Why Radon Testing and Mitigation Is So Important

Did You Know?

Did you know that radon gas is the second-leading cause of lung cancer after smoking? The health risks of long-term exposure to radon are lasting and debilitating, which is why it’s crucial to keep it out of indoor spaces. Experts like Nordic Inspections for radon mitigation can help prevent those risks from impacting your life.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all of North Dakota (ND) is classified as Zone 1, signaling that the entire state has the highest potential for elevated radon gas levels.

This is particularly true in ND, where 63 percent of homes have elevated radon levels that are above the U.S. threshold for taking action. According to the EPA, levels that exceed 4.0 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) should be addressed with radon mitigation solutions.

Why You Need Radon Testing & Mitigation

The average radon levels in Cass and Clay County are 5.4 and 5.8 Picocuries per liter of air (pCi/L)*.

The EPA recommends mitigation** for levels greater or equal to 4.0 pCi/L, but also recommend to consider radon mitigation on levels between 2.0 and 4.0 pCi/L.

*One pCi/l means that in one liter of air there will be 2.2 radioactive disintegrations each minute. For example, at 4 pCi/l there will be approximately 12,672 radioactive disintegrations in one liter of air, during a 24-hour period.
**Radon mitigation is any process used to reduce radon concentrations in the breathing zones of occupied buildings.
