Radon Gas in Utah

Radon Gas in Utah is a big problem that way to many General Contractors over look. It is time to start taking this issue seriously before building new homes and remodeling existing homes.

According to an article done by KSL a couple of years ago, radon is present in one of three homes. Because you cannot smell radon gas, the only way to determine if it is present in your home is to have a professional test done.

With all the new advances in energy efficient building products and methods our homes are becoming more air tight. This allows the radon gas levels to increase in our homes without even knowing about it.

Radon gas is the second-leading cause of lung cancer nationwide, accounting for an estimated 15,000 to 22,000 lung cancer deaths each year, according to the American Lung Association.
