Protect Your Home and Your Family in Annapolis, Maryland from Radon with Atlantic Radon

According to the Maryland Department of the Environment, certain parts of the state have soil characteristics that put them at risk of high concentration of Radon. Furthermore, Annapolis, Maryland, is located at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) assigned Radon Zone 2. It means the average indoor concentration of radon in the area is 2 – 4 pCi/L.

With 4 pCi/L being a critical level, it’s a must for homeowners in Annapolis, Maryland to test their home for Radon concentration. Working with a Radon inspector ensures you’re conducting the right test and getting the most accurate data in your home.

Understanding Radon

Radon is a tasteless, odorless, and colorless noble gas often found in the earth’s soil. It is the result of the decay of uranium and other radioactive elements. Its concentration can easily reach critical levels when the gas is trapped indoors, like in the basement or ground floor of your house.

Ernest Rutherford, an English physicist, discovered Radon in 1899. In the 1900s, another scientist, Friedrich Ernst Dorn, noticed that radium compounds produce radioactive gas when they decay. He called it “Radium Emanation.”

According to studies, Radon is about nine times denser than air, making it easy for the gas to penetrate a wide range of materials and layers. It can easily go through a home’s insulation, concrete walls, paints, and sheetrock. Additionally, it is the densest gas among noble gases at room temperature. Although colorless, it produces a yellow to orange-red glow when it reaches its freezing point, which is -96°F. Radon is not that easy to dissolve in water, but more soluble when compared with other noble gases.

Radon and Your Health

The Surgeon General’s Office and the EPA estimate about 20,000 cases of lung cancer deaths related to Radon poisoning annually. In 2016, there were 148,945 lung cancer deaths across the country. About 10% to 13% of these are associated with Radon exposure. Long-Term exposure to this noble gas is the second most common cause of lung cancer in the U.S.

Your lung cancer risks don’t just depend on exposure to Radon. It could be higher if you are a smoker. Also, the age-adjusted death rate for the disease is higher for men and blacks compared with women and whites. This is according to a study conducted by the Amerian Lung Association.

As Radon breaks down, it produces lead atoms, which are dangerous to humans. Consequently, long-term exposure to Radon and its decay products puts you at risk of various health problems. Unfortunately, there are no early symptoms or signs to watch out for Radon exposure. This is why it’s essential for homeowners in Annapolis, Maryland, to test their properties regularly for Radon.

Testing and Mitigating Radon in Annapolis, Maryland

If Radon is a noble gas, shouldn’t it be able to dissipate on its own into the open air? That’s correct but how your home is built could affect how Radon filters out of your property.

When Radon collects under your home in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, it could easily move into your property through gaps, cracks, and seams on your floors and walls. It could also be trapped in your home through the plumbing, pipes, and cavities within your walls. Additionally, Radon could accumulate in your water supply.

To test for the presence of this noble gas, we recommend hiring a Radon inspector. While there may be Radon test kits available on the market, working with a professional ensures you’re testing correctly.

If your short-term test result shows a Radon concentration level between 2 pCi/L and 4 pCi/L, consider doing long-term testing. It will help confirm high concentrations of Radon in your home. Once we’ve confirmed your results, we could plan for radon mitigation in Annapolis, Maryland. We will present a variety of solutions to help you fix the problem. You could choose the best option that fits your needs and budget. 

When choosing Radon inspectors and technicians in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, check with the local office to make sure they are certified. Your Radon inspectors and technicians must have the necessary skills to assist you in Radon remediation or mitigation in Annapolis, Maryland.

Mitigating Radon in your home in Annapolis, Maryland, is possible and easy with trained and certified Radon technicians. Don’t put your family at risk of lung cancer and other health risks caused by long-term radon exposure.

Thomas and his associates did an amazing job installing our radon removal system. I highly recommend Atlantic Radon to everyone. They are the best and managed to accomplish what one of their competitors could not. Virtually no radon is detectable!

AtlanticRadon made something we had been dreading undertaking very easy and seamless. They installed a radon mitigation system and crawl-space vapor barrier, and worked with us to find the best placement for the systems. The job was carried out quickly and very professionally. I definitely recommend this company, and addressing any radon issue sooner than later. The peace of mind alone from knowing my family’s health is protected is worth the money.

