According to the New York State Department of Health, the pCI/L average in Greene county is 7.09 (last tested 2016). Out of a total of 323 homes tested for radon in Greene County, 126 have failed radon tests with a 4.00 or higher using EPA standards. Radon mitigation systems are highly recommended for buildings over 4.0 PCI/L.

Our testing devices measure the rate of radioactive decay, not mass or volume of radon. Many area’s in Greene County will test differently due to the various types of soil and bedrock. The only possible way to know if you have radon is to test for it. Radon is inert and cannot be seen or smelled.

Although radon can come from landfills and other man-made situations, the majority of radon comes from the soil beneath us. It is very localized and comes from the area directly under and a few meters around buildings.

If you are in need of a certified radon specialist, contact us today for testing your site.
