Short-Term Health Effects of Radon Exposure

If you have recently discovered radon in your home or workplace, you may wonder whether it is causing you any health problems. The good news is that at the levels typically found within buildings, short-term radon exposure has never been linked to any adverse health effects.

Install a Mitigation System If Necessary

You do not have to worry about experiencing any pain, rashes, gastrointestinal problems, headaches or other symptoms due to short-term radon exposure. Even with the presence of radon, you should feel as fit and healthy as you normally would. Nonetheless, you still want to avoid long-term exposure to high levels of radon. Thus, it is important to install a mitigation system if the amount of radon is above the EPA’s acceptable level of 4 pCi/l.
