Radon Testing, Louisville
What’s Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing chemical. Radon is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.
A large number of homes in the Louisville area have a radon gas saturation higher than the DNS action level.
Radon naturally occurs in the topsoil, not the building. No house- new or old – is exempt from radon gas infiltration.
Every home interfaces with the ground beneath it in a different way. That is part of the reason why homes adjoining one another can have significantly different radon gas accumulation.
Radon accumulation will change daily and with the seasons within a normal range. Quick radon measurement is a snapshot and an accurate bellwether of whether or not the home has a radon gas accumulation.
Radon has a half-life of only a few days. As such, radon levels will not be higher if the structure is sealed for months, days, or years.
No house is absolutely sealed.
Gas may suffuse through each ground-facing gap in the house such as sump pits, utility connections, and minor imperfections in the foundation’s concrete.
The way to know certainly the accumulation of radon gas in the structure is to order a radon test.
Sampling a house for radon gas is a unique service when offered alongside a real estate purchase.
Our radon gas specialist will place the radon gas detectors on the property. Radon detectors will be placed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically several devices are located on the property for the radon analysis.
Your radon specialist will seal every window, close the damper on the fireplace, and make certain the HVAC system is operating in the standard manner. Your radon gas professional will also seal every indicated window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that draft standards are upheld.
The radon devices stay in the structure for a few days recording the prevalence of radon gas in the house. A professional will come back to the property after the radon test is done to remove the devices and create a report.
