Radon is the second-leading cause of lung cancer. Second only to smoking. Because there is no known safe level of exposure to radon, the EPA recommends mitigation for radon levels above 4 pCi/L. The average indoor radon level is estimated to be about 1.3 pCi/L, and about 0.4 pCi/L of radon is normally found in the outside air. The U.S. Congress has set a long-term goal that indoor radon levels be no more than outdoor levels. I’ll install my testing equipment for a period of at least 48-hours and report the results.

InterNACHI Certified Aging-In-Place Professional
About This Badge:

“Aging in place” is the phenomenon describing senior citizens’ ability to live independently in their homes for as long as possible. Those who age in place will not have to move from their present residence in order to secure necessary support services in response to their changing needs.

As the baby boomers age, the 60+ population will spike from roughly 45 million in recent years to more than 70 million by 2020. Research shows that baby boomers’ expectations of how they will receive care differ from that of their parents’ generation. Overwhelmingly, they will seek care in their own homes and will be less likely to move into congregate living settings.
