Radon Testing for Black Forest
What is Radon?
Radon is a naturally occurring cause of cancer. Radon is known to instigate lung cancer in people.
38%+ of homes in the Black Forest area have a radon gas saturation at or above the actionable limit.
Radon filters out of the topsoil, not the building. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon intrusion.
Every house interfaces with the dirt in a different way. That is part of the reason why houses adjoining one another can have radically different radon gas saturation.
Radon saturation will change daily and monthly within a reasonable range. A one-time radon test measures a single day or week and is a reliable bellwether of whether or not the property has a radon gas saturation.
Radon gas has a lifespan of only a few days. This means that radon saturation will not be greater if the home is sealed for months or years.
Houses are not supposed to be 100% draft-proof.
Radon may enter through each penetration in the house such as sump pits, utility connections, and even small flaws in the concrete work.
Your way to know with confidence the concentration of radon gas in the house is to contract a radon test.
Inspecting a house for radon gas is a special procedure when completed with a property transaction.
The radon specialist will position the radon gas probes in the home. Radon analyzers will be placed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally up to three monitors are installed in the home for the radon test.
Our radon specialist will shut all windows, shut the vent on the chimney, and make sure the air conditioning is running in the required manner. Your radon gas specialist will also seal any required window with tamper indication tape to ensure that closed home requirements are upheld.
The radon devices are left in the building for a few days analyzing the levels of radon gas in the house. A professional will come back to the property once the radon measurement is done to return the monitors and generate a report.
