Basement crack repair is important because cracks can lead to more than just structural and water problems. Basement and foundation cracks can allow radon gas into your home. In fact, health advocates want homeowners to have their homes tested for the potentially dangerous and cancer-causing gas.
Radon exposure is the second-leading cause of lung cancer, after smoking. Radon is caused by the breakdown of uranium when soil degrades. It has no smell, taste or color.
Radon gas comes from the ground and it can accumulate in your home. January is National Radon Action Month, so the next few weeks are the perfect time to have your home tested and to contact A1 Foundation Crack Repair for basement crack repair in Boston.
