Radon Testing in Thornton
What’s Radon Gas?
Radon is a common-place cancer-causing chemical. Radon gas is proven to lead to lung cancer in humans.
A large number of properties in the Thornton area have a radon level above the DNS action level.
Radon filters out of the topsoil, not the building. No home- new or old – is immune to radon infiltration.
Each and every property interfaces with the topsoil underneath it differently. That is part of the reason why homes next to each other may have majorly different radon gas concentrations.
Radon gas levels will fluctuate every day and seasonally within a reasonable range. A quick radon measurement measures a single day or week and is a good bellwether of if the land has a radon gas problem.
Radon has a dangerous duration of 3.8 days. As such, radon saturation won’t be any greater if the property is enclosed for days, months, or years.
Houses are not supposed to be totally gas-proof.
Vapors will suffuse through any grounded vent in the house such as drainage, plumbing, and small gaps in the foundation’s concrete.
The method to know confidently the accumulation of radon in the home is to order a radon test.
Sampling a property for radon is a special procedure when completed as a part of a real estate purchase.
Your radon technician will situate the radon monitors on the property. Radon gas monitors are placed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically between one and three analyzers are installed in the home for the radon gas testing.
The radon technician will close all windows, seal the damper on the chimney, and make certain the air conditioning is operating in the required manner. Our radon expert will also mark all necessary windows with tamper-proof tape to make sure that draft standards are upheld.
The radon probes are stored in the building for a few days to measure the prevalence of radon gas in the house. A specialist will revisit the building once the radon testing is complete to recover the devices and create a report.
