Radon Testing for Ken Caryl CO
What is Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a common-place cancer-causing chemical. Radon is well known to lead to lung cancer in people.
Many homes in the Ken Caryl CO area have a radon gas level above the carcinogenic level.
Radon gas naturally occurs in the dirt, not the building. No structure, new or old, is exempt from radon.
Each home meshes with the soil underneath it in a different way. This is why properties adjoining each other may have majorly different radon saturation.
Radon accumulation will fluctuate on different days and monthly inside of an acceptable range. A quick radon gas measurement measures a small time period and an accurate metric of if the property has radon contamination.
Radon gas has a half-life of 3.8 days. That means that radon gas concentration won’t be worse if the structure is enclosed for years, months, or days.
No home is entirely airtight.
Vapors can seep in through each ground-facing gap in the house such as sump pumps, utility connections, and even minor imperfections in the concrete foundation.
The method to know confidently the saturation of radon in the house is to run a radon test.
Inspecting a house for radon gas is an important service when completed concurrently with a property transaction.
The radon gas specialist will install the radon monitors in the dwelling. Radon gas probes are situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. For most properties between 1 and 3 probes are located in the property for the radon gas analysis.
The radon gas technician will shut all windows, seal the damper on the chimney, and make certain the HVAC system is functioning in the standard manner. Our radon professional will also mark any required window with anti-tampering tape to confirm that draft conditions are met.
The radon gas monitors are stored in the building for two or three days measuring the levels of radon gas in the house. A specialist will revisit the structure once the radon measurement is done to return the devices and generate a report.
