In fact, According to Radon, all natural products, especially stone, minerals, and sand, contain trace amounts of naturally occurring radioactive minerals that can produce measurable amounts of radiation and sometimes radon gas. The site goes on to say that this includes all concrete products, clay bricks, most non-plastic plates and dishes, coal and the fly ash produced in coal-fired power plants, natural gas (contains radon), phosphate fertilizers used in your garden. By nature, granite has some inherent level of radon, and the question is how high that level might be. Because high levels of radon in the home can truly be a hazard to health, we quote directly: After having performed tens of thousands of samples and never finding a granite counter top that produces hazardous amounts of radon gas, Air Chek, Inc has decided that it is a disservice to our customers to offer this product. We instead encourage you to look for a much more likely problem; radon in your home. After much research and testing, it has been determined that granite building materials have a minimal and acceptable amount of radon.
This is exactly what I needed to kick start my quest to organize my home! Taking the time to set up functional storage space, labeling things, and making sure everything fits in the best way possible — these are all simple steps you can take to organize your home and ease the stress. We all have busy lives, so having items be easily accessible and ready when you need them is just one small step you can take in simplifying your life.
Granite is heavy and quartz can be even heavier. Professional installation is highly recommended for quartz countertops in kitchens for a long list of reasons that go beyond its weight. They are a big investment and installers should be certified to mount the specific brand of quartz you purchase. Many countertops come with a warranty, but often if installed by a certified professional. Even though some home stores sell the material as a DIY, most experts don`t recommend going it alone – except for those who sell it that way. Quartz is a wonderful option for those who want the look of stone with less maintenance hassle. Or, if you want the durability of quartz in a brighty hued version, quartz can do that too. Just make sure you budget appropriately for this beautiful and durable kitchen countertop option.
