North Scottsdale Radon Testing

What Should I Know About Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a naturally occurring cause of cancer. Radon is proven to lead to lung cancer in humans.

A large number of homes in the North Scottsdale area have a radon concentration above the DNS action limit.

Radon filters out of the silt, not the home. No home, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon gas infiltration.

Each property interfaces with the topsoil in a different manner. That is part of the reason why houses adjoining one another have radically different radon concentrations.

Radon gas saturation will fluctuate daily and seasonally inside of a normal range. A short-term radon gas test is a snapshot and a dependable bellwether of if the house has radon contamination.

Radon has a dangerous duration of only a few days. As such, radon gas saturation will not be any greater if the home is sealed for months or years.

How Does Radon Penetrate the dwelling?

Houses are not supposed to be 100% sealed.

Vapors may seep in through any ground-facing gap in the building such as sump drains, pipeworks, and minor gaps in the concrete work.

The method to know confidently the levels of radon in the home is to have a radon test.

Radon Gas Test Method

Testing a home for radon gas is a unique procedure when offered with a real estate purchase.

A radon gas specialist will place the radon gas monitors on the property. Radon gas monitors are dropped off on any level that touches the ground. Normally up to three monitors are installed in the home for the radon testing.

Our radon professional will seal every window and door, close the damper on the chimney, and make sure the air conditioning is running in a standard manner. The radon technician will additionally treat all necessary windows with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed home standards are maintained.

The radon gas monitors remain in the structure for several days measuring the prevalence of radon gas in the house. A professional will revisit the property after the radon measurement is completed to return the devices and create a report.
