Radon levels at 3.6 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) fall well below the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recommended action level of 4 pCi/L in the US. While no absolute safe level has yet been identified for exposure, levels below 4 pCi/L generally pose less of a risk than higher ones for lung cancer development.
Noting the risk of lung cancer from exposure to radon depends on a range of factors, including concentration of radon in the home and exposure duration, as well as individual characteristics like smoking history.
Even if a radon level of 3.6 pCi/L is detected in your home, it’s still wise to take steps to mitigate its levels. Radon mitigation typically involves installing a system to vent out excess gas such as sub-slab depressurization system that uses fans to pull it from beneath foundation and ventilate it outdoors.
Reducing radon levels in your home is a vital way to protect both you and your family’s health. Regular testing for radon should be undertaken if you live in an area known for having high concentrations.
