Why Care About Radon?
Radon is a common-place cancer-causing agent. Radon is proven to lead to lung cancer in humans.
Many properties in the Mesa area have a radon gas concentration higher than the DNS action amount.
Radon naturally occurs in the dirt, not the house. No house- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon gas.
Each home interfaces with the dirt beneath it uniquely. That is part of the reason why properties adjacent to each other have significantly different radon gas levels.
Radon concentration will fluctuate every day and with the seasons inside of a safe range. A short-term radon gas test is a snapshot and an accurate bellwether of whether or not the house has a radon saturation.
Radon has a lifespan of 3.8 days. That means that radon gas accumulation won’t be higher if the house is closed for months, days, or years.
No dwelling is 100% gas-proof.
Radon gas will infiltrate through every grounded vent in the house such as drainage, utility connections, and slight cracks in the concrete foundation.
Your way to know confidently the saturation of radon gas in the house is to order a radon test.
Inspecting a dwelling for radon gas is a special procedure when offered a real estate purchase.
A radon gas professional will situate the radon analyzers in the home. Radon gas detectors are dropped off on any level that touches the ground. Normally between 1 and 3 analyzers are left in the property for the radon analysis.
Your radon professional will shut all windows, shut the damper on the fireplace, and confirm the heating and cooling system is functioning in the prescribed manner. Our radon specialist will also mark every indicated window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed home conditions are maintained.
The radon monitors remain in the home for 2-3 days analyzing the saturation of radon gas in the property. A technician will revisit the structure once the radon measurement is finished to recover the analyzers and create a report.
