What’s Radon Gas?
Radon is a naturally occurring cancer-causing chemical. Radon gas is scientifically proven to instigate lung cancer in humans.
38%+ of homes in the Fountain Hills area have a radon gas concentration at or above the DNS action level.
Radon filters out of the silt, not the home. No home, new or old, is fully shielded from radon infiltration.
Each and every property interfaces with the ground differently. This is part of the reason why properties next door to one another can have dramatically different radon concentrations.
Radon concentration will shift on different days and with the seasons inside a safe range. A short-term radon gas sample is a snapshot and a solid metric of whether or not the home has a radon gas saturation.
Radon has a half-life of only a few days. Accordingly, radon gas concentration will not be worse if the structure is closed for years or months.
It may surprise you to know that homes are not totally draft-proof.
Vapors will suffuse through each penetration in the home such as sump drains, pipeworks, and invisible flaws in the concrete foundation.
The technique to know certainly the accumulation of radon in the dwelling is to run a radon test.
Sampling a property for radon gas is an important service when offered with a house purchase.
A radon gas professional will position the radon gas detectors in the structure. Radon gas detectors are dropped off on any level that touches the ground. On average between one and three analyzers are installed in the house for the radon measurement.
The radon specialist will close every window and door, seal the damper on the fireplace, and make certain the heating and cooling system is functioning in the prescribed manner. Our radon gas expert will also seal every required window with tamper-proof tape to ensure that ventilation requirements are maintained.
The radon devices are stored in the house for two or three days to measure the amount of radon gas in the house. An expert will revisit the home once the radon test is finished to return the probes and write a report.
