Radon Testing, Wheat Ridge CO
Why Care About Radon?
Radon gas is a common-place cancer-causing agent. It is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in humans.
Many houses in the Wheat Ridge CO area have a radon gas concentration near or above the carcinogenic limit.
Radon naturally occurs in the silt, not the house. No home- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon gas infiltration.
Each house interacts with the soil uniquely. This is why properties next to one another can have significantly different radon concentrations.
Radon gas levels will fluctuate daily and with the seasons within an acceptable range. A short-term radon test measures a single day or week and is a dependable bellwether of if the house has a radon gas issue.
Radon has a half-life of 3.8 days. As such, radon saturation won’t be greater if the structure is enclosed for years or months.
It may surprise you to know that homes are not entirely airtight.
Gaseous contaminants may suffuse through every grounded vent in the structure such as drains, plumbing pipes, and even minor cracks in the concrete slab or foundation.
Your method to know certainly the saturation of radon in the house is to have a radon test.
Measuring a home for radon gas is a unique procedure when offered alongside a property sale.
A radon gas specialist will install the radon detectors on the property. Radon monitors will be placed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. On average between 1 and 3 devices are placed in the structure for the radon gas testing.
Your radon professional will seal all windows, close the flue on the chimney, and confirm the HVAC system is running in the prescribed manner. Your radon gas professional will also mark all required windows with tamper indication tape to confirm that closed-home standards are met.
The radon gas monitors remain in the property for 2-3 days recording the levels of radon gas in the property. An expert will come back to the building after the radon measurement is complete to remove the analyzers and create a report.
