Radon in Schools
A nationwide survey of radon levels in schools estimates that nearly one in five has at least one schoolroom with a short-term radon level above the action level of 4 pCi/L (pico Curies per liter) – the level at which EPA recommends that schools take action to reduce the level. EPA estimates that more than seventy thousand (70,000) school rooms in use today have high short-term radon levels.
What is radon you ask?
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that seeps into buildings substrate and through its foundation. As it enters the building it becomes integrated into the breathable air, putting anyone in the building at risk. In some cases, well water may be a source of radon. Overtime, this exposure can cause radon induced lung cancer. The only way to know if you are at risk is to have a test conducted by a professional.
