Radon Testing for Northglenn
What is Radon Gas?
Radon gas is common cancer-causing chemical. Radon gas is well known to cause lung cancer in people.
Many properties in the Northglenn area have a radon gas level above the dangerous limit.
Radon gas comes from the dirt, not the house. No property, new or old, is immune to radon gas infiltration.
Every property interfaces with the topsoil in a different manner. That is part of the reason why properties next door to one another may have radically different radon saturation.
Radon gas levels will fluctuate every day and monthly inside an acceptable range. A short-term radon sample measures a single day or week and is a good metric of if the structure has a radon saturation.
Radon gas has a lifespan of only days. This means that radon gas levels will not be higher if the property is closed for months, days, or years.
No home is airtight.
Gas can infiltrate through each ground-facing gap in the home such as drainage, utility connections, and slight cracks in the foundation.
The technique to know with confidence the levels of radon gas in the property is to contract a radon test.
Measuring a dwelling for radon is an important service when delivered alongside a house purchase.
Your radon expert will place the radon monitors in the home. Radon gas monitors are dropped off in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally between 1 and 3 analyzers are installed in the structure for the radon gas analysis.
The radon technician will shut windows, seal the flue on the chimney, and make certain the heating and cooling system is functioning in the standard manner. Our radon expert will also treat any necessary window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that ventilation standards are met.
The radon gas devices are left in the structure for a few days measuring the saturation of radon gas in the property. A specialist will come back to the home once the radon testing is completed to return the devices and create a report.
