Radon in Air Sampling

The EPA states that radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that leaks from the soil. Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, and the second leading cause of lung cancer overall according to EPA estimates. Radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked.

Radon in Water Sampling

Radon in water is NOT offered as a standard service by Home Inspection NY. Radon in water is only released into the air during agitation. Only about 1-2 percent of radon in the air comes from drinking water. However, breathing radon increases the risk of lung cancer over the course of your lifetime. Some radon stays in the water; drinking water containing radon also presents a risk of developing internal organ cancers, primarily stomach cancer. However, this risk is smaller than the risk of developing lung cancer from radon released to air from tap water.

In the event that your air quality test high in Radon or your Radon results by the level of the home indicate the need, your inspector may offer to test your water as an additional service. The results of this test will aid in both mitigation and in overall radon level reduction in your home.
