Radon Testing in Edgewater CO
Why Care About Radon?
Radon is a dangerous carcinogen. Radon is proven to cause lung cancer in people.
38%+ of homes in the Edgewater CO area have a radon gas level at or above the actionable limit.
Radon naturally occurs in the topsoil, not the building. No home, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon intrusion.
Every house interacts with the topsoil beneath it differently. That is why houses adjoining one another may have significantly different radon levels.
Radon gas saturation will shift daily and monthly inside a reasonable range. A quick radon measurement is a snapshot and an accurate bellwether of whether or not the property has radon saturation.
Radon has a half-life of only days. This means that radon saturation won’t be higher if the house is sealed for days, months, or years.
No home is hermetically sealed.
Gas may seep in through each ground-facing gap in the property such as sump pits, pipeworks, and even minor cracks in the concrete foundation.
The method to know with confidence the levels of radon in the property is to order a radon test.
Measuring a home for radon gas is a unique service when done alongside a property sale.
Our radon professional will situate the radon gas analyzers in the house. Radon gas detectors are situated in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically multiple monitors are left in the structure for the radon test.
Your radon gas specialist will close windows, close the vent on the chimney, and confirm the heater or AC is functioning in the prescribed manner. The radon specialist will also seal every necessary window with tamper indication tape to ensure that draft conditions are maintained.
The radon apparatus stay in the property for several days analyzing the prevalence of radon gas in the structure. A technician will come back to the house once the radon test is done to return the monitors and create a report.
