WHY IS RADON IMPORTANT?

HEALTHY AIR IS OUR BUSINESS & YOUR HEALTH IS OUR GOAL

Radon is a dangerous gas that could be lurking in your home without your knowledge. It has been blamed for 20,000 yearly deaths from lung cancer, and is currently the second-leading cause of lung cancer behind smoking. How can you be sure that your family isn’t at risk? A professional radon testing can tell you if the radon levels in your home are dangerous.

Radon gas forms as the result of uranium decaying in soil. The radioactive gas is released from the soil and travels upward into the air. Radon becomes harmful when it travels through a house and becomes trapped inside. The gas builds up and can become a carcinogen if it is not removed. The leading radon mitigation methods that can be used are best left to professional radon mitigation contractors.

These are all the air quality threats that we can help you with:

Asbestos and Mold Testing

Worried that your older home or business may contain dangerous asbestos or mold in the walls? Call us here at Simon Air Quality for superior mold and asbestos testing services. 

Why Is Asbestos Dangerous?

Not everything that is natural is safe. Asbestos is a naturally occurring but dangerous fiber. It is so tiny that it can imbed itself in your lungs and cause irritation and damage. As a material that doesn’t burn, it became common to use in building materials such as insulation before the 1980s.

Unfortunately, it has now been discovered that exposure to asbestos can cause serious health problems. For example, mesothelioma cancer, asbestos lung cancer, pleural plaques, and asbestosis. Surprisingly, the U.S. government still hasn’t banned the use of asbestos. However, few people use it anymore because of the dangers. 

Instead, most people are concerned with removing it from current structures to keep the people in their homes and businesses safe.

Why Mold is Dangerous 

Toxic mold growing in the walls can have a detrimental effect on your health. Do you or anyone in your household seem to get sick often? Do you struggle with allergy-like symptoms even when it’s not allergy season?

This could be because of mold growing in your home and negatively affecting the air quality. If you suspect this to be a problem in your home, you should call for mold testing, inspection, and removal immediately. If mold is found, the next step is to schedule mold removal for clean air in your home once more.   

Why Test for Asbestos?

If asbestos is left alone, it generally remains harmless. However, over time the material containing asbestos can begin to crumble or otherwise break down. This can lead to potential exposure to the tiny fibers that can embed themselves in your lungs. 

The popularity of DIY projects is also raising the rate of asbestos exposure. If you plan to start knocking down walls in a home that was built before the 1980s, it’s a good idea to have it tested for asbestos before you begin. 

You should always have a professional remove asbestos. Even one-time exposure can leave lasting consequences.

Professional Asbestos and Mold Testing You Can Count On

Asbestos is harmless as long as it is not disturbed, but if you suspect that it was used in your home, don’t touch it. And don’t risk it if you’re unsure. Mold doesn’t need to be disturbed to cause problems in the air quality and your health. If you suspect either problem in your home, call us for professional mold testing to ensure your and your family’s safety.
