Radon Testing for Green Valley Ranch
What Should I Know About Radon?
Radon gas is a Class A cancer-causing chemical. It is proven to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.
A large number of homes in the Green Valley Ranch area have a radon concentration at or above the carcinogenic amount.
Radon gas comes from the silt, not the structure. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon intrusion.
Every property interfaces with the topsoil underneath it in a different manner. That is why properties next to one another may have significantly different radon saturation.
Radon accumulation will shift daily and with the seasons inside of a safe range. A short-term radon gas test measures a single day or week and is a good metric of if the house has a radon saturation.
Radon has a lifespan of only a few days. That means that radon saturation will not be any greater if the property is sealed for years, months, or days.
Houses are not built to be hermetically sealed.
Radon may enter through every ground-facing gap in the structure such as drains, pipeworks, and invisible cracks in the foundation’s concrete.
Your way to know confidently the levels of radon gas in the home is to order a radon test.
Testing a property for radon is a unique process when offered with a real estate transaction.
Your radon gas professional will situate the radon gas detectors in the dwelling. Radon gas analyzers are placed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically, several probes are left in the home for the radon measurement.
Our radon gas professional will shut every window and door, close the flue on the chimney, and make sure the HVAC system is running in the required manner. Our radon gas specialist will also mark every indicated window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed-house requirements are met.
The radon probes are stored in the house for two or three days to measure the saturation of radon gas in the building. An expert will revisit the structure after the radon testing is completed to take the analyzers and write a report.
