Radon Action Month in Kalamazoo, MI

Radon Awareness Month Kalamazoo MichiganResidents of Kalamazoo are preparing for radon action month which is fast approaching. Every January, Kalamazoo celebrates radon action month by doing something to help with the prevention of deaths caused by radon gas. Many families installed mitigation systems last year to their Kalamazoo homes. Killing roughly 20,000 people each year in the United States, there is still much work that has to be done in Kalamazoo, and nationwide, for the prevention of deaths from radon gas.

There are many things you may do during radon action month to help prevent deaths from radon, but before you take any action you should get a basic understanding of radon gas. Radon forms naturally in your soil from broken down uranium. In a gas form, it may enter your Kalamazoo home through the foundation, or a number of other places. Regardless of how it enters, it is extremely important that a mitigation system is installed to reduce your levels. Kalamazoo residents may be at a higher risk than other regions due to higher concentrations of radon gas in specific areas.

There are many ways that you may take action to protect your family during radon action month. The first, and possibly most important way is to have a professional test your Kalamazoo home to diagnose whether or not your home has unsafe levels of radon gas.
