Radon Testing in Virginia Village CO
What to Know About Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a dangerous cancer-causing chemical. It is proven to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.
38%+ of homes in the Virginia Village CO area have a radon gas level higher than the actionable limit.
Radon gas comes from the topsoil, not the structure. No home- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon infiltration.
Every property meshes with the soil in a different way. That is why houses next door to others may have radically different radon gas saturation.
Radon levels will fluctuate on different days and monthly inside of an acceptable range. A one-time radon gas measurement measures a single day or week and is a reliable indicator of if the land has radon gas contamination.
Radon has a lifespan of only a few days. That means radon saturation won’t be greater if the house is enclosed for years or months.
No house is 100% hermetically sealed.
Vapors can seep in through each grounded vent in the house such as drainage, utility connections, and slight gaps in the foundation’s concrete.
The method to know confidently the levels of radon in the property is to run a radon test.
Sampling a home for radon is a unique service when completed as a part of a property transaction.
A radon gas technician will situate the radon gas analyzers in the home. Radon gas analyzers are situated in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically multiple monitors are placed on the property for the radon testing.
Your radon technician will shut windows, shut the flue on the chimney, and make sure the HVAC system is running in the required manner. Your radon professional will also treat all necessary windows with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed-house conditions are upheld.
The radon monitors stay in the structure for 2-3 days to record the amount of radon gas in the property. A technician will revisit the structure once the radon test is finished to return the analyzers and generate a report.
