Youngtown Radon Testing

What’s Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a Class A cause of cancer. Radon gas is known to instigate lung cancer in humans.

38%+ of homes in the Youngtown area have a radon concentration near or above the actionable level.

Radon filters out of the silt, not the home. No structure, new or old,is fully encapsulated against radon gas intrusion.

Each and every home interacts with the soil beneath it uniquely. That is part of the reason why properties adjoining one another can have radically different radon gas saturation.

Radon levels will change daily and seasonally inside a acceptable range. A quick radon gas test measures a small time period and a dependable bellweather of whether or not the structure has a radon gas saturation.

Radon has a lifespan of 3.8 days. Accordingly, radon levels won’t be higher if the property is sealed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Filter into the property?

No house is 100% sealed.

Radon may enter through every ground-facing gap in the building such as drains, plumbing, and small gaps in the concrete foundation.

The technique to know with confidence the levels of radon gas in the structure is to contract a radon test.

Your Radon Test Steps

Sampling a dwelling for radon gas is a unique service when offered with a house sale.

The radon gas professional will place the radon probes in the home. Radon monitors are installed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically between 1 and 3 probes are placed in the structure for the radon gas measurement.

The radon professional will close windows, close the flue on the chimney, and make certain the air conditioning is running in the prescribed manner. Your radon expert will also treat any indicated window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that draft conditions are maintained.

The radon gas apparatus are stored in the house for two or three days to measure the saturation of radon gas in the house. A professional will return to the home after the radon measurement is completed to recover the devices and generate a report.
