Joel joins Bob & Eric on their radio show to discuss radon gas and radon testing. Let’s all live #RADONFREE.
The Portland Metro area rests in a radon hot zone. That means every day we Portlandians are unknowingly exposed to cancer causing alpha particles trapped in our homes, schools and workplaces. Environmental works is hard at work investing our own money and resources to build awareness about the dangers of radon gas exposure and to help our fellow citizens discover and eradicate the radon threat. Radon exposure is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, responsible for the deaths of more than 21,000 of us each year. Yet, it’s simple and relatively inexpensive to fix.
THE #RADONFREE PROGRAM
Environmental Works has purchased tens of thousands of DIY test kits for mass distribution to the Residential Sector. Our test kits are being provided FREE with no obligation to us whatsoever. We're doing this because we want you to know if you are being exposed to radon. You can't see, smell or taste radon gas. The only way to know is to test and we want nothing to stand in your way.
DISTRIBUTION OF TEST KITS
In an effort to reach the highest number of people, we distribute test kits through neighborhood associations, HOA's and business districts. Getting the word out and organizing successful distribution campaigns require a high degree of collaboration. Neighborhoods eligible to receive free test kits are decided by a lottery system. If you would like your district or neighborhood to become eligible for selection, contact us.
Environmental Works has teamed up with non-profit organizations that help finance mitigation systems for those in need. We also work with media outlets and community leaders to inform the public and distribute test kits in an orderly way. If you are interested in becoming a partner, we want to hear from you.
USING THE DIY TEST KITS
Our DIY test kits are easy to use and come with simple instructions. To get started open the package and set it down in the lowest living area of your home. Let it sit for the next three days. Make sure to comply with closed house conditions for the most accurate results. After the three day period fill out the information, pack up the test kit and put it in the outgoing mail. You don't have to worry about a stamp, because we paid the postage for you. You'll receive results within 5-7 business days. We are notified of your results and will provide you with a free mitigation quote if dangerous radon levels are found. However, you are under no obligation to use Environmental Works as your radon mitigation service provider. The important thing, to us, is that you live #RADONFREE.
JOIN THE CAUSE
Our community will benefit immensely if you join the public conversation. Use the #RADONFREE in your social media posts when you've received a DIY test kit, if your home tested clean or when you've mitigated your radon problem. Join the #RADONFREE group on Facebook, and post your #RADONFREE stories on Twitter, Youtube, Instagram and Linkedin.
