Radon is a naturally occurring element that enters the home’s air through cracks in the foundation. It is associated with 21,000 deaths per year in the U.S. The greatest health risk of radon is from breathing it.
However, radon can also be found in well water. While water-borne radon is not in itself a major concern, it can be aerated from the shower, dishwasher, kitchen sink, etc., adding to the radon that’s accumulated in the air.
When radon in water exceeds 10,000 pCi/L, additional testing must be done. If the radon in the water is significantly contributing to the level of radon in the air, a radon-in-water treatment system may be necessary.
SafeWell provides comprehensive testing for radon-in-water and radon-in-air to determine the cumulative volume of radon in your home’s air. If a treatment system is necessary, we can recommend and install a treatment system appropriate for your situation.
