Radon Testing for Tempe

What Should I Know About Radon?

Radon is a common cause of cancer. Radon is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in people.

Many homes in the Tempe area have a radon level above the dangerous level.

Radon gas seeps out of the silt, not the building. No house- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon.

Every house interfaces with the topsoil beneath it uniquely. This is why homes next door to others often have majorly different radon gas saturation.

Radon gas saturation will change daily and seasonally inside a acceptable range. A one-time radon sample measures a small time period and a solid metric of whether or not the property has a radon problem.

Radon gas has a half-life of only days. Accordingly, radon gas levels won’t be any greater if the home is sealed for years or months.

How Does Radon Infiltrate your home?

It may surprise you to know that homes are not absolutely hermetically sealed.

Radon may enter through every grounded vent in the home such as sump drains, utility connections, and slight flaws in the foundation’s concrete.

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

Your Radon Testing Procedure

Testing a house for radon gas is a unique service when completed a real estate transaction.

A radon technician will position the radon gas monitors in the home. Radon monitors are situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching earth. On average between one and three devices are located in the structure for the radon gas analysis.

Your radon gas specialist will shut every window and door, shut the vent on the chimney, and make sure the heating and cooling system is operating in the prescribed manner. The radon professional will also seal any indicated window with tamper-proof tape to ensure that closed home requirements are upheld.

The radon monitors remain in the home for 2-3 days analyzing the prevalance of radon gas in the home. A technician will revisit the house after the radon testing is finished to remove the monitors and create a report.

    Brian was very helpful and informative. He walked me through the process and showed me everything that was reviewed. He was very clear and transparent … More with the process and went above and beyond with his service. Our home is a new build and he even pointed things out for me to discuss with the builder.
