Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas primarily found in rock, soil, and well water. Radon gas and its by-products are odorless and colorless and can infiltrate basements and water supplies and cause indoor environmental health concerns.
Radon gas has been found in all 21 New Jersey counties, with most of the higher concentrations detected in the western, northern portion of the state. Its gaseous by-products may cause adverse health effects, such as lung cancer. Therefore, it’s essential to test and mitigate this hazard, even in new homes and buildings.
Paul Sakson Environmental employs three New Jersey Certified Radon Measurement Technicians. For child care centers, we help operators with their five-year testing requirements and follow all necessary NJDEP protocols.
Radon testing is often performed during both residential and commercial property transactions as part of due diligence and to ensure that radon doesn’t pose a significant risk. Testing is the only way to know your level of exposure.
