Shakopee, MN (PRWEB) December 13, 2013
Quality Heating and Air Services, Inc., a ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) contractor that provides heater repair in Shakopee MN, now offers in-home radon testing and removal. Radon, an odorless radioactive gas that can seep into a home through floor cracks, construction joints, and the water supply, is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States, according to the U.S. Surgeon General.
Testing is the only way to detect the presence of radon. The Minnesota Department of Health reports that two in five homes in the state have radon levels that pose a significant health risk, and nearly 80% of Minnesota counties are rated as high radon zones.
Quality Heating and Air offers two types of testing: short term, which tests the air over a short period of time – usually 48-72 hours; and long term, which tests the air and averages the levels over a longer period of time – sometimes for up to a year. A report above 4 picocuries per liter of air (or pCi/L) is considered unsafe, and the home should be treated for radon removal. A certified Quality Heating and Air technician performs the test and can perform several methods of removal, if necessary.
