Flanders, NJ Radon Testing & Treatment
How clean is the air in your home?
Flanders is a high-risk area for radon, according to the EPA. Maintaining the health of your indoor air quality is essential for the health of you and your family. At RAdata, it is our priority to help determine if radon is present in your home or office.
Understanding what radon is and its implications if left untreated, are the first steps to securing the environmental health of your home or business.
Where does radon come from?
It’s a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is the 2nd cause of lung cancer in the nation. It is released from the breakdown of uranium in rocks and soil and seeps through cracks in the foundation of buildings accumulating to dangerous levels.
This gas is odorless, colorless, and tasteless and can only be detected through testing. Take life-saving measures to ensure the safety of yourself and your loved ones with a radon test at least every two years. Radon levels present in your home can fluctuate due to numerous factors, and staying up to date on testing is imperative to the environmental health of your home.
Luckily, testing for radon is easy, and RAdata’s qualified and dedicated team simplifies the process to help you take control of the indoor air quality of your home. As the first licensed radon testing company in the state of New Jersey, we utilize our expertise to deliver top-notch services.
The EPA states that the maximum level of acceptable radon exposure is 4.0 pCi/L. Yet, there is no safe level of radon, and you can still be at risk for adverse health effects at these levels. Our radon tests detect low levels of radon at <0.2 pCi/L and can be purchased online.
The Passive Test, the most widely used test we offer, is a reliable and accurate device. One canister covers 2,000 square feet of each foundation. Canisters should be exposed for a minimum of 48 hours and no more than 144 hours. Once testing is complete, samples are sent to our lab to analyze the results.
The Active Radon Monitor is the testing device used for difficult to track radon levels and can sometimes be used in real estate transactions. The advantage of this test is it also measures barometric pressure and humidity to determine if radon levels were lowered through proper methods or through artificial means.
If radon gas is present in your home, getting treatment for this problem is cost-effective and easily accessible. The subslab depressurization system is an active mitigation system that combines basic sealing of the structure to limit the amount of radioactive gas permeating into your home.
Our mitigation system does not detract from the home aesthetic, instead, it is comprised of a hose that vents radon out of the home with the help of a fan, through a small hole in the floor of the basement. The sub-slap depressurization system can also be installed in the crawl space of a home.
We recommend against sealing your home as your sole radon mitigation plan. Sealing is a component of reducing radon in the home, however, it is not recommended by the EPA as an effective method to mitigate radon levels.
