Radon - the invisible risk

Odorless and tasteless, radon is a radioactive noble gas that poses a high-risk potential, especially in radon precautionary areas. Released from soils, it can accumulate in buildings and reach health-threatening concentrations. After smoking, radon is the most frequent cause of lung cancer.

For Germany, studies assume 2,000 to 6,000 annual deaths due to the consequences of radon exposure*.

By comparison, 3,059 people died in traffic accidents in 2019**.

This makes it clear: the risk from radon is very real.

Radon remediation for ideal radiation protection & a reduced health risk

An excessive radon concentration doesn’t just threaten health. It also creates legal and economic risks, especially in radon precautionary areas: Property owners, for example, face significant losses in value when selling their property. Employers are confronted with liability risks. Schools or administrative buildings would probably have to close if radon levels could not be adequately reduced.

But there is no need for that, because there are reliable methods for radon remediation that can effectively reduce the concentration. We will be happy to advise you about radon protection, from risk assessment to the optimal remediation solution.

New maps of radon exposure are currently being compiled for all German states.
