Radon In Utah Businesses
Most people consider radon gas to be a problem with personal homes because that’s where we spend most of our time. However, owners of commercial property should not ignore the risk of radon gas in commercial buildings.
Many employees spend eight or more hours a day working in the office and if radon levels are high, it could put them at risk for lung cancer.
Radon is the #1 cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and the EPA estimates that over 21,000 people die per year from lung cancer caused by radon.
Employers should ensure their workplace is safe and is a healthy environment. Safety precautions include testing and radon mitigation when necessary.
What Other Commercial Buildings Should Be Tested For Radon?
Radon in schools and nursing homes can also be a problem. Children can be affected by radon because their bodies are not fully developed. Buildings that should be tested include:
- Apartment Complexes
- Daycare Centers
- Residential Care facilities
- Business Parks
When Should Commercial Buildings Reduce Radon Levels?
The EPA has declared 4.0 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) is the residential radon level in which homeowners should take action. This means installing a radon mitigation system to reduce the radon levels to a safe level.
Having 4.0 pCi/L is as much risk for lung cancer as smoking 8 cigarettes per day. Because radon gas has no smell and you can’t see it, the only way to know if your levels are high is with a radon test.
Commercial and residential radon mitigation systems are similar; however, the size of the building generally needs a different strategy than a residential home.
