Magna Radon Testing

Why Care About Radon?

Radon gas is a naturally occurring carcinogen. It is known to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.

38%+ of houses in the Magna area have a radon concentration near or above the dangerous limit.

Radon naturally occurs in the silt, not the home. No property- new or old – is fully shielded from radon gas.

Each property interfaces with the topsoil in a different manner. This is why properties adjoining others can have majorly different radon gas saturation.

Radon gas levels will rise or fall every day and monthly inside of a normal range. A one-time radon test measures a small time period and is a reliable bellwether of whether or not the home has a radon gas saturation.

Radon has a dangerous duration of only days. radon accumulation will not be any higher if the property is closed for years, months, or days.

How Does Radon Gas Filter into Your Structure?

No property is 100% gas-proof.

Gaseous contaminants may enter through every ground-facing gap in the building such as drainage, utility connections, and slight flaws in the concrete foundation.

The method to know certainly the saturation of radon gas in the structure is to run a radon test.

Radon Gas Testing Method

Testing a property for radon gas is an important procedure when completing a house sale.

Your radon professional will position the radon monitors on the property. Radon probes will be located in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically multiple monitors are placed in the house for the radon gas measurement.

Your radon gas professional will shut windows, seal the damper on the chimney, and make certain the air conditioning is operating in the required manner. Our radon expert will also treat every indicated window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed-home requirements are upheld.

The radon gas devices are left in the property for two or three days analyzing the prevalence of radon gas in the home. A professional will return to the house after the radon testing is finished to take the monitors and generate a report.
