Tempe Radon Testing

Radon is a Class A cause of cancer. Radon is scientifically proven to cause lung cancer in humans.

Many houses in the Tempe area have a radon gas level near or above the actionable limit.

Radon gas comes from the silt, not the structure. No home, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon.

Each house interacts with the ground differently. That is why homes adjacent to others often have majorly different radon levels.

Radon saturation will shift daily and seasonally inside a reasonable range. A quick radon measurement measures a single day or week and is a reliable bellwether of whether the structure has radon gas contamination.

Radon gas has a dangerous duration of 3.8 days. That means that radon gas saturation will not be higher if the house is enclosed for years, months, or days.

How Does Radon Gas Penetrate Your Structure?

Houses are not supposed to be completely airtight.

Gaseous contaminants may suffuse through any grounded vent in the property such as sump pits, plumbing, and even minor cracks in the concrete work.

Your way to know with confidence the saturation of radon gas in the home is to contract a radon test.

Your Radon Gas Testing Procedure

Measuring a dwelling for radon is a unique procedure when delivering a real estate transaction.

Your radon technician will situate the radon probes in the home. Radon gas detectors are placed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Normally multiple analyzers are installed in the house for the radon gas analysis.

Our radon gas specialist will close every window, seal the damper on the fireplace, and make sure the heater or AC is functioning in the prescribed manner. Our radon professional will additionally treat all required windows with tamper indication tape to make sure that ventilation standards are upheld.

The radon probes are left in the structure for a few days analyzing the levels of radon gas in the home. A technician will return to the building once the radon testing is complete to recover the devices and generate a report.

Give us a call today for a no-cost estimate! Our radon testing consultants will come out to hear about your property, take measurements, and get you going on making your Tempe home one you can enjoy without reservation!
