Radon is part of the natural decay of what was originally uranium in the soil. Forty percent of buildings in Illinois have high levels of radon. It is colorless and undetectable to the naked eye. Radon gas is a radioactive class A carcinogen that can cause lung cancer when individuals are exposed to high levels over a period of years. It is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon can build up to dangerous levels in any type or age of building, so it’s essential for commercial property owners to invest in radon mitigation services.
The Illinois Emergency Management Agency recommends radon testing of all Illinois buildings at least every two years. This radon testing recommendation includes office buildings, churches, warehouses, and retail spaces. Buildings that cater to children and the elderly for long periods should be tested, including hospitals, assisted living facilities, day cares, schools and foster homes. Apartment complexes, townhomes, condos, and other residential rental real estate additionally often have mortgage company or governmental regulations requiring radon testing. Most building owners have a duty of protection to provide a safe environment for their building’s occupants otherwise they face a liability exposure.
If radon levels are above 4 pCi/L, it’s important to seek professional mitigation services to reduce the long-term risk of lung cancer.
