Radon Information

Radon Gas Information & Your Family's Health

Maine's authorized National Radon Defense Dealer

Radon is a naturally occurring gas that exists in water, soil, and air all over the planet. When radon gas is present in the water or earth surrounding your home, or even in the building materials used on your home, it can result in serious health effects for all inhabitants of your space.

Radon is tasteless, odorless, and invisible, which makes it impossible to detect with the naked eye. The only proven way to detect radon in your home is through professional radon testing. In the event that our experts find elevated radon levels in your home, Maine Radon & Environmental can install a radon mitigation system catered to your needs that will significantly decrease the amount of radon present in your home.

We provide high-quality radon services throughout Southern and Central Maine, including Windham, Portland, Brunswick, and the surrounding areas.

Radon Facts

  • Radon has been found in every state in the U.S.

  • It is the result of naturally decaying uranium in layers of soil.

  • A radon mitigation system is recommended if radon levels meet or exceed 4 pCi/L.

  • Amongst non-smokers in the United States, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer, comparable to asbestos and tobacco smoke.

  • Homes with crawl spaces are more likely to have radon present.

  • Exposure to low levels of radiation over a long period of time is actually more dangerous than high exposure in a brief period of time.

  • When your home is sealed tight for the winter, radon concentrations can climb ten times higher than average levels.

Installing Your Radon Mitigation System

Radon mitigation and testing in Maine

If you are looking for a long-term, reliable solution for your radon issue, Maine Radon & Environmental recommends mitigating with a sub-slab depressurization system. This solution is proven to keep homes safer and radon free.

How Sub-Slab Radon Mitigation Systems Work:

  • Common points of radon seepage are sealed off
  • A PVC pipe catches radon gas in soil
  • Radon is piped upwards in the building
  • A radon depressurization vent directs radon safely away from your house
