Radon Testing in Northeast
Why Care About Radon?
Radon gas is a common carcinogen. It is known to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.
38%+ of houses in the Northeast area have a radon saturation above the DNS action level.
Radon comes from the topsoil, not the building. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon gas contamination.
Every home interfaces with the topsoil beneath it in a different manner. That is part of the reason why properties next door to each other can have significantly different radon gas levels.
Radon gas saturation will rise or fall on different days and with the seasons inside a acceptable range. A short-term radon test is a snapshot and a good bellweather of if the home has a radon gas saturation.
Radon gas has a half-life of 3.8 days. As such, radon concentration won’t be any higher if the structure is sealed for years, months, or days.
No dwelling is absolutely airtight.
Radon gas may seep in through every penetration in the home such as drains, pipes, and minor gaps in the concrete slab or foundation.
The technique to know confidently the saturation of radon in the house is to order a radon test.
Sampling a home for radon is a unique process when offered concurrent with a house purchase.
Our radon specialist will install the radon detectors in the property. Radon monitors will be placed on any level that touches the ground. For most properties a few analyzers are located in the property for the radon analysis.
The radon professional will shut all windows, shut the flue on the chimney, and confirm the heater or AC is functioning in the standard manner. Our radon technician will also mark every necessary window with tamper-proof tape to confirm that ventilation standards are met.
The radon devices are left in the home for several days analyzing the amount of radon gas in the structure. A expert will revisit the building once the radon testing is done to return the probes and create a report.
