Testing kits can give you a reliable gauge of how much radon is in the property. If radon content is dangerously high, you might want to call in for experts to carry out an inspection and confirm those radon levels. If you have high radon content, then you’ll need to find a radon mitigation system installation company. With help from pros, you can pick the best possible system and have it installed in no time.

Know the signs

While the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says there are no known symptoms of radon poisoning if you have a persistent cough or lung problems, that could be the early signs of lung cancer, according to Livestrong. Have your home tested to see if radon poisoning is behind those persistent health problems.
