What to Know About Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a naturally occurring cause of cancer. Radon is well known to cause lung cancer in children and adults.
A large number of properties in the Sun Lakes area have a radon saturation above the dangerous level.
Radon seeps out of the dirt, not the house. No home, new or old, is immune to radon contamination.
Each and every house meshes with the dirt underneath it uniquely. This is why homes next door to one another often have dramatically different radon saturation.
Radon levels will rise or fall every day and with the seasons within a safe range. A short-term radon sample measures a small time period and is a solid indicator of whether or not the house has radon contamination.
Radon has a dangerous duration of only days. That means radon levels won’t be higher if the structure is enclosed for months or years.
No house is completely gas-proof.
Radon can infiltrate through any penetration in the house such as sump pits, utility connections, and invisible flaws in the concrete work.
Your method to know with certainty the concentration of radon gas in the house is to run a radon test.
Measuring a house for radon gas is a special service when offered alongside a property transaction.
A radon gas professional will situate the radon gas detectors in the structure. Radon gas monitors are dropped off on any level that touches the ground. For most properties up to three monitors are placed in the house for the radon gas measurement.
Our radon gas expert will seal windows, close the flue on the chimney, and make certain the HVAC system is running in the required manner. The radon specialist will additionally seal any indicated window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that closed-house requirements are maintained.
The radon probes stay in the home for 2-3 days to analyze the saturation of radon gas in the house. A technician will come back to the structure after the radon test is done to return the probes and generate a report.
