Radon Testing in Arvada
What to Know About Radon?
Radon is a common cause of cancer. Radon is well known to cause lung cancer in people.
Many properties in the Arvada area have a radon concentration at or above the dangerous amount.
Radon gas filters out of the soil, not the building. No structure, new or old, is fully encapsulated against radon gas intrusion.
Each property interfaces with the ground beneath it in a different manner. That is why houses next door to others may have dramatically different radon concentrations.
Radon gas accumulation will fluctuate on different days and with the seasons inside of a safe range. A quick radon gas test measures a small time period and an accurate indicator of if the land has a radon problem.
Radon has a lifespan of only days. Accordingly, radon gas accumulation will not be greater if the property is closed for months or years.
Houses are not built to be completely draft-proof.
Radon gas may enter through any ground-facing gap in the structure such as sump pumps, plumbing pipes, and slight cracks in the concrete slab or foundation.
The method to know certainly the concentration of radon in the dwelling is to contract a radon test.
Testing a home for radon gas is an important process when done alongside a property sale.
Our radon gas technician will situate the radon monitors in the dwelling. Radon analyzers are dropped off on any level that touches the ground. Normally between 1 and 3 devices are installed in the structure for the radon test.
Your radon technician will seal every window and door, seal the damper on the fireplace, and ensure the air conditioning is running in the prescribed manner. Your radon professional will also treat all necessary windows with tamper-proof tape to ensure that closed-house conditions are maintained.
The radon monitors are stored in the building for a few days to measure the amount of radon gas in the home. A professional will come back to the structure after the radon testing is done to recover the analyzers and create a report.
