Radon Testing in Boulder
What Should I Know About Radon?
Radon gas is a common-place cause of cancer. It is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.
38%+ of houses in the Boulder area have a radon gas concentration near or above the carcinogenic amount.
Radon naturally occurs in the silt, not the house. No house, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon gas intrusion.
Each and every property meshes with the dirt beneath it uniquely. This is why properties adjacent to others may have dramatically different radon gas concentrations.
Radon gas concentration will shift on different days and monthly within a reasonable range. A quick radon gas sample measures a single day or week and is a reliable metric of whether or not the property has a radon problem.
Radon gas has a dangerous duration of only a few days. That means that radon concentration will not be higher if the home is enclosed for years or months.
Houses are not supposed to be totally gas-proof.
Radon gas will seep in through every ground-facing gap in the building such as sump pits, pipes, and slight flaws in the concrete foundation.
The technique to know certainly the accumulation of radon in the property is to run a radon test.
Measuring a home for radon is a special service when completed as a part of a real estate transaction.
Our radon expert will install the radon gas probes in the structure. Radon detectors will be located in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Normally between 1 and 3 probes are placed in the home for the radon analysis.
Your radon gas specialist will shut windows, shut the flue on the chimney, and make sure the air conditioning is running in the standard manner. Your radon gas professional will also treat all necessary windows with tamper-proof tape to ensure that draft conditions are met.
The radon gas monitors are stored in the building for 2-3 days to record the levels of radon gas in the house.
An expert will revisit the building once the radon measurement is finished to recover the probes and generate a report.
