Radon Testing for Berkley
What’s Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a common-place carcinogen. It is well known to lead to lung cancer in people.
A large number of houses in the Berkley area have a radon gas concentration near or above the dangerous limit.
Radon seeps out of the topsoil, not the house. No home- new or old – is fully shielded from radon infiltration.
Every house interacts with the ground uniquely. This is part of the reason why homes adjoining others have significantly different radon accumulation.
Radon concentration will change on different days and monthly inside of a normal range. A one-time radon gas measurement measures a single day or week and a reliable metric of if the property has a radon gas saturation.
Radon has a half-life of about half of a week. That means that radon concentration will not be higher if the house is closed for months or years.
No property is entirely gas-proof.
Gas can enter through each grounded vent in the building such as sump pits, plumbing, and even minor imperfections in the concrete foundation.
The technique to know with certainty the accumulation of radon in the structure is to contract a radon test.
Testing a home for radon is a special process when delivered as a part of a house purchase.
Our radon gas specialist will situate the radon gas probes in the home. Radon probes will be located in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally between 1 and 3 monitors are left in the home for the radon measurement.
Our Envirotech radon expert will seal every window and door, seal the damper on the chimney, and make certain the air conditioning is running in the prescribed manner. The radon professional will additionally mark every indicated window with tamper indication tape to ensure that draft conditions are met.
The radon gas probes stay in the house for several days measuring the amount of radon gas in the property. A expert will return to the structure after the radon testing is completed to remove the analyzers and write a report.
