According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that causes lung cancer. In fact, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon is an odorless and colourless gas which mainly enters a property through small openings and cracks. A radon test is the only way to determine the level of exposure to this harmful gas.
We, at Northeast Home Inspections, conduct accurate radon air and water testing in Orono for properties. We place a monitor in the house to test the air and water samples. Through this, we are able to determine if the level of exposure to radon exceeds the safety levels set by the EPA.
