body. When this foreign element of uranium is entered in our body it is stored there and it starts to corrode our system by creating tumor cells. It can cause cancer in any part of the body but usually, lungs are affected the most because we inhale and all of the radon gas is entered into our lungs and starts to settle down in our windpipe and bronchi’s. Danger level of the radon gas is the topmost and it is recommended for all of us to use the proper measure to eliminate radon gas presence from your surroundings.
How to perform radon mitigation and save our lives?
Radon mitigation is a process which done with the use of tools and equipment’s through which radon gas is removed from the air and other parts of the environment. It is known that when radon gas is presented to you it usually settle down in the building foundation and areas which has little or no ventilation. One of the effective and cheapest ways to get rid of this gas is by installing mitigation systems at your houses. These usually include ventilation systems such as sub-slab depressurization systems. It is discovered that a very high concentration of radon gas is found in the drainage area of your house so you also have to install a proper ventilation system over there to prevent the storage. The cost depends on the size of ventilation system installed; seek the help of experts in the installation process.
