Unlike many of our daily actions, breathing is an activity that our body carries out independently, without having to think about it. Similarly, we tend not to think about the quality of the air we inhale. Making sure you breathe good quality air is essential for our health.Discover more +
From an early age, we know that breathing clean air is good for you.
Whether it is pure mountain air or salty sea air, breathing deeply is a feeling of real mental and physical benefit.
On average, an adult breathes about 11 thousand liters of air per minute: this is why the quality of the air is very important, both indoors and outdoors.
Trying to keep levels of pollutants below a certain threshold is of the utmost importance for one’s well-being.
Even in the home environment it is essential to take care of the quality of air.
In closed environments, many harmful substances can be present.
The use of systems that monitor the right balance and air quality can be the ideal solution to protect the health of all family members.
Radon gas is a colorless and odorless noble gas: essentially invisible. This natural radioactive gas is found in small quantities in the soil. When dispersed in the air, the gas remains at very low concentrations, but inside a building it becomes dangerous: in fact, when it accumulates in enclosed spaces it can reach high and consequently harmful concentrations.Discover more +
We all know that exposure to pollutants released into the atmosphere, such as exhaust gas and fine dust, is harmful to our health.
On the contrary, there is still a lack of awareness of the risks deriving from other equally harmful but less known substances, such as radon gas.
Radon is a radioactive noble gas present in the air that comes from the decay of uranium in the soil and construction materials.
Accumulation occurs mostly in indoor environments, where in some cases it reaches concentrations capable of posing a non-negligible risk to the health of the exposed person.
In fact, radon can adhere to the dust present in the air we breathe and be carried inside the pulmonary alveoli. It decays in about 4 days, emitting ionizing particles which are themselves radioactive.
The World Health Organization has included radon in Group 1 of substances with evidence of carcinogenicity, the highest level. But what makes radon particularly insidious is its odorless and invisible presence, which cannot be perceived except through instrumental measurements.
Tackling radon also means tackling fine dust. In both cases we are dealing with invisible enemies to our health. But in recent times, the fight against fine dust has taken on an even greater urgency, with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.Discover more +
Atmospheric particulate matter has been at the center of attention for decades, especially due to the challenge it represents in large urban centers. But in recent times the fight against fine dust has taken on an even greater urgency, with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. A recent study by Italian researchers has shown that PM (particulate matter, fine dust) was expected to provide a stimulus and accelerate the epidemic’s virulent spread.
It is certainly no coincidence that the “red zones” in Italy, with the greatest rate of spread of the infection, are those with the highest concentrations of atmospheric particulate. The fine particles, capable of spreading into the bronchi, trachea, pulmonary alveoli and blood, are responsible for about 70,000 deaths a year in Italy alone. Monitoring and cleaning the quality of the air we breathe, in outdoor environments but also in homes and workplaces, means protecting our health and that of our loved ones.
We are used to looking at the weather to know “what the weather is like”, now with Radoff we can find out at any moment “what the air is like”.
Monitoring and cleaning the quality of the air, both indoors and outdoors, is fundamental for an individual’s well-being.
Clean air = a better life: a simple and essential equation.
Even international guidelines recommend checking for the presence of radon inside buildings.
On January 17, 2014, the new European Directive on protection from ionizing radiation was published in the Official Journal of the European Union with the aim of preventing, protecting and safeguarding the health of the population, limiting their exposure from any source of radon.
The new Directive is the product of a review process, which lasted years, destined to revolutionize the national legislations on radiation protection of all Member
States of the European Union.
Directive 2013/59/EURATOM imposes the obligation to monitor radon gas in all buildings (homes, workplaces, schools, public buildings) and the obligation to implement remediation solutions for concentrations above the permitted limits.
In Italy in July 2020, the delegation bill for the adoption of the Directive was passed by the Senate. Some regions have already started to act autonomously with regional laws already in force: Apulia (Regional Law 30/2016) and Campania (Regional Law 8 July 2019, n.13).
Regional Law 3 November 2016, No. 30, the «ANTI-RADON» law of the Apulia region, makes it mandatory to measure the levels of radon gas for buildings open to the public.
· Measurement is the responsibility of the business operators (owners or renters)
· The measurement tasks must last for one year, in two semesters
· Failure to comply with the legal obligation leads to the revocation of the establishment’s compliance with safety standards
· 300 Bq/mc is the threshold level of concentration of radon gas in the environment, beyond which it is necessary to proceed with remediation
We have revolutionized the way we breathe.
We did it after six years of research and three patents, bringing together talents from different disciplines with a single, big dream: to defeat an invisible enemy. Today we present to the world a range of innovative solutions to protect you and your loved ones from radon, but also to change the quality of your breath and your life.
It is the goal of a working group that believed in the possibility for an Italian startup to reach an ambitious objective. Inside there is research, passion, a pinch of courage and the desire to move forward even when it seemed impossible.
