What Should I Know About Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a dangerous carcinogen. Radon gas is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.
A large number of houses in the Cave Creek area have a radon gas saturation higher than the dangerous limit.
Radon comes from the topsoil, not the building. No house, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon gas intrusion.
Every house interacts with the soil differently. This is part of the reason why homes adjoining each other may have dramatically different radon gas accumulation.
Radon saturation will change on different days and seasonally inside of a safe range. A short-term radon measurement is a snapshot and a reliable indicator of whether or not the house has a radon gas problem.
Radon has a lifespan of 3.8 days. That means radon levels will not be any greater if the property is enclosed for months or years.
No home is entirely gas-proof.
Gas will suffuse through every grounded vent in the house such as drains, pipes, and slight flaws in the concrete foundation.
The way to know confidently the saturation of radon in the property is to contract a radon test.
Testing a house for radon is a unique service when doing a property transaction.
Our radon expert will position the radon gas detectors on the property. Radon gas probes will be situated in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically a few devices are placed in the property for the radon gas test.
The radon specialist will shut all windows, seal the damper on the fireplace, and ensure the air conditioning is functioning in the prescribed manner. Our radon specialist will additionally treat all necessary windows with tamper indication tape to ensure that closed-house conditions are met.
The radon devices are stored in the home for several days to analyze the amount of radon gas in the house. An expert will come back to the structure once the radon testing is complete to recover the analyzers and write a report.
