Testing for radon during the home inspection window is very common. Unsafe levels of radon is often found. These levels may change over time and we recommended testing every two years. All homes are at risk, including those without a basement.
Radon is a naturally occurring gas that becomes trapped in the home. Every home has radon, but at different concentrations. Some homes have higher levels due to the land they are placed on and others due to the home's construction.
Every Maine county has high levels and a test is required to determine if levels are high for your specific home. If concentrations are too high in your home, your health is at risk. Due to an obvious conflict of interest, we don't mitigate if high levels are detected. We only test.
According to Bob Stilwell of Maine's radiation control program at the Department of Health and Human Services, Radon occurs in unusually high levels in Maine and, “There are not many states equal to or higher than Maine.”
Let us help you professionally test for Radon in your home using our Continuous Radon Monitors (CRMs) so you can have the peace of mind to know you are safe from radiation.
A CRM is an electronic testing machine that eliminates the potential for human error. CRMs take an electronic, hourly reading and provide results immediately. No lab time is needed. Our fleet of Sun Nuclear 1027 CRMs are calibrated annually by Sun Nuclear, as required by the State of Maine. Maine Radon testers must be licensed. Find our license here.
