Apulia Station, NY – Thousands of people in Central New York could be saved from radon-related lung cancer by testing for and then, if needed, installing a radon mitigation system. Radon is a cancer-causing gas that can seep into homes, businesses, and schools and is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers.

Research confirms that breathing low levels of radon can lead to lung cancer.” (www.epa.gov/radon)
To raise awareness of radon, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designated January as Radon Action Month in 1999. Why January? The best time to test is when you have “closed-house conditions”. Closed house conditions are when the windows are closed and less likely to be used, and less traffic in and out of your home. In addition to raising radon awareness, this month of action is meant to encourage people to get their homes, workspaces, and schools tested for radon.
Woodford Bros., Inc. is the local leader in radon. Woodford Brother's radon experts can help determine if a building’s radon levels are above the EPAs recommended 4.0 pCi/L, and if so, can install an aesthetically pleasing and affordable radon mitigation system.
Radon Action Month is a collaborative effort between the EPA and other national organizations dedicated to lowering radon exposure, like the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST), of which Woodford Bros., Inc. is a member.
Owner, Tom Woodford Jr. states that testing and mitigating will help save lives here and all over the United States. “Through our continued work to increase awareness about radon’s dangers, testing homes and mitigating homes, I look forward to the day when we can eliminate lung cancer deaths caused by radon exposure.”
