Radon Testing – It’s Time!!!

This is a great time of year for radon testing as the home must be closed up for 12 hours prior and during the two day test for the best results.

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. High levels of radon gas occur naturally in Maine soil and water, and can move up into a house from the ground. The house then traps the radon in the air inside. Radon gas can also dissolve into well water, which is then released into the air when you use the water.  Simple air and well water tests can show whether home radon levels meet state and national safety guidelines.

Any home can have a radon problem. Testing is the only way to find a problem. It doesn’t matter if your house is old or new or where it’s located. The only way to know if your house has a problem is to test. If you have a well, you need to test your water along with your air. If you are buying or selling a house and testing for radon, state law requires you to use a Maine registered radon tester.

TP Environmental is a Maine registered radon tester and lab.  We offer several types of tests.  We have continuous monitors that record your radon air level every hour for the two day period.  We also have non intrusive canisters that measure the average radon level over a two day period.
