Radon in the home
Radon is the largest contributor to average human exposure to radiation and is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. It therefore makes sense to protect the health of residents, especially within their own four walls.
Tip: Regular shock ventilation can reduce the radon concentration in the short term.
Have radon measurements taken
The indoor radon concentration depends on many factors, but mainly on the subsoil and the construction method of the building. Only a measurement gives certainty about the radon concentration in an existing building. The measurement detectors are sent by mail - carrying out the measurement is simple.
If elevated radon concentrations have been detected, remedial action can often be taken with relatively simple measures. Information on this topic can be found on this page under "Remediation measures for existing buildings". Advice from specially trained building experts can also help in the selection of measures. Take responsibility for your health and that of your family.
Simple radon protection measures should be included in the planning of a new building or renovation work on an existing building. Preventive radon protection is cheaper, more effective and simpler than subsequent radon remediation measures.
