Citrus Park Radon Testing

What’s Radon?

Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing chemical. It is well known to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.

38%+ of homes in the Citrus Park area have a radon gas saturation at or above the carcinogenic limit.

Radon gas filters out of the soil, not the home. No property, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon gas.

Every property meshes with the ground beneath it differently. That is part of the reason why homes next to one another have radically different radon accumulation.

Radon gas levels will change daily and with the seasons within a safe range. A quick radon gas measurement measures a single day or week and is a reliable indicator of whether the land has a radon issue.

Radon has a half-life of only days. As such, radon gas saturation will not be greater if the home is sealed for months or years.

How Does Radon Penetrate a Property?

No dwelling is completely draft-proof.

Gas can enter through any ground-facing gap in the structure such as sump drains, pipes, and invisible flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.

Your method to know with confidence the saturation of radon in the house is to have a radon test.

Your Radon Test Procedure

Sampling a property for radon gas is an important service when done alongside a real estate transaction.

A radon technician will install the radon monitors on the property. Radon gas detectors are placed on any level that touches the ground. For most properties between 1 and 3 monitors are installed in the house for the radon test.

The radon gas technician will seal windows, close the damper on the chimney, and ensure the HVAC system is functioning in a standard manner. The radon gas technician will also mark any indicated window with anti-tampering tape to make sure that ventilation requirements are maintained.

The radon gas monitors stay in the building for a few days analyzing the saturation of radon gas in the home. An expert will come back to the house after the radon testing is done to remove the monitors and write a report.

    I was thoroughly informed by Brad, who completed the home inspection. He showed pictures, as well as touring the home….showing & pointing out specific … More details. All the while, Brad took the time to answer any and all my questions. Brad was great!

    Bradley was fantastic. Everyone was trying to deter us from hiring an inspector as it was the final walk through for a brand new home, but we wanted peace … More of mind. He was incredibly thorough and efficient, and produced information that probably has saved us years of frustration (ex. missing sections of foam in attic, broken truss). Even the home builder was appreciative of his findings as they knew a professional had came through and followed his report fully.
