Radon Testing in Greenwood Village
What is Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a naturally occurring cause of cancer. Radon gas is known to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.
38%+ of houses in the Greenwood Village area have a radon level near or above the carcinogenic amount.
Radon gas comes from the topsoil, not the house. No home, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon gas intrusion.
Every property interacts with the dirt differently. This is part of the reason why houses adjacent to one another may have significantly different radon accumulation.
Radon levels will shift every day and seasonally inside of a normal range. A one-time radon test measures a single day or week and is a reliable bellwether of whether or not the structure has radon gas contamination.
Radon has a half-life of only a few days. radon accumulation will not be higher if the house is closed for months or years.
Houses are not supposed to be completely sealed.
Radon can infiltrate through any grounded vent in the structure such as drains, pipeworks, and small flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.
The method to know with certainty the levels of radon gas in the abode is to run a radon test.
Measuring a property for radon is a unique service when offered as a part of a real estate purchase.
Your radon gas expert will install the radon detectors in the house. Radon detectors are situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. On average a few analyzers are placed in the house for the radon testing.
The radon gas specialist will close windows, shut the flue on the chimney, and confirm the heater or AC is functioning in the required manner. Our radon specialist will additionally treat all necessary windows with tamper indication tape to ensure that ventilation conditions are maintained.
The radon monitors remain in the home for several days measuring the prevalence of radon gas in the building. An expert will come back to the house once the radon test is complete to return the monitors and create a report.
