Mayor Thomas C. Jardim, of Westfield, said the recent National Research Councils report of the sixth Committee on Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation (BEIR VI) renews the publics focus on health risks because it identifies radon as second only to smoking as the leading cause of lung cancer.
The report estimates radon exposure causes 12 percent of lung cancer deaths and that as many as one- third of these could he avoided by reducing radon concentrations in homes.
Radon concentration is measured in units called picoCuries per liter of air (pCi/ L). If indoor levels are at 4 pCi/ L or above, it is recommended that the home be fixed to reduce radon exposure.
"Because radon is invisible and odorless ignoring this hazard in our home is easy," Mayor Jardim said
Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally when uranium and radium break down in the soil and in rock formations. Radon gas seeps up through the soil and finds it way into homes through cracks in the foundation and openings around pipes and drains.
"Because it lacks physical characteristics, the only way to detect the presence of radon gas is to measure the level in a home by a special test," Mayor Jardim explained.
Inexpensive test kits may be purchased at many hardware stores and local health departments. A radon measurement business that is New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) certified can also perform testing.
There are two basic methods for reducing radon levels. The first is to reduce radon entering the house by sealing openings and cracks in floors and walls to reduce the possible entry points. Smaller cracks that are not so easily detected can be handled through other mitigation procedures, especially sub- slab ventilation, which diverts the radon that typically accumulates underneath a building's foundation.
For all radon mitigation work, whether done by an NJPEP certified mitigation business or a homeowner,
Mayor Jardim Urges Testing Of Homes for Radon Levels
a post remediation test should be performed to learn if radon levels have been sufficiently lowered. A radon test should also be performed every two years to ensure that the mitigation efforts remain effective.
House repairs to eliminate radon gas can be simple and affordable, starting at just a few dollars for do- ityourself applied sealers, to a professionally installed mitigation system, ranging in cost between $500 and $2,000. Names of measurement and mitigation business are listed in local telephone directories under "Radon," Mayor Jardim explained.
"The first step to take in protecting your family from this environmental risk is to test your home. If elevated radon levels are detected, you should undertake mitigation to eliminate the hazard," Mayor Jardim said.
For further information or assistance, or to obtain a free radon information packet of useful material including a complete list of NJDEP certified radon measurement and mitigation businesses, please call the NJDEP's toll free Radon Information Line at (800) 648- 0394 or visit the NJDEP radon web page at www. state. nj. us/ dep/ rpp/ ber/ radon/ rnindex. htm.
