Radon Testing for Lakewood
Why Care About Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a dangerous cancer-causing chemical. It is known to cause lung cancer in children and adults.
Many houses in the Lakewood area have a radon gas saturation above the dangerous level.
Radon filters out of the soil, not the house. No home- new or old – is exempt from radon intrusion.
Each property meshes with the dirt in a different way. This is why homes adjacent to others often have radically different radon saturation.
Radon accumulation will fluctuate on different days and seasonally inside an acceptable range. A short-term radon sample measures a single day or week and a solid bellwether of if the structure has a radon problem.
Radon has a half-life of 3.8 days. That means that radon saturation will not be greater if the property is closed for days, months, or years.
No house is absolutely gas-proof.
Vapors can seep in through any grounded vent in the home such as sump drains, plumbing pipes, and small gaps in the concrete foundation.
Your way to know with certainty the accumulation of radon gas in the dwelling is to order a radon test.
Testing a house for radon gas is an important service when offered with a property transaction.
The radon specialist will situate the radon gas probes on the property. Radon analyzers will be dropped off in crawl spaces and on the first floor. It is typical that a few analyzers are located in the house for the radon test.
The radon gas technician will close all windows, seal the vent on the chimney, and make certain the heating and cooling system is functioning in the standard manner. Your radon professional will also mark every required window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed house requirements are upheld.
The radon probes remain in the structure for a few days recording the saturation of radon gas in the home. An expert will come back to the home after the radon test is complete to remove the analyzers and create a report.
