Incalculable danger and health risk

The radon concentration of the air inside a room and the duration of the contamination are the critical factors that contribute to the risk of cancer, along with the lifespan of the decay products that bond to the very smallest particles in the air, and the amount of time they spend in the respiratory tract.

Decades can pass before the disease actually emerges. Current scientific studies show how the risk of cancer increases with the increase in the radon concentration in the indoor air. This makes effective radon sealing indispensable in the affected areas.

Radon in living spaces

Radon can enter living spaces from a variety of sources, including the ground beneath the building, the construc-tion materials, the ambient air and water.A key influencing factor is how well a building is protected against radon in the areas that come into contact with the ground (e.g. cellar walls and floors).

Radon finds its way in through cracks, gaps and tiny openings in the foundations and walls, as well as creeping in through cable and pipe passageways. If there is inadequate protection, it diffuses through the construction materials. So far there is no indication of a threshold below which radon would be harmless. Therefore, the radon concentration should be reduced as much as possible by radon sealing in all dwellings.
