Radon Testing, North Phoenix

What’s Radon?

Radon gas is a common-place carcinogen. Radon gas is proven to instigate lung cancer in humans.

38%+ of homes in the North Phoenix area have a radon gas saturation near or above the DNS action amount.

Radon naturally occurs in the soil, not the building. No house, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon gas contamination.

Every house meshes with the topsoil beneath it in a different manner. This is part of the reason why properties next door to one another often have significantly different radon concentrations.

Radon accumulation will change every day and monthly within an acceptable range. A short-term radon gas measurement measures a single day or week and an accurate bellwether of if the property has a radon gas problem.

Radon has a dangerous duration of only a few days. That means radon gas saturation won’t be higher if the house is closed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Seep into your house?

Surprisingly, homes are not entirely draft-proof.

Radon will infiltrate through any penetration in the property such as drainage, plumbing, and small cracks in the foundation.

The technique to know certainly the concentration of radon gas in the property is to run a radon test.

Radon Gas Testing Procedure

Inspecting a property for radon is a special procedure when delivered alongside a house transaction.

The radon gas expert will install the radon probes in the structure. Radon gas monitors are situated on any level that touches the ground. Typically between 1 and 3 probes are located in the property for the radon gas analysis.

Our radon professional will close every window, shut the vent on the chimney, and confirm the HVAC system is running in the prescribed manner. The radon gas technician will also treat every necessary window with anti-tampering tape to make sure that closed-home requirements are upheld.

The radon gas devices remain in the structure for several days to analyze the levels of radon gas in the property. A specialist will return to the house after the radon testing is done to return the monitors and write a report.

Please call today for a zero-cost consultation! Our radon testing consultants will come out to hear about your property, measure the area, and get you going on making your North Phoenix property one you can take pride in!

    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.
