Find a Professional Radon Contractor in Maryland

Maryland is famous for fresh seafood, many waterways, and its location on the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Although its topography varies from the Coastal Plain, to the Piedmont Plateau, to the Appalachian Mountains, experts agree that radon levels in homes and other buildings in Maryland are unpredictable. For that reason, the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) recommends that you test your home for radon, “the most important preventable cause of lung cancer in Maryland and the U.S.”

Radon Health Risk in Maryland

Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon is an invisible, odorless radioactive gas that can enter your Maryland home from the soil below through small cracks or other openings, such as a sump or drain. The invisible radon gas is then inhaled into the lungs, where it can damage cells and, over time, cause lung cancer. The longer your family is exposed to radon, the greater their risk of developing lung cancer.

In Maryland, homeowners have reported elevated levels of radon in every county and in the city of Baltimore. Maryland Department of Health warns: “For children, radon and second-hand smoke are the biggest risks for developing lung cancer later in life. Unless you test with a radon test kit, you can't tell whether your home has radon, because radon is a gas that has no smell, no color, and can't be seen.” The U.S. EPA recommends you consider fixing the home if radon test results are 2 to 4 pCi/L; EPA strongly recommends fixing the home when radon levels are 4 pCi/L or higher.

How Do I Fix Radon in My Maryland Home?

The most common and effective method used to mitigate radon in Maryland homes is the installation of an Active Soil Depressurization (ASD) system. System location and design depend on a number of factors and, considering you are reducing a radioactive health hazard, radon mitigation is best left to qualified professionals.
