Getting your home tested for the presence of radon is critically important. Invisible and without scent, this naturally occurring radioactive gas is present across the greater Sutton area and poses a significant health risk to the general public. It emanates from fractured bedrock and seeps into your homes in a variety of ways, from running water to cracks in the foundation.
Radon will get into homes and buildings through small cracks or holes and build up in the air. Over time, breathing in high levels of radon can cause lung cancer. With the help of our radon identification and mitigation services, you can put your radon-related concerns to rest.
Detection is critical and we help you do that. We install alarm systems that alert in the presence of radon. Usually detectors accompany actual mitigation systems and serve as a backup. Much like carbon monoxide detectors are installed to alert if your HVAC system fails, our monitors will whenever it senses an issue with your radon system’s suction. This could involve fan failure, blockage, power, or other issues.
Radon emerges from the natural decay of uranium that is found in virtually all soil. It typically moves up through the ground to the air above and into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Your home traps radon inside, where it will build up. This happens and any home will have a radon problem. This will mean that new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements, radon will find a way in.
Keep your family safe by testing your home for radon. It is important to test once per year. If traces of radon are found in your home, our RSL Professionals will install solutions designed to redirect radon out and away from your home. Every home will be tested for radon so individuals living there will see if their home has elevated radon levels and take steps to reduce it, if needed.
