Bethlehem Radon Mitigation Concerns

HUD Bethlehem Radon MitigationThe recent post from S.W.A.T. Environmental brought to light the concerns of radon gas, and the recent action that HUD has taken to reduce its lung cancer risk across the United States. This recent change to the regulation has made many in the Bethlehem area confused, but S.W.A.T. Environmental is here to take out any of the confusion. We will walk you through the steps of reducing radon gas in your Bethlehem home, and making sure that your home is kept up with the most recent guidelines of HUD.

The most recent guidelines of HUD are requiring that every unit in multi-family homes be tested for radon gas. Any unit showing high levels of radon gas will be required to have Bethlehem radon mitigation conducted. This will ensure that up to 99% of all of the radon gas is removed, resulting in a healthy place for your tenants, or even yourself.

The reason radon gas has become such as big concern lately is the overwhelming number of deaths each and every year. As the second leading cause of lung cancer, radon gas has crept up as a dangerous substance that kills a substantial amount of people every year. We know that this gas is responsible for roughly one out of every seven cases of lung cancer, 20,000 deaths each year, and is found in roughly one out of every fifteen homes.

Handling Bethlehem Radon Mitigation

In order to go through this process of Bethlehem radon mitigation correctly, you must first have a radon test conducted. There are two types of radon tests that you can choose from. A short term test and a long term test. Either test will result in accurate results, but many prefer the long term test for accuracy, and the short term test in regard to getting the fastest results. Be sure to keep your doors and windows shut as much as possible during the testing period in order to make for sure that your results are accurate as possible.
