Most house and building owners in Scotrun PA feel relatively safe in their homes. Generally, air pollution is not a problem in Monroe County, Pennsylvania. However, radon gas is a significant problem in our community and is the single greatest health threat to Scotrun PA families. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the breakdown of radioactive uranium, thorium and radium. As a radioactive particle, radon is very unstable. 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 Scotrun PA. The widespread prevalence of these substances means that radon gas is an issue faced by many home and commercial property owners. 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 Testing & Mitigation in Scotrun PA 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 Scotrun 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 Scotrun PA 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 Scotrun, Pennsylvania 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, Scotrun property owners should take immediate steps to mitigate even moderate levels of radon gas in their buildings. According to Akua Conrad, radiation exposure causes more fatalities every year than any other environmental pollutant. “When a person is regularly inhaling high levels of radon, they greatly increase their risk of lung cancer. The risk is similar to that of tobacco smoke.”

At SWAT Environmental of Scotrun PA, 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.
