Radon Testing in Elizabeth
What’s Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a Class A cancer-causing chemical. Radon is well known to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.
38%+ of properties in the Elizabeth area have a radon saturation near or above the actionable level.
Radon gas filters out of the soil, not the home. No home- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon gas intrusion.
Each house interacts with the topsoil beneath it in a different way. This is part of the reason why properties adjoining one another may have radically different radon accumulation.
Radon concentration will change on different days and seasonally inside of an acceptable range. A short-term radon gas sample is a snapshot and a good metric of if the house has radon gas contamination.
Radon gas has a dangerous duration of only a few days. radon concentration won’t be higher if the structure is closed for years or months.
No property is completely sealed.
Gaseous contaminants will infiltrate through every grounded vent in the structure such as sump drains, plumbing, and small imperfections in the foundation’s concrete.
The way to know with confidence the saturation of radon in the property is to contract a radon test.
Probing a dwelling for radon gas is a unique procedure when completed as a part of a house purchase.
The radon gas professional will install the radon analyzers in the structure. Radon analyzers are located in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically, up to three monitors are placed on the property for the radon gas measurement.
Our radon expert will shut all windows, seal the vent on the chimney, and confirm the air conditioning is functioning in the required manner. Our radon gas technician will also mark all necessary windows with anti-tampering tape to ensure that closed home conditions are upheld.
The radon monitors are left in the structure for several days to record the prevalence of radon gas in the structure. A specialist will revisit the property after the radon test is finished to return the analyzers and generate a report.
