Find a Professional Radon Contractor in Delaware

Delaware is the second smallest state in the U.S., known for its scenic beauty, miles of shoreline, low taxes and affordable housing. Delaware has only three counties: New Castle, Kent and Sussex, but whether you’re moving to Delaware or are already living there, keep in mind that any home, anywhere, could have high levels of radon gas.

Is there Radon in My Delaware Home?

Radon, an invisible, odorless and tasteless radioactive gas that causes lung cancer, occurs naturally in rocks and soils. It can enter a building through even the smallest opening in the foundation and can be found in any home, old or new. In fact, newer, more airtight homes might have higher concentrations of radon than older homes.

Geology is a factor in where you are most likely to find radon in a Delaware home. Delaware has two general areas, both in New Castle County, with geologic factors that give them the highest potential for elevated radon in homes. However, homes in Delaware’s Kent and Sussex Counties can also test high for radon.

The Delaware Division of Public Health says, “Radon can be found in one house and yet not in the one next door. So you must test your home to see if you or your family is at risk.”

When Do I Need to Mitigate My Home in Delaware?

The U.S. EPA recommends that you consider mitigating your home if radon levels have tested between 2 and 4 picocuries per liter (pCi/L). The EPA strongly recommends that you fix your home if the radon levels test at 4 pCi/L or higher. If you are buying or selling a Delaware home, elevated radon levels should be mitigated immediately. Taking care of a radon issue during a real estate transaction provides a safer home environment for the family who will live there, and adds value in today’s environmentally-conscious world. If you are staying in your Delaware home and the radon has tested high, you also will want to mitigate immediately to protect your family from continued exposure to this known health hazard.

Many factors contribute to the design of a radon reduction system. In Delaware, even if your home is not located in an area with geology that makes it more likely to have high radon levels, designing and installing an effective radon mitigation is best left to the professionals.
