January is National Radon Month. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer ...after smoking. Western PA has a 58% radon test failure rate, a very high rate as compared to many other areas. We will do radon testing at a discount for the month.
If you wonder why the radon level is high in this area, it is the geology deep below the ground. The same dense rocks, which were the ocean floor millennia ago and contain Marcellus oil and gas, also contain Uranium. Uranium decays into Radium, Radium decays into Radon which then comes up through the ground into our homes.
