Radon Testing for Aurora
What to Know About Radon?
Radon is a dangerous cancer-causing chemical. It is known to instigate lung cancer in people.
38%+ of properties in the Aurora area have a radon concentration near or above the DNS action amount.
Radon filters out of the dirt, not the home. No home, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon gas intrusion.
Every property meshes with the topsoil beneath it differently. That is why properties adjoining one another have radically different radon accumulation.
Radon gas accumulation will shift on different days and with the seasons inside a reasonable range. A short-term radon sample measures a single day or week and is a solid metric of whether or not the home has a radon gas contamination.
Radon gas has a lifespan of 3.8 days. Accordingly, radon gas levels will not be worse if the structure is enclosed for months, days, or years.
Houses are not built to be absolutely gas-proof.
Gaseous contaminants may seep in through every ground-facing gap in the building such as sump pits, utility connections, and invisible gaps in the concrete work.
The method to know with certainty the levels of radon in the property is to order a radon test.
Sampling a home for radon gas is an important process when done as a part of a property sale.
The radon expert will position the radon gas analyzers in the structure. Radon gas detectors are placed on any level that touches the ground. For most properties between 1 and 3 probes are installed in the structure for the radon analysis.
Our radon gas specialist will shut all windows, seal the flue on the fireplace, and confirm the heater or AC is running in the prescribed manner. Your radon gas technician will also mark all necessary windows with anti-tampering tape to ensure that closed home standards are met.
The radon probes stay in the home for a few days analyzing the saturation of radon gas in the building. An expert will come back to the property after the radon measurement is finished to return the probes and write a report.
