Radon Testing for Columbine CO
What Should I Know About Radon?
Radon is a common carcinogen. It is scientifically proven to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.
Many homes in the Columbine CO area have a radon level above the dangerous level.
Radon naturally occurs in the topsoil, not the building. No house- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon.
Each home interacts with the dirt differently. That is why homes next door to one another often have dramatically different radon gas accumulation.
Radon accumulation will fluctuate on different days and seasonally inside an acceptable range. A short-term radon gas sample measures a small period and is an accurate indicator of whether or not the structure has a radon issue.
Radon gas has a lifespan of only days. Accordingly, radon concentration won’t be worse if the structure is closed for days, months, or years.
No house is 100% gas-proof.
Vapors can enter through every penetration in the house such as drains, pipes, and invisible gaps in the concrete foundation.
The technique to know certainly the concentration of radon in the structure is to have a radon test.
Inspecting a home for radon gas is a unique procedure when offered a house sale.
Our radon technician will place the radon analyzers in the home. Radon detectors will be situated in crawl spaces and on the first floor. For most properties, a few devices are located in the property for radon gas testing.
Your radon professional will shut every window and door, shut the damper on the fireplace, and confirm the heating and cooling system is running in the required manner.
Our radon gas specialist will additionally mark any indicated window with anti-tampering tape to confirm that draft requirements are upheld.
The radon apparatus are stored in the building for 2-3 days recording the levels of radon gas in the home. A professional will revisit the building once the radon testing is finished to return the analyzers and write a report.
