Radon Month Reminds Homeowners of Central Kansas' Increased Risk
Updated: Apr 19
January is National Radon Action Month. Radon is a natural, invisible, radioactive gas that enters homes from the ground. Long-term exposure can cause lung cancer, making it the second leading cause (smoking is first).
High levels of radon have been found in every county in Kansas. Barton and Pawnee counties are both in Zone 1, meaning the average home has a dangerous level of radon. Since you can’t see or smell radon, having your home tested is the only way to find out if you’re breathing in high levels of this radioactive gas.
Because homes in our area are known to have high levels of radon, Comfort Pro invested in technology to test and mitigate the gas.
“We are dedicated to taking care of our neighbors throughout Central Kansas,” said Barry Stalcup, owner of Comfort Pro. “Whether the need is plumbing, heating and air, or water and air quality, we are here to help.
Winter is the ideal time to test your home because doors and windows are typically closed.
If your home's radon level is high, Comfort Pro can professionally install a radon-reduction system with a pipe and exhaust fan can be in your home to vent the gas outside.
Comfort Pro serves all of Central Kansas for your plumbing, heating and air, and water and air quality needs. With 25 trucks serving all of Central Kansas, Comfort Pro boasts efficient call response times. Learn more about Comfort Pro at www.comfortproks.com
