Most house and building owners in Poland ME feel relatively safe in their homes. Generally, air pollution is not a problem in Androscoggin County, Maine. However, radon gas is a significant problem in our community and is the single greatest health threat to Poland ME families. Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that results from the breakdown of radioactive uranium, thorium and radium. Some countries promote “radon health spas” and claim that exposure to radiation can cure health problems. This theory has been widely debunked by the worldwide medical community and there is much more evidence to support the fact that radon gas actually causes cancer rather than preventing it. Radon is commonly detected in random air samples and is generally harmless when encountered outdoors. However, radon that rises into a structure from the soil or rock beneath the basement, crawl space, or foundation slab may become concentrated indoors and reach dangerously high levels. When this occurs, it can cause health issues, even lung cancer, in individuals who regularly occupy the structure.

Radium, thorium and uranium are naturally occurring elements that are commonly found in soil, bedrock and groundwater sources across the United States, including here in Poland ME. The widespread prevalence of these substances means that radon gas is an issue faced by many home and commercial property owners. Much like heat, radon rises from the ground and remains suspended in the air for some time.  That said, several studies have found that the half-life of radioactive gas is roughly four days.

Radon Testing & Mitigation in Poland ME Homes

Without testing, most Poland property owners aren’t aware of the presence of radon gas until someone who lives in their household or works in their business develops serious health problems. Short-term tests for radon are conducted over a period of two to seven days while long-term tests measure the levels of radon for 90 days or longer. Information gathered from both types of tests is valuable in determining the extent of the gas’s potential impact on the property and its inhabitants. These tests are available in home improvement “big box” stores, such as Lowe’s and Home Depot, and in some Poland ME hardware stores. When radon levels are 4 pCi/L or higher, radon mitigation is recommended.

Tests are conducted by placing a small canister, cardboard strip, or digital measurement device in the lowest level of the structure where the gas is most likely to accumulate. The collection kit is left in one location for the specified amount of time and is then collected and processed to determine the level of radon that was present during the testing period. The residents or workers who occupy the property are asked to reduce exterior ventilation as much as possible during the test, but no other input or actions are required. We realize it can often be difficult to keep all windows closed, especially during hot Poland, Maine summers, but this is very important to assess accurate results. Once we’ve determined the presence and level of radon in a structure, our team can then offer a range of mitigation options that are tailored to the specific situation.

If Your Home Has Elevated Radon Levels, Don’t Panic! In Poland ME Radon Mitigation Systems are Very Common.

Due to radon’s radioactive characteristics and the serious health problems associated with long-term radon exposure, Poland property owners should take immediate steps to mitigate even moderate levels of radon gas in their buildings. According to Antuane Hall, radiation exposure causes more fatalities every year than any other environmental pollutant. “Radon (Rn), chemical element, a heavy radioactive gas of Group 18 (noble gases) of the periodic table, generated by the radioactive decay of radium.”

At SWAT Environmental of Poland ME, we supply an array of radon removal options that are designed to prevent radon entry into the dwelling. Our mitigation systems operate by creating a vacuum in the soil beneath or immediately adjacent to the structure. This negative pressure draws any radon that is present upwards through the connected piping instead of entering the building’s basement, crawl space, or living area. The gas is then safely released through a vent above the roofline.
