What Should I Know About Radon Gas?
Radon is a Class A cause of cancer. Radon gas is known to lead to lung cancer in people.
A large number of houses in the Clinton area have a radon gas level above the DNS action limit.
Radon gas comes from the topsoil, not the home. No house- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon infiltration.
Every house interfaces with the soil uniquely. That is part of the reason why houses next door to others may have majorly different radon gas levels.
Radon accumulation will change on different days and seasonally within a safe range. A short-term radon gas test measures a single day or week and is a dependable metric of if the property has a radon accumulation.
Radon gas has a half-life of only days. As such, radon concentration will not be any higher if the home is closed for days, months, or years.
Houses are not built to be 100% hermetically sealed.
Vapors may suffuse through each grounded vent in the house such as sump drains, utility connections, and slight imperfections in the foundation’s concrete.
The way to know confidently the accumulation of radon gas in the abode is to order a radon test.
Sampling a property for radon is a special process when done concurrently with a house transaction.
The radon expert will situate the radon gas probes in the home. Radon gas detectors are installed on any level that touches the ground. It is typical that between 1 and 3 monitors are located in the home for the radon testing.
Our radon gas specialist will close every window, close the vent on the chimney, and ensure the heating and cooling system is functioning in a standard manner. Your radon gas professional will also treat all necessary windows with tamper indication tape to confirm that draft requirements are upheld.
The radon devices are stored in the building for 2-3 days to measure the prevalence of radon gas in the property. A technician will come back to the structure once the radon test is completed to take the devices and write a report.
