Radon Testing for Colorado Springs
Why Care About Radon Gas?
Radon is a Class A cause of cancer. Radon gas is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in humans.
Many properties in the Colorado Springs area have a radon saturation at or above the actionable amount.
Radon seeps out of the silt, not the building. No structure- new or old – is exempt from radon gas infiltration.
Each property interacts with the ground underneath it uniquely. This is part of the reason why homes adjacent to each other have radically different radon gas levels.W
Radon concentration will fluctuate daily and with the seasons inside of an acceptable range. A one-time radon measurement measures a small period and is an accurate bellwether of if the property has a radon gas saturation.
Radon has a dangerous duration of about half a week. That means radon gas levels won’t be worse if the house is closed for years, months, or days.
It may surprise you to know that homes are not entirely sealed.
Gas will infiltrate through any penetration in the building such as sump pits, pipes, and even minor flaws in the foundation.
The way to know confidently the levels of radon gas in the house is to contract a radon test.
Measuring a property for radon gas is a unique process when completing a real estate purchase.
Your radon gas specialist will position the radon gas analyzers in the structure. Radon gas monitors are situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. On average multiple monitors are placed on the property for the radon gas test.
Your radon gas technician will seal all windows, close the damper on the chimney, and confirm the heating and cooling system is functioning in the standard manner. Our radon expert will additionally mark any required window with anti-tampering tape to make sure that closed-house conditions are met.
The radon gas monitors are stored in the house for several days to measure the amount of radon gas in the building. A professional will come back to the house once the radon test is complete to take the analyzers and create a report.
