Radon is natural but that doesn’t make it safe.
Any home with a well can have radon in its drinking water. When naturally-occurring uranium in the soil breaks down, radon gas is released. Because radon is an odorless and tasteless gas, it’s important to do radon testing.
Radon in well water can increase the chances of you or your family members developing cancer. The Maine Bureau of Health recommends that radon in drinking water be no more than 4,000 pCi/L. Studies have shown that nearly one in five Maine wells have radon concentrations this high or higher.
First, we take a sample of your water. Because radon is a health hazard, we’ll send it to a state-certified lab for testing. When the results return, we’ll make sure you understand the findings completely. If you have radon in your water, we’ll discuss your options with you, so you’re informed and decide what the next step will be.
Should you choose to install a remediation system, we’ll test your water once more after installation to make sure the system is working optimally and removing radon from your water.
