Radon is an odorless, colorless and tasteless gas which naturally forms in the depths of the ground. Radon levels are found not only inside, but outside as well.
The EPA states approximately 20,000 people a year die from Radon exposure. Unfortunately the North of Boston, Southern New Hampshire areas on average have higher indoor radon levels than what the EPA considers safe. As radon can be found in the air your breath and potentially in your water, every home should be tested. We use only highly sensitive calibrated equipment to accurately measure for radon.
When should you test your home for Radon?
- 1. Anytime you consider buying a home. Make sure the home you are buying is safe and healthy for your family.
- 2. Anytime you consider selling your home. Don’t wait for the potential buyer to find out if you have radon and uses it against as a barging tool.
- 3. Before you finish a basement. If you spend any time in the basement you will want to know if you are exposing yourself to radon.
- 4. If you exercise in the basement. Do not exercise in an unhealthy environment. Radon affects your lungs and you are
- 5. Before you have children. Children are closer to the ground as are higher radon levels. Also, radon can affect a developing child’s respiratory and immune systems.
