Maricopa County Radon Testing

What to Know About Radon?

Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing chemical. Radon is well known to cause lung cancer in people.

38%+ of homes in the Maricopa County area have a radon concentration near or above the actionable level.

Radon gas comes from the dirt, not the building. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon intrusion.

Each and every property interfaces with the dirt uniquely. That is part of the reason why homes next to each other may have radically different radon levels.

Radon levels will shift every day and with the seasons within an acceptable range. A one-time radon gas test measures a small time period and a solid metric of if the home has a radon problem.

Radon gas has a dangerous duration of 3.8 days. That means that radon accumulation will not be any greater if the house is closed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Seep into your home?

No property is completely sealed.

Radon may infiltrate through any grounded vent in the property such as sump pumps, pipeworks, and even minor cracks in the concrete foundation.

The way to know confidently the concentration of radon in the house is to contract a radon test.

Your Radon Test Steps

Inspecting a house for radon is a unique procedure when delivered with a property sale.

Your radon gas specialist will position the radon gas probes in the house. Radon probes are dropped off on any level that touches the ground. On average a few devices are located in the home for the radon testing.

Our radon gas expert will close all windows, seal the flue on the fireplace, and confirm the heating and cooling system is operating in the prescribed manner. Our radon expert will additionally seal every required window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed home standards are upheld.

The radon gas devices are stored in the building for a few days recording the saturation of radon gas in the structure. A professional will come back to the property once the radon testing is finished to take the analyzers and create a report.
