Radioactive radon: affordable radiation meters now at tink

You smell, taste and don’t see it. But it is radioactive and very dangerous in high concentrations. We’re talking about radon. The gas is created when naturally occurring uranium decays in the soil and occurs generally everywhere in Germany. Because of its low concentration, it is not dangerous outdoors. In contrast, it can accumulate indoors and have a carcinogenic effect over a longer period of time. The Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) expects 2,000 deaths per year in Germany due to excessive radon exposure. For non-smokers, it is probably the most common cause of lung cancer, said Bernd Hoffmann from the BfS Wirtschaftswoche.

Where radon pollution is highest

The gas seeps into the interior of buildings primarily through cracks in the floor and – in the case of rooms that are below the surface of the earth – in the walls and pipes. Basement rooms are particularly susceptible, as can the ground floor. Concentration usually decreases on higher floors. How intense the radon exposure is also depends heavily on where you live. The Radon map of the BfS gives more detailed information on the extent to which the districts and urban districts are affected. But if you want to know exactly, you have to measure yourself on site!

Measure radon and air quality with Airthings Wave

This works reliably with the intelligent radon monitors from Airthings. This allows you to monitor the values ​​over a longer period of time to see whether and how you and your family are exposed to this dangerous gas. In addition, the smart measuring devices offer additional sensors to measure the air quality. These include, for example, CO2 pollution, air humidity and temperature, air pressure and so-called airborne chemicals. The latter evaporate from everyday products in our environment and can trigger asthma, for example.
