Radon Testing, Glendale
What’s Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a dangerous cancer-causing agent. Radon is proven to cause lung cancer in humans.
A large number of homes in the Glendale area have a radon gas saturation at or above the actionable limit.
Radon naturally occurs in the soil, not the structure. No home, newly built or longstanding, is fully shielded from radon gas intrusion.
Each property interacts with the topsoil beneath it in a different way. That is why houses adjacent to others can have significantly different radon levels.
Radon concentration will shift every day and with the seasons inside of a reasonable range. A quick radon gas measurement measures a small period and is a reliable bellwether of if the structure has a radon saturation.
Radon has a dangerous duration of only a few days. That means radon concentration will not be worse if the house is closed for years or months.
Houses are not supposed to be draft-proof.
Gas can suffuse through any ground-facing gap in the structure such as drainage, utility connections, and slight gaps in the foundation’s concrete.
The way to know with confidence the levels of radon in the property is to order a radon test.
Testing a property for radon gas is a unique process when completed with a real estate purchase.
A radon gas expert will position the radon gas detectors on the property. Radon gas detectors are located in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically, a few probes are placed in the structure for the radon testing.
Our radon gas professional will close every window, seal the flue on the chimney, and ensure the heater or AC is functioning in the prescribed manner. Our radon professional will also mark all required windows with tamper indication tape to ensure those draft standards are maintained.
The radon gas monitors stay on the property for two or three days to analyze the saturation of radon gas in the structure. A technician will come back to the home after the radon testing is finished to take the monitors and generate a report.
