What Should I Know About Radon?
Radon gas is a common-place cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is proven to cause lung cancer in children and adults.
38%+ of homes in the Clearfield area have a radon gas concentration higher than the dangerous amount.
Radon filters out of the topsoil, not the building. No structure- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon gas.
Every home interacts with the ground beneath it in a different way. This is why properties adjacent to others have majorly different radon saturation.
Radon gas concentration will rise or fall daily and with the seasons inside a reasonable range. A quick radon sample measures a small period and is an accurate indicator of whether or not the home has a radon gas problem.
Radon has a half-life of only days. That means that radon levels won’t be any higher if the home is closed for years, months, or days.
No dwelling is entirely gas-proof.
Radon will suffuse through each penetration in the structure such as drains, pipes, and even minor flaws in the foundation’s concrete.
The technique to know with confidence the levels of radon in the home is to run a radon test.
Testing a property for radon is a special process when offered alongside a real estate purchase.
Your radon gas technician will place the radon gas analyzers in the structure. Radon gas detectors are dropped off in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Normally multiple analyzers are installed on the property for the radon gas testing.
Your radon technician will shut windows, seal the damper on the fireplace, and make sure the air conditioning is running in the standard manner. Our radon professional will additionally mark any indicated window with anti-tampering tape to confirm that draft conditions are maintained.
The radon gas apparatus remain in the house for a few days to analyze the saturation of radon gas in the house. A specialist will return to the home after the radon measurement is completed to return the devices and generate a report.
