Most house and building owners in Pewee Valley KY feel relatively safe in their homes. Generally, air pollution is not a problem in Oldham County, Kentucky. However, radon gas is a significant problem in our community and is the single greatest health threat to Pewee Valley KY families. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the breakdown of radioactive uranium, thorium and radium. Radon gas is heavier than air, so concentrations are typically higher in the lower levels of a dwelling. However, the HVAC system and natural “stack effect” (upward draw of air as heat rised) will draw the gas upward into the upper levels of the structure. Radon is commonly detected in random air samples and is generally harmless when encountered outdoors. However, radon that rises into a structure from the soil or rock beneath the basement, crawl space, or foundation slab may become concentrated indoors and reach dangerously high levels. When this occurs, it can cause health issues, even lung cancer, in individuals who regularly occupy the structure.

Radium, thorium and uranium are naturally occurring elements that are commonly found in soil, bedrock and groundwater sources across the United States, including here in Pewee Valley KY. The widespread prevalence of these substances means that radon gas is an issue faced by many home and commercial property owners. If you live in a home contaminated with radon and you’re a smoker, quitting can help lower your chances of developing Rn-related lung cancer.

Radon Testing & Mitigation in Pewee Valley KY Homes

Radon testing is of utmost importance to ensure the safety of your home and your loved ones. Every home should be tested for radon exposure, as elevated levels can pose serious health risks. Take action today and learn more about the importance of radon testing by visiting the CDC’s website.

Without testing, most Pewee Valley property owners aren’t aware of the presence of radon gas until someone who lives in their household or works in their business develops serious health problems. Short-term tests for radon are conducted over a period of two to seven days while long-term tests measure the levels of radon for 90 days or longer. Information gathered from both types of tests is valuable in determining the extent of the gas’s potential impact on the property and its inhabitants. These tests are available in home improvement “big box” stores, such as Lowe’s and Home Depot, and in some Pewee Valley KY hardware stores. When radon levels are 4 pCi/L or higher, radon mitigation is recommended.

Tests are conducted by placing a small canister, cardboard strip, or digital measurement device in the lowest level of the structure where the gas is most likely to accumulate. The collection kit is left in one location for the specified amount of time and is then collected and processed to determine the level of radon that was present during the testing period. The residents or workers who occupy the property are asked to reduce exterior ventilation as much as possible during the test, but no other input or actions are required. We realize it can often be difficult to keep all windows closed, especially during hot Pewee Valley, Kentucky summers, but this is very important to assess accurate results. Once we’ve determined the presence and level of radon in a structure, our team can then offer a range of mitigation options that are tailored to the specific situation.

Due to radon’s radioactive characteristics and the serious health problems associated with long-term radon exposure, Pewee Valley property owners should take immediate steps to mitigate even moderate levels of radon gas in their buildings. According to Rigoverto Garland, radiation exposure causes more fatalities every year than any other environmental pollutant. “Aside from their molecular makeup, a notable difference between carbon monoxide and radon is that radon does not cause fatigue, headaches, confusion, or dizziness.”

At SWAT Environmental of Pewee Valley KY, we supply an array of radon removal options that are designed to prevent radon entry into the dwelling. Our mitigation systems operate by creating a vacuum in the soil beneath or immediately adjacent to the structure. This negative pressure draws any radon that is present upwards through the connected piping instead of entering the building’s basement, crawl space, or living area. The gas is then safely released through a vent above the roofline.
