Why it’s very important to test the air quality in your home!
Did you know that radon causes more fatalities in the U.S than carbon monoxide and fires combined? This is why it’s more important than ever to test the air quality in your home.
If you’ve purchased a home then you have heard about radon testing. Radon is an odorless and colorless gas that naturally occurs but not many folks understand the potential threat it causes. Considering Philadelphia has some of the highest radon levels in the U.S, testing for radon is more important than ever. Especially considering that many new and updated homes have finished basements where radon levels are at the highest. In fact inhaling radon decay has proven to cause lung cancer over time.
So what’s the solution? Well just like having a smoke or carbon monoxide detector, having a radon tester should also be present in your home or workplace. Consider this, Americans spend 90% of their time indoors. So why not ensure that the air you’re breathing is of the highest quality? One great product we found is the Airthings Wave Plus. It tests for radon and other chemicals and is super simple to set up and use. Airthings Wave Plus even works on your smartphone or computer so you can always be up-to-date with your air quality. This device is easy to read with green, yellow, and red indicators to help warn you of any danger.
For those looking to learn more about this product or to check it out, this Saturday April 13th Airthings will be at the Home Depot in King of Prussia (181 S Gulph Rd.) from 11-3. Guests will be given demonstrations as well as learn more about Airthings products and initiatives. So if you’re serious about your air quality and health, definitely make sure you attend this event.
