What is radon?
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas and is the 2nd cause of lung cancer in the nation. Radon is released from uranium in rocks and soil breaking down and seeping through cracks in the foundation of homes and buildings which can accumulate to dangerous levels.
Radon gas is colorless, odorless, and tasteless and can only be detected by conducting a test. Ensure your safety inside your home with a radon test at least every two years. In your home, radon levels can fluctuate due to numerous factors. Staying current with testing is imperative to the environmental health of your home.
Testing for radon is easy and RAdata’s dedicated and qualified team can simplify the process and allow you to take control of the air quality in your home. RAdata is the first licensed radon testing company in the state of New Jersey and we utilize our expertise to deliver top-tier services.
The maximum level of acceptable radon exposure, according to the U.S. EPA, is 4.0 pCi/L. Yet, there is no safe level of radon. You can still be at risk for health effects with any level of radon. An RAdata radon test can detect low levels of radon at <0.2 pCi/L and can be purchased online.
A passive radon test is the most widely used test. We offer this test because it is a reliable and accurate device. One canister covers 2,000 square feet of each foundation. A radon canister should be exposed for a minimum of 48 hours and no more than 144 hours. Once the test is complete, the samples are sent to our lab to analyze the results.
An active radon monitor is another type of testing device. This is used for difficult to track radon levels and can often be used in real estate transactions. By using an active radon monitor you also measure barometric pressure and humidity to determine if radon levels were lowered through proper methods or through artificial means.
If it is determined that radon gas is present in your home RAdata can help you with cost-effective treatment options. The sub-slab depressurization system is an active mitigation system that combines basic sealing to limit the amount of radon seeping into your home.
An RAdata mitigation system does not detract from the appearance of your home. Our systems are 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. Have a crawl space in your home? A sub-slap depressurization system can also be installed there!
Sealing your home is not a foolproof radon mitigation plan. Yes, sealing is a component of reducing radon in the home, however, the EPA does not recommended it as an effective method to mitigate radon levels.
