Any exposure to this harmful gas has some risk of causing lung cancer. The lower the radon level in you home, the lower your family’s risk of lung cancer. The amount of radon in the air is measured in “picocuries of radon per liter of air” or “pCi/L”. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set a long-term goal that indoor radon levels be no more than outdoor levels; about 0.4 pCi/L of radon is normally found in the outside air. EPA recommends fixing your home if the radon levels are 4 pCi/L or higher. With today’s technology, radon levels in most homes can be reduced to 2 pCi/L or below so you may also want to consider fixing your home if your levels are between 2 and 4 pCi/L.
