Radon Gas… Don’t Take A Chance!!!
STOP infiltration of unhealthy RADON GAS and MOISTURE!
Radon gas to some degree is present in every home, and , incredibly, one out of every three homes tested in the United States have elevated levels above what the U.S. E.P.A. action limit.
Radon gas is an invisible, odorless gas that is radioactive, occurring naturally from decaying uranium beneath the earth’s surface. This radioactive gas known as “Radon” usually escapes harmlessly into the earth’s atmosphere. Radon gas travels up through the ground by the path of least resistance. This may also be referred to as the “escape path”. If your home was built over an “escape path” or by digging out the crawl space or basement, creating a new “escape path, your home could have dangerously high levels of radon gas.
How Radon gas can effect you: As Radon gas is inhaled, microscopic particles are trapped in the lungs, these particles break down over time releasing a burst of radiation into the lungs that damages the lung tissues ( according to the U.S. E.P.A., Radon Gas is the number one leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers ).
The “STS Pro Shield Plus” Liner System can permanently stop and prevent radon gas from passing through an exposed crawl space floor and entering your home’s living environment. Eliminating the #1 source from which radon gas can enter your home creates a healthier living environment for you and your family.
