Radon Testing for Wolhurst CO
What is Radon?
Radon is a naturally occuring carcinogen. Radon gas is known to cause lung cancer in people.
38%+ of homes in the Wolhurst CO area have a radon gas level higher than the actionable amount.
Radon gas comes from the dirt, not the building. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon gas contamination.
Each and every property meshes with the topsoil beneath it in a different way. This is why homes next door to one another often have dramatically different radon accumulation.
Radon concentration will rise or fall on different days and with the seasons within a reasonable range. A short-term radon measurement measures a small time period and is a dependable metric of whether or not the structure has a radon issue.
Radon gas has a dangerous duration of only days. That means that radon levels will not be any greater if the house is closed for years, months, or days.
Houses are not built to be totally draft-proof.
Gaseous contaminants can suffuse through each penetration in the property such as sump pits, pipes, and small cracks in the concrete foundation.
The method to know with confidence the levels of radon gas in the home is to order a radon test.
Testing a house for radon is an important service when delivering a property transaction.
Our radon gas expert will install the radon detectors in the structure. Radon monitors will be located in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Normally multiple analyzers are left in the home for the radon gas test.
The radon expert will shut windows, close the vent on the fireplace, and ensure the air conditioning is running in the required manner. Your radon gas expert will also seal any necessary window with tamper-proof tape to confirm that closed-house standards are upheld.
The radon gas apparatus is left in the property for two or three days to analyze the levels of radon gas in the property. An expert will come back to the home once the radon testing is done to recover the probes and write a report.
