What is Radon?
Radon is an invisible, odorless and tasteless gas, that comes from the breakdown of uranium inside the earth. Radon can present itself in our homes from the air we breathe or our water when it is agitated and the gas becomes airborne. Radonis the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths yearly. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked.
Radon exposed in water or air can lead to risks of developing organ & lung Cancer. The Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Radon in drinking water is a significant health hazard, though a lesser hazard than radon air. However, we can fix both. If you suspect there may be Radon in your water supply, we recommend getting your water tested.
How do I reduce my Radon?
Radon Air levels can be reduced with a Radon Air System consisting of a suction point in your basement, a fan located outside or in an attic space to pull the air from below your slab and a ventilation pipe. Having this system installed by a Radon Air Professional and wired by a licensed electrician is the only way to ensure the system is up to Maine State guidelines and Radon Removal standards. Installation usually takes about 4 hours.
Radon Water levels can be reduced with the installation of a Bubble-Up system. This system is approximately the size of a small washing machine that would be placed in the basement or utility room. This unit acts as a holding tank for the treated water, a blower creates bubbles in the water which breaks the Radon Air free from the water and ventilates it using 3-inch PVC pipe located outside the home. Installation usually takes 4-6 hours.
