What Should I Know About Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing agent. Radon is proven to instigate lung cancer in people.
A large number of properties in the Littleton area have a radon concentration at or above the actionable level.
Radon naturally occurs in the topsoil, not the home. No house- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon infiltration.
Each and every home interacts with the ground underneath it in a different way. This is part of the reason why homes next to one another have significantly different radon gas saturation.
Radon accumulation will fluctuate every day and monthly within a safe range. A one-time radon gas sample is a snapshot and a solid bellwether of whether or not the land has radon gas contamination.
Radon gas has a lifespan of only a few days. radon gas concentration will not be higher if the home is sealed for months, days, or years.
Houses are not built to be entirely hermetically sealed.
Gas may suffuse through any ground-facing gap in the property such as sump drains, pipes, and slight imperfections in the concrete work.
Your way to know with confidence the concentration of radon in the abode is to have a radon test.
Inspecting a home for radon is a special service when delivered alongside a house purchase.
Your radon technician will place the radon gas monitors in the structure. Radon detectors will be situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. It is typical that several probes are left in the house for the radon test.
The radon gas technician will seal every window, close the damper on the fireplace, and ensure the HVAC system is running in the required manner. Our radon specialist will additionally treat all indicated windows with anti-tampering tape to ensure that closed house standards are met.
The radon monitors remain in the building for 2-3 days measuring the levels of radon gas in the structure. An expert will come back to the home after the radon test is done to take the analyzers and write a report.
