Radon gas concentration will rise or fall on different days and seasonally within a reasonable range. A one-time radon test is a snapshot and a solid indicator of whether or not the land has radon gas accumulation.

The radon gas expert will position the radon analyzers in the house. Radon analyzers are placed on any level that touches the ground. Typically several monitors are installed in the structure for the radon measurement.
Your radon gas expert will shut every window and door, seal the damper on the fireplace, and make certain the HVAC system is functioning in the required manner. Your radon professional will additionally mark every indicated window with tamper-proof tape to confirm that closed-house conditions are maintained.
The radon gas probes are left in the house for a few days to analyze the amount of radon gas in the structure. A specialist will return to the structure after the radon testing is complete to remove the analyzers and generate a report.
