Radon Testing, Castle Rock
What Should I Know About Radon?
Radon is a common-place cancer-causing chemical. Radon gas is scientifically proven to cause lung cancer in humans.
38%+ of properties in the Castle Rock area have a radon concentration higher than the actionable limit.
Radon comes from the dirt, not the structure. No structure- new or old – is fully shielded from radon gas contamination.
Each property interfaces with the ground underneath it differently. That is part of the reason why properties adjoining others may have majorly different radon levels.
Radon gas concentration will fluctuate daily and seasonally inside of a safe range. A one-time radon test measures a small period and is a reliable metric of whether or not the home has radon saturation.
Radon has a dangerous duration of 3.8 days. As such, radon gas accumulation won’t be greater if the property is enclosed for years, months, or days.
Houses are not supposed to be completely sealed.
Radon can infiltrate through each grounded vent in the house such as sump pumps, utility connections, and invisible gaps in the foundation’s concrete.
The way to know with confidence the saturation of radon gas in the home is to order a radon test.
Sampling a home for radon gas is a unique process when delivered concurrently with a real estate sale.
The radon gas specialist will position the radon analyzers in the dwelling. Radon detectors are located in crawl spaces and on the first floor. For most properties between 1 and 3 probes are located in the house for the radon analysis.
