What Should I Know About Radon?
Radon is a common-place cancer-causing chemical. Radon is known to lead to lung cancer in people.
Many properties in the Waddell area have a radon concentration at or above the dangerous limit.
Radon gas naturally occurs in the soil, not the structure. No property, new or old, is immune to radon.
Every house interacts with the topsoil underneath it uniquely. This is part of the reason why houses next to each other often have radically different radon gas accumulation.
Radon concentration will shift on different days and seasonally inside an acceptable range. A quick radon gas sample measures a small period and is a dependable metric of whether or not the land has a radon gas accumulation.
Radon has a dangerous duration of only days. This means that radon gas saturation won’t be any higher if the property is closed for years or months.
It may surprise you to know that homes are not draft-proof.
Gaseous contaminants can enter through any ground-facing gap in the structure such as sump pumps, pipeworks, and minor gaps in the concrete foundation.
Your way to know with certainty the levels of radon gas in the abode is to contract a radon test.
Sampling a home for radon gas is a unique process when delivering a property purchase.
