Radon Testing, Derby
What Should I Know About Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing agent. It is proven to cause lung cancer in humans.
A large number of houses in the Derby area have a radon level near or above the carcinogenic limit.
Radon gas naturally occurs in the soil, not the home. No home, new or old, is exempt from radon gas contamination.
Each and every house interacts with the soil beneath it differently. This is why homes next to others often have dramatically different radon concentrations.
Radon concentration will fluctuate daily and seasonally within a normal range. A one-time radon test measures a small time period and an accurate bellwether of whether or not the land has a radon accumulation.
Radon gas has a lifespan of only a few days. Accordingly, radon concentration won’t be any higher if the property is closed for months or years.
Surprisingly, homes are not completely airtight.
Vapors will seep in through any grounded vent in the home such as drainage, pipes, and slight flaws in the concrete foundation.
The method to know confidently the levels of radon gas in the dwelling is to contract a radon test.
Measuring a home for radon gas is a special procedure when delivered alongside a real estate purchase.
The radon gas technician will install the radon gas analyzers in the structure. Radon gas analyzers are dropped off in crawl spaces and on the first floor. On average multiple monitors are located in the house for the radon measurement.
Our radon gas specialist will shut every window, close the vent on the fireplace, and ensure the air conditioning is operating in the standard manner. The radon specialist will additionally seal any indicated window with anti-tampering tape to confirm that closed home conditions are met.
The radon apparatus stay in the structure for a few days measuring the prevalence of radon gas in the building. A professional will come back to the building once the radon measurement is completed to remove the analyzers and write a report.
