Radon gas is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States according to the EPA, the Surgeon General, and the World Health Organization. Has your facility tested above the EPA recommended level of 4 pCi/L (picocuries per liter)?
Baxter Environmental Group, Inc. provides radon measurements in South Central Pennsylvania and Maryland, including Chambersburg PA and Hagerstown MD.
It is estimated that nearly one out of every 15 homes in the United States has elevated radon levels. This includes any other type of facility with a basement or a slab foundation! There is no way to know if your facility is one of those unless you have the radon levels tested.
Radon In Water
Have peace of mind while drinking your water and get it tested for radon. Whether your water source is a private well or a public water system, the water could contain radon. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that drinking water containing radon presents a risk of developing internal organ cancers, primarily stomach cancer.
