Radon Testing, Brighton
What to Know About Radon?
Radon is a common-place carcinogen. Radon is well known to cause lung cancer in people.
38%+ of properties in the Brighton area have a radon gas saturation above the dangerous amount.
Radon comes from the topsoil, not the house. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is fully shielded from radon gas contamination.
Every house interacts with the topsoil underneath it in a different way. That is why houses adjoining others can have dramatically different radon gas saturation.
Radon accumulation will shift every day and seasonally inside an acceptable range. A short-term radon sample measures a single day or week and an accurate metric of whether or not the land has a radon gas accumulation.
Radon has a half-life of only days. This means that radon levels will not be greater if the home is sealed for months or years.
Houses are not built to be totally draft-proof.
Vapors can suffuse through any ground-facing gap in the property such as drains, pipes, and even small gaps in the concrete slab or foundation.
The method to know with certainty the levels of radon in the dwelling is to order a radon test.
