Radonova, Inc will participate in the Village of Lombard summer blood drive on Tuesday, June 13, 2023 by giving out free radon test kits to all donors – to get a head start on World Blood Donor Day which is Wednesday, June 14.

Radon is the #1 cause of lung cancer in nonsmokers and the #2 cause of lung cancer nationwide, according to the EPA. Radon exposure is responsible for almost 1,500 lung cancer cases in Illinois each year with approximately 43% of homes in Illinois having high radon levels, according to the 2023 Illinois State Radon Report Card published by the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists. Smokers who are also exposed to radon have an even higher chance of suffering from lung cancer.

Radon is an odorless, colorless gas that forms when the uranium in natural stone below a home or building decays. The gas produces harmful radioactive atoms that become caught in the lungs when people breathe. Radon seeps into homes and buildings through cracks and by pushing through the concrete in foundations, and crawl spaces.

Radon levels found in homes can vary depending on ventilation, construction methods, geography, and weather. Radon levels can also vary from home to home within the same neighborhood and can change from season to season as the soil around a home grows drier or wetter. The only way to know the radon level in a home or building is to test. If radon levels are high, then radon mitigation systems can be installed by certified radon professionals to reduce radon levels to below the actionable limit – sometimes by as much as 99%.

“Because radon levels fluctuate over the seasons, testing for radon during the summer months is just as important as testing during the winter months. We hope providing radon test kits in June will encourage our community to test their homes for radon this summer,” says Zan Jones, Vice President for Sales and Marketing for Radonova, Inc.

Radonova, Inc. would like to thank the Village of Lombard for improving radon awareness in Lombard and helping to prevent radon induced lung cancer. Through collective action the community can help ensure healthy indoor air quality and reduce lung cancer in Illinois.
