Radon Testing in Mead
What is Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a common-place cancer-causing agent. It is well known to cause lung cancer in humans.
38%+ of houses in the Mead, CO area have a radon saturation at or above the dangerous limit.
Radon gas filters out of the silt, not the structure. No house, newly built or longstanding, is fully shielded from radon gas contamination.
Every home interacts with the soil beneath it uniquely. That is part of the reason why houses next to others have radically different radon saturation.
Radon accumulation will change on different days and with the seasons within a normal range. A quick radon measurement measures a small period and a solid metric of whether or not the structure has radon gas accumulation.
Radon has a dangerous duration of about half of a week. That means radon accumulation will not be greater if the structure is sealed for years, months, or days.
Surprisingly, homes are not entirely hermetically sealed.
Radon gas will infiltrate through every ground-facing gap in the property such as sump drains, pipes, and even minor imperfections in the concrete slab or foundation.
The way to know confidently the accumulation of radon gas in the structure is to run a radon test.
Probing a dwelling for radon gas is a unique service when delivered with a real estate purchase.
Your radon gas professional will install the radon probes on the property. Radon gas analyzers are installed on any level that touches the ground. Normally a few monitors are installed on the property for the radon measurement.
The radon professional will shut every window, close the vent on the chimney, and make sure the air conditioning is operating in the required manner.
Your radon specialist will additionally mark every required window with tamper-proof tape to ensure that ventilation requirements are upheld.
The radon monitors remain on the property for 2-3 days recording the amount of radon gas in the home. A specialist will return to the house once the radon test is finished to remove the analyzers and generate a report.
