Radon Testing, Colorado/The Pinery
What is Radon?
Radon is a common-place cause of cancer. It is known to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.
38%+ of homes in The Pinery area have a radon gas concentration above the actionable limit.
Radon gas seeps out of the soil, not the home. No house, new or old, is fully encapsulated against radon gas.
Every house meshes with dirt differently. This is why homes adjacent to one another often have radically different radon gas levels.
Radon gas levels will fluctuate daily and monthly within a normal range. A one-time radon gas test measures a small period and is a reliable indicator of whether or not the house has radon gas accumulation.
Radon has a half-life of only a few days. This means that radon concentration won’t be greater if the home is sealed for days, months, or years.
Houses are not supposed to be draft-proof.
Gas may enter through every penetration in the building such as sump pits, pipeworks, and minor imperfections in the foundation.
The technique to know confidently the accumulation of radon gas in the house is to contract a radon test.
Probing a dwelling for radon gas is a special service when done concurrently with a property sale.
The radon gas specialist will place the radon monitors in the structure. Radon gas detectors are situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Typically between 1 and 3 probes are installed in the house for the radon measurement.
Your radon specialist will close all windows, seal the flue on the fireplace, and confirm the HVAC system is functioning in the required manner. Your radon gas professional will additionally seal any necessary window with tamper-proof tape to confirm that ventilation standards are maintained.
The radon monitors are stored in the structure for a few days measuring the prevalence of radon gas in the house. A specialist will revisit the building after the radon measurement is complete to take the probes and generate a report.
