What is Radon?
Radon gas is a Class A cancer-causing agent. It is scientifically proven to cause lung cancer in children and adults.
A large number of homes in the Orem area have a radon level above the DNS action amount.
Radon comes from the silt, not the building. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon contamination.
Every property interacts with the topsoil underneath it in a different way. That is why houses adjacent to each other often have radically different radon saturation.
Radon gas accumulation will change every day and seasonally within a normal range. A one-time radon gas test measures a small period and is a reliable bellwether of if the home has a radon accumulation.
Radon has a half-life of only days. This means that radon accumulation will not be any greater if the property is sealed for years, months, or days.
No dwelling is 100% hermetically sealed.
Radon can enter through each grounded vent in the building such as sump pits, plumbing pipes, and slight cracks in the concrete slab or foundation.
Your way to know with certainty the accumulation of radon in the house is to order a radon test.
Measuring a home for radon is a unique procedure when delivered with a real estate purchase.
Our radon gas professional will situate the radon detectors on the property. Radon gas detectors are installed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically between 1 and 3 analyzers are located in the home for the radon gas test.
The radon gas specialist will seal windows, close the damper on the chimney, and confirm the HVAC system is functioning in the prescribed manner. Your radon gas technician will also treat all required windows with tamper-proof tape to make sure that ventilation standards are upheld.
The radon gas probes are stored in the building for two or three days to analyze the levels of radon gas in the structure. A specialist will come back to the structure after the radon testing is completed to return the monitors and generate a report.
