Radon Testing for Stapleton
What’s Radon Gas?
Radon is a naturally occurring cancer-causing chemical. Radon is proven to lead to lung cancer in people.
A large number of properties in the Stapleton area have a radon level higher than the dangerous limit.
Radon gas seeps out of the topsoil, not the building. No home, new or old, is fully encapsulated against radon gas infiltration.
Each home interacts with the soil beneath it differently. This is why properties next to others have majorly different radon concentrations.
Radon levels will change on different days and monthly inside of a normal range. A short-term radon gas measurement measures a single day or week and a dependable metric of whether or not the structure has radon contamination.
Radon gas has a dangerous duration of about half of a week. Accordingly, radon saturation won’t be worse if the property is sealed for days, months, or years.
No house is absolutely hermetically sealed.
Gas may infiltrate through any penetration in the building such as drainage, plumbing pipes, and minor cracks in the concrete foundation.
The method to know with confidence the saturation of radon gas in the structure is to order a radon test.
Measuring a property for radon gas is a special procedure when delivered as a part of a property sale.
A radon specialist will install the radon probes in the structure. Radon probes will be placed on any level that touches the ground. On average up to three devices are placed on the property for the radon gas testing.
The radon professional will shut every window and door, shut the vent on the fireplace, and make certain the HVAC system is functioning in the required manner. The radon gas professional will additionally mark all required windows with tamper-proof tape to confirm that draft standards are upheld.
The radon probes are stored in the home for 2-3 days analyzing the levels of radon gas in the property. A technician will return to the building once the radon measurement is complete to take the analyzers and create a report.
