What Should I Know About Radon Gas?
Radon is a common carcinogen. Radon gas is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in people.
38%+ of houses in the Liberty area have a radon gas saturation higher than the DNS action amount.
Radon gas comes from the dirt, not the structure. No home, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon infiltration.
Every home interacts with the dirt differently. This is part of the reason why properties next door to others may have significantly different radon gas levels.
Radon saturation will rise or fall every day and seasonally inside a safe range. A short-term radon gas measurement is a snapshot and a solid metric of whether or not the home has a radon issue.
Radon gas has a half-life of 3.8 days. This means that radon concentration won’t be any higher if the property is sealed for days, months, or years.
No home is entirely draft-proof.
Radon gas may seep in through every grounded vent in the property such as drains, plumbing pipes, and invisible imperfections in the concrete foundation.
The method to know confidently the concentration of radon in the abode is to contract a radon test.
Probing a home for radon is a special service when done concurrently with a house transaction.
The radon specialist will situate the radon gas analyzers in the structure. Radon gas detectors will be located in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Normally a few monitors are located in the structure for the radon measurement.
Your radon professional will shut every window and door, shut the flue on the chimney, and make sure the heating and cooling system is functioning in the prescribed manner. The radon gas expert will also mark any required window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that draft standards are maintained.
The radon gas apparatus remains in the home for several days to analyze the saturation of radon gas in the property. A specialist will come back to the house after the radon testing is complete to return the probes and generate a report.
