Ensure Peace of Mind: Radon Testing Services by Radon Doctors

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. and is treatable. Air and water testing is necessary for prescribing a plan for radon mitigation. Only certain systems are rated to bring down higher radon levels. The EPA recommends mitigation if your air radon level is 4.0 pCi/L or above and the water is 5,000 pCi/L or 10,000 pCi/L depending on your state.

When you should do air testing:

  • Once every 2 years
  • If you spend a lot of time in the basement or lowest level of home
  • If you’ve recently done major work on the home
  • If blasting is being done in your area
  • If you’re a smoker
  • If you’re selling your home

Water testing should be performed if you have well water. For every 10,000 pCi/L of radon in the water, it translates to 1.0 pCi/L. If you have city water the government has their own standards and treatments for reducing radon in the water. City water generally does not have high levels of radon.

Air and Water Radon Testing

At Radon Doctors, we know that radon testing is crucial for identifying and mitigating radon gas exposure in indoor environments, and it typically involves two primary methods: air radon testing and water radon testing. Air radon testing measures the concentration of radon gas in the air within a building, providing insights into indoor radon levels. This method often involves placing specialized detectors or monitors in various rooms throughout the home for a specified period, typically ranging from a few days to several months. On the other hand, water radon testing assesses the presence of radon in the water supply. This testing is particularly important for homes with private wells or groundwater sources, where radon can dissolve into the water and be released into the air when water is used.

What is the Radon Testing Process

At Radon Doctors, we offer active and passive testing:

  • Active testing means using a continuous radon monitor that records hourly data to give you an average over short or long term testing.
  • Passive testing means a small vial or canister is used for short or long term testing and is sent off to a lab. The lab uses different methods to measure the radon levels depending on the type of passive test used. NE Radon Doctors prefers to use liquid scintillation vials because we feel these are the most reliable.

You should get a similar radon level regardless of the method used.

Short vs. long term testing:

  • Both short and long term testing can be done with either an active or certain passive tests.
  • Short term testing is usually performed between 2-4 days.
  • Long term testing is done for a minimum of 90 days.

Water radon testing is performed either from a hose, or sink in your home. Typically, an inspector will remove any filters from the faucet and run the water for several minutes. Samples are taken in vials and brought to a certified laboratory.

We also offer other water testing such as potability, bacteria, lead, and VOC’s.

What Our Customers Say About Us

"Extremely Prompt and Professional! Responded quickly to the request, set an appointment for the very next day. Arrived on-time and texted me 30 min ahead of time as I requested. Upon evaluating existing passive equipment, the job was lower than the initial estimate provided. Highly recommended!"
Michael P.
Southbury, CT
"Spoke directly to Ed, the owner, who gave me a quote on the spot after a few questions. Had an appt within a week of calling, at my convenience. Installer was pleasant and professional. Called a couple of other companies who either never called back or who decided my oddly laid out basement ( part full, part crawl, part addition with dirt floor) was something they didn't want to deal with. Ed was confident they could do the job, and did!"
Shari L.
Fitchburg, MA
"Very prompt and even my realtor said she had never seen one done so neatly. Less than two hours to complete. Would definitely use NE Radon again."

Todd F.
North Windham, CT
"This was not my first home sale, I was selling the house, buyer did a radon test - NE radon doctors offered a competitive rate and was quick to help - but the gentleman that showed up to do the install was a real professional, represented the company well. I will sell other homes and every home in the valley has radon, I know I will use them again."
