Is Radon in Your Water Supply or Home?

by | May 10, 2017 | Business

Radon is a radioactive gas. It has no color, taste, and odor, which makes it tricky to find. It can also find its way into your air or water.

How does that happen?

While radon-related deaths are often caused by radon seeping through the cracks in a home’s foundation, about 30 to 1,800 deaths are due to radon found in the household water supply, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Radon, alarmingly enough, can dissolve in the water supply.

How do I know if there’s radon?

You can use a test kit to get a gauge on radon levels in your home. Make sure you order them from reliable suppliers. You can also hire a professional inspection company to check those radon levels if there are any.

How to remove radon?

There are 2 ways to get this done. You can use aeration treatment or resort to the granular activated carbon (GAC) treatment. However, you’ll need to consider the pros and cons of each, so you’ll pick the option that suits your needs the most.

What else do I need to know?

Make sure you have your water tested regularly. That’s going to help you keep an eye on those radon levels and to monitor any possible increase. That way, if those levels exceed beyond the recommended range, you can take measures to beat those levels back down.
