What to Know About Radon?
Radon gas is a common-place carcinogen. Radon gas is known to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.
A large number of homes in the Peoria area have a radon level above the DNS action amount.
Radon filters out of the soil, not the structure. No home, new or old, is fully shielded from radon intrusion.
Each and every property interacts with the dirt differently. That is why homes next to each other can have majorly different radon accumulation.
Radon gas accumulation will change daily and with the seasons within a safe range. A one-time radon measurement measures a single day or week and is a reliable metric of if the land has a radon gas issue.
Radon gas has a half-life of only a few days. radon gas concentration will not worsen if the house is sealed for months or years.
Houses are not supposed to be entirely airtight.
Gaseous contaminants can enter through each grounded vent in the house such as drainage, plumbing pipes, and invisible cracks in the foundation’s concrete.
The method to know confidently the concentration of radon gas in the house is to order a radon test.
Probing a house for radon gas is a particular procedure when offering a house purchase.
Our radon professional will situate the radon detectors in the house. Radon gas detectors will be located on any level that touches the ground. On average multiple devices are left in the structure for the radon gas analysis.
The radon gas professional will shut every window, seal the damper on the chimney, and make sure the air conditioning is operating in the prescribed manner.
Our radon gas professional will also seal all required windows with tamper-proof tape to make sure that ventilation requirements are maintained.
The radon gas devices are left in the house for a few days to measure the saturation of radon gas in the house. A specialist will revisit the home after the radon testing is finished to recover the analyzers and generate a report.