I had Atlantic Radon perform a 48 hour Radon house test and also replace my Radon circulation fan. They were on time, professional, friendly and took the time to answer all my many questions. I plan on having them back to replace a sump pump. I would highly recommend then them.

I contacted Atlantic Radon about replacing a radon fan. They came out the next day to survey what the issue was and scheduled an appointment for the next day. Tommy informed me that the radon fan was out of compliance with state codes and would have to be moved to the attic from the basement. Tommy and Zack installed an electrical outlet in the attic before they installed the radon fan. As they removed the radon fan from the basement they found out that the sump pump needed to be replaced. Since they did not have a sump pump on the truck they returned 2 days latter and took care of that problem. Tommy and Zack were very professional, explained the process for both jobs, very polite and cleaned up the areas they were in. I would highly recommend them for any radon mitigation system work. Very affordable.

If there were six stars, I'd give this business a 6. No one, and I mean no one, gives service and stands behind their work like these guys anymore. Our radon readings were off the charts: 23+. Tommy and his crew came out and installed a standard radon mitigation system, and it didn't get the job done. Tommy came back out and spent half a day evaluating our home to come up with additional steps. 2 fan upgrades, lots of new piping, at least 2-3 more home visits, and we're well below 4. At no time did he ask us for one additional dime. Hire these folks if you want to know what it's like to work with someone who really takes care of their customers.

I had a radon inspection done before moving into my home and the levels came back quite high. After Atlantic Radon worked their magic, the levels had fallen to almost 0! They completed the work quickly and right on the quoted estimate. They know their stuff, are very easy to work with, and I would highly recommend them for your radon mitigation needs!!

We had excellent experience with Atlantic Radon. Our house has several slabs and several structural complications that made it a non-standard case. We initially contacted a different company and were told that given our challenges, low levels of radon would not be guaranteed. Luckily, we then found Atlantic Radon. Tommy and Dan spent days studying the architectural drawings of our house to create a customized solution for us. The solution they came up with was creative and worked wonderfully. They spent extra time on designing a custom solution and extra time on installation. They also stand by their work and guarantee performance. We are super happy to have found Atlantic Radon!

I called Atlantic Radon after discovering via my own testing that my levels were higher than they should be (~12). Tommy was extremely professional and knowledgeable about my area and was very quick to get me on the schedule. Dan was punctual for our appointment and got our job done very quickly. He also explained everything he did in great detail and taught me a lot about this deadly invisible gas. We just got our results after abatement and are now at .4! Doesn’t get better than that. This company has it all: Professionalism, Knowledge, Punctuality and Affordability. I’ve been recommending to all of my neighbors to check their levels and reach out to Atlantic Radon if they run into the same situation I did. Extremely grateful for this All Star team. Thank you!

Tommy is a consummate professional, a straight shooter, and an excellent communicator. He and his team (Austin did a lot of the on-the-ground work) were extremely quick, clean, and efficient in the install, solving some small engineering challenges on the fly. I came to Tommy with a bunch of questions about the systems they use and the results we could expect (our house in Annapolis was below the EPA limit prior to mitigation, but we hoped to get lower) and he was clear, deliberative, and in no way trying to sell me something as he taught me bits of his trade.

I will recommend Atlantic Radon to anyone in the area in need of a radon test, radon mitigation, or sump-pump repair and maintenance, and would trust them in any project they were involved in. Tommy, who has experience doing home inspection, was overall really knowledgeable and helpful, and connected us with local contractors for other projects before we move in. I really couldn't have been more pleased.

Atlantic Radon recently installed a radon remediation system at our house. Our radon levels went from 4.5 to .8, so we are very happy with the results. I find the owner, Tom, to be highly knowledgable, professional and honest. Another company wanted to charge more than double to do unnecessary work. Tom took a step by step approach, meaning that if the initial radon remediation did not do the trick, he would then look into doing additional work like sealing the crawlspace. He also didn't try to upsell me on a sump pump, pointing out the reasons why it wasn't necessary at this time. If you go with this company, you can't go wrong!
