What to Know About Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a naturally occuring cause of cancer. Radon is known to instigate lung cancer in humans.
Many houses in the Buckeye area have a radon concentration at or above the dangerous limit.
Radon naturally occurs in the topsoil, not the house. No home- new or old – is exempt from radon infiltration.
Every home meshes with the topsoil differently. This is why properties adjacent to others can have significantly different radon gas concentration.
Radon gas accumulation will fluctuate daily and with the seasons inside of a acceptable range. A quick radon gas sample is a snapshot and a solid metric of whether or not the property has a radon contamination.
Radon gas has a lifespan of 3.8 days. That means that radon saturation won’t be worse if the structure is enclosed for days, months, or years.
No house is totally sealed.
Gaseous contaminants will suffuse through each ground-facing gap in the building such as sump pumps, plumbing pipes, and even small cracks in the concrete slab or foundation.
The technique to know confidently the levels of radon gas in the home is to order a radon test.
Sampling a home for radon is a unique service when delivered with a house purchase.
A radon professional will position the radon gas detectors in the house. Radon analyzers are situated on any level that touches the ground. Typically several probes are located in the house for the radon testing.
Our radon gas expert will seal every window and door, close the damper on the fireplace, and make sure the air conditioning is functioning in the required manner. Your radon gas specialist will additionally seal every necessary window with tamper indication tape to confirm that closed home standards are met.
The radon monitors are left in the home for several days to analyze the amount of radon gas in the home. A technician will revisit the building once the radon testing is done to return the devices and write a report.
