Waterborne Radon Reduction
What image comes to mind when thinking about radon contamination? If you are like most people you probably imagine an odorless, colorless radioactive gas seeping through tiny cracks and holes in the foundation of your home. While this is the most common way radon contamination occurs, it is not the only threat you face. In fact, the groundwater around your property can also be contaminated, thus exposure you and your family to radon exposure every time you turn on the faucet, wash the dishes or take a shower. . Many parts of the country have problems with radon-contaminated groundwater, and if you live in one of those areas, your home could be at risk even if there is little radon contamination in the soil.
Why is radon contaminated groundwater so dangerous? If the groundwater near your home is contaminated, radon in its gaseous form is emitting radiation into your home every time you turn on the tap. It can also enter through the water lines serving your dishwasher and washing machine, putting your family at an increased risk. Radon in water usually leads to abnormal radon levels in the house. While levels are normally highest in the lowest portion of the home, homes with elevated radon in water typically show higher than normal levels upstairs. Sometimes radon levels can even reach higher than the basement and crawl space levels. Which is why it is even more important to deal with the problem as quickly and effectively as possible.
