Summer is Ending

August is beginning to wind down and we all know what that means…back to school time! If you have kids, you know that this time of year always gets busy. Between bringing your kids to school, helping them with homework, and packing lunches, there is less downtime during the week.
Although your kids will now be gone all day at school, they will be home most evenings. You want to help support your kids during this time and lower any stress that may be a result of going back to classes. One way you can do this is by ensuring their safety.
Something important to keep an eye on is radon levels; radon can cause lung cancer. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that about 1 in every 15 homes in the United States has high levels of radon. In order to keep your kids safe, make sure your home’s levels are not above 4.0 pCi/L.
In order to measure the levels of Radon in your home, you must have a professional perform a test. Contact Sam from Radon Crew at 605-336-1000 or in order to get help. Radon Crew will test your home for radon, and if levels are too high, will help you mitigate this harmful gas. It’s a smart idea to take care of this before life gets busy this fall.
