Radon Mitigation Systems in Dover, NH, for Radon Reduction & Remediation

Radon is a radioactive gas found naturally in the environment. It is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas, making it difficult to detect without specialized testing equipment. Radon is produced through the decay of uranium, which is present in varying concentrations in the Earth's crust. Certain geographic areas have a higher likelihood of having elevated radon levels, but radon can be found in buildings virtually anywhere.

The Need for Radon Reduction & Remediation in Dover

Radon is a known carcinogen, the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Prolonged exposure to elevated levels of radon gas can increase the risk of lung cancer. Radon can seep into buildings through cracks in floors or walls, construction joints, or gaps in foundations around pipes, wires, or pumps. Radon levels are typically higher in basements and first floors because these areas are nearest to the ground and radon sources. Because of this risk, it is crucial to install radon mitigation systems for Dover homes and businesses.
