Radon Testing for Fountain
What Should I Know About Radon?
Radon is a common-place carcinogen. Radon gas is well known to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.
A large number of houses in the Fountain area have a radon gas concentration higher than the actionable limit.
Radon comes from the topsoil, not the house. No home- new or old – is exempt from radon gas contamination.
Every house meshes with the ground beneath it differently. That is part of the reason why properties adjacent to others may have radically different radon gas accumulation.
Radon gas accumulation will change every day and with the seasons within a normal range. A quick radon measurement measures a small period and is a reliable bellwether of whether or not the property has radon saturation.
Radon gas has a half-life of about half a week. As such, radon levels will not be higher if the structure is closed for months, days, or years.
No home is entirely sealed.
Gaseous contaminants will seep in through every ground-facing gap in the structure such as drains, pipeworks, and minor flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.
Your way to know certainly the levels of radon in the abode is to run a radon test.
Probing a home for radon gas is an important process when completing a house purchase.
Our radon gas technician will position the radon monitors in the house. Radon monitors are placed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. For most properties, up to three monitors are installed in the property for the radon gas measurement.
Your radon specialist will shut all windows, close the vent on the chimney, and make sure the HVAC system is operating in the prescribed manner. Our radon gas specialist will additionally mark every necessary window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that draft conditions are upheld.
The radon probes remain in the home for a few days analyzing the levels of radon gas in the building. A professional will return to the building once the radon measurement is done to remove the analyzers and generate a report.
