Kaysville Radon Testing

What Should I Know About Radon Gas?

Radon is a dangerous carcinogen. It is proven to instigate lung cancer in people.

38%+ of homes in the Kaysville area have a radon gas level at or above the actionable level.

Radon naturally occurs in the topsoil, not the building. No home, new or old, is exempt from radon contamination.

Each house interacts with the topsoil underneath it uniquely. This is why homes adjoining others often have significantly different radon accumulation.

Radon levels will rise or fall daily and seasonally inside a safe range. A short-term radon sample measures a single day or week and a solid bellwether of whether or not the land has a radon gas accumulation.

Radon gas has a lifespan of only a few days. That means radon gas concentration won’t be greater if the home is closed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Filter into the Property?

No house is completely hermetically sealed.

Gas will suffuse through any ground-facing gap in the structure such as sump pumps, pipeworks, and invisible flaws in the foundation’s concrete.

The technique to know with certainty the concentration of radon in the structure is to contract a radon test.

Your Radon Gas Testing Steps

Testing a home for radon is a unique service when offered alongside a property sale.

Our radon gas expert will close windows, close the flue on the chimney, and ensure the air conditioning is functioning in the prescribed manner. Our radon specialist will additionally seal every indicated window with tamper indication tape to confirm that closed-house standards are maintained.
