It seems that only in recent years, homeowners have become more aware of possible radon levels around their home and how it can negatively impact their wells. Radon is a harmful, natural gas which you might not even know exists in your home. When asked why we would want to specialize in radon air and water mitigation, we could think of three great reasons.
- It’s a known health risk. This isn’t the first time we’ve talked about how harmful radon is to the body. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer and other forms, increases the chance of respiratory infections, and more.
- It’s invisible, odorless, and tasteless. What might be the most dangerous aspect of radon is that without a test, there is no way of knowing if it exists in your home. Unless you test for this compound, you could live your entire life in your home under its harmful properties.
- Large portions of NH have high radon levels. It’s no surprise that being from the Granite State that radon will exist. Though large amounts of rock or other natural substances do not guarantee radon levels, it has been documented in a number of homes across the state.
The Water Store strives to give our homeowners the safest drinking water and air possible. As radon in NH becomes a growing concern for those with private wells, we have made ourselves available to provide air and water tests, radon mitigation, and other water systems alike.
