What to Know About Radon?
Radon is a common-place carcinogen. Radon gas is proven to cause lung cancer in people.
Many homes in the Ogden area have a radon level above the dangerous limit.
Radon gas seeps out of the topsoil, not the building. No property, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon.
Each and every home interacts with the ground beneath it differently. That is why houses next door to others often have dramatically different radon gas saturation.
Radon gas saturation will fluctuate every day and with the seasons inside a reasonable range. A short-term radon test is a snapshot and a reliable metric of if the structure has a radon contamination.
Radon has a lifespan of 3.8 days. That means that radon accumulation will not be greater if the structure is closed for months, days, or years.
Houses are not supposed to be absolutely sealed.
Radon gas can enter through any grounded vent in the home such as drainage, pipes, and minor flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.
The technique to know confidently the concentration of radon gas in the abode is to order a radon test.
Probing a house for radon is a important process when delivered as a part of a real estate sale.
Our radon gas technician will place the radon monitors in the dwelling. Radon gas analyzers are placed on any level that touches the ground. On average multiple analyzers are left in the home for the radon measurement.
Our radon specialist will seal every window and door, seal the flue on the fireplace, and make sure the air conditioning is running in the required manner.
Your radon professional will also treat every necessary window with anti-tampering tape to make sure that closed house conditions are maintained.
The radon apparatus remain in the structure for two or three days recording the saturation of radon gas in the structure. A technician will come back to the home after the radon testing is completed to recover the monitors and write a report.
