What’s Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a dangerous carcinogen. Radon is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in people.
A large number of homes in the Phoenix area have a radon gas saturation near or above the carcinogenic amount.
Radon naturally occurs in the topsoil, not the structure. No structure, new or old, is immune to radon gas intrusion.
Every home interfaces with the soil differently. That is part of the reason why properties adjacent to each other may have dramatically different radon gas levels.
Radon saturation will shift every day and seasonally inside an acceptable range. A quick radon gas test measures a single day or week and is an accurate indicator of whether the structure has a radon gas problem.
Radon has a lifespan of only a few days. That means radon gas saturation will not be worse if the property is closed for years, months, or days.
No house is totally sealed.
Gaseous contaminants can seep in through any penetration in the structure such as sump pumps, plumbing pipes, and invisible imperfections in the concrete foundation.
The way to know confidently the levels of radon in the abode is to have a radon test.
Testing a home for radon gas is an important process when delivered with a real estate transaction.
Our radon expert will situate the radon gas detectors in the structure. Radon gas detectors will be dropped off on any level that touches the ground. Typically between 1 and 3 probes are placed in the house for the radon test.
The radon expert will seal every window and door, shut the flue on the chimney, and make sure the heating and cooling system is operating in the prescribed manner. Our radon technician will also seal any indicated window with tamper indication tape to confirm that closed-house conditions are met.
The radon gas probes are stored in the home for 2-3 days to measure the levels of radon gas in the structure. A professional will revisit the property after the radon testing is complete to remove the analyzers and write a report.
