Radon is everywhere. Your children are probably breathing radon at home.

Man, you are always worked up about something. Did you read the part of the article that said that all of the school that voluntarily tested are also taking the necessary remediation steps?

Did you test your rental property's radon levels?

Must be a man-made problem. We have to get rid of all the rocks and soil now so they can't break down naturally...

You can't get rid of it as a tenant.

There are mitigation systems where you redirect radon under ground well below the house through a pipe on top of the roof.

Just do a google image searches to see how it gets into houses and how it is corrected.

What is it with you people assuming we're going to remodel/clean/etc a rental? I don't get it...

So, is that a fixture that will stay there permanently? Like a one time deal?

HEY btw, I have to go pee, I'm going to ask my landlord if as a tenant I am allowed to pee in their bathroom!!!!!!!!!

Surprisingly, radon remediation is relatively cheap.

We're just letting you know that tenants have similar risk of radon exposure as students do.

But at least schools are taking measures to correct the problem.

Haven't you said before you are interested in information that might be useful when you are no longer renting? I think that is part of why people share any relevant information on these topics when you raise them.

The other main reason is that often more than just the OP will be interested in a topic like this, and in this case that may include people who are currently owners.

Generally, you might consider being a little less rude with people who are just trying to share helpful information.
