What Should I Know About Radon Gas?
Radon is a common-place cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is scientifically proven to instigate lung cancer in people.
Many homes in the South Ogden area have a radon concentration higher than the carcinogenic level.
Radon seeps out of the silt, not the structure. No structure- new or old – is immune to radon contamination.
Every house interacts with the dirt underneath it differently. This is why homes next door to one another have majorly different radon levels.
Radon concentration will fluctuate on different days and with the seasons inside of a reasonable range. A one-time radon test is a snapshot and an accurate indicator of whether or not the property has a radon gas problem.
Radon gas has a lifespan of 3.8 days. Accordingly, radon accumulation won’t be worse if the structure is sealed for months or years.
Houses are not supposed to be gas-proof.
Gaseous contaminants may seep in through each penetration in the building such as sump pumps, plumbing, and even minor gaps in the foundation’s concrete.
Your method to know certainly the accumulation of radon gas in the property is to run a radon test.
Measuring a home for radon gas is a unique service when offered a real estate purchase.
The radon specialist will install the radon gas probes in the house. Radon analyzers will be situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Typically between 1 and 3 probes are located in the home for the radon test.
The radon gas professional will seal windows, shut the vent on the chimney, and make certain the heater or AC is functioning in the required manner. Our radon expert will additionally mark any required window with tamper indication tape to make sure that ventilation conditions are met.
The radon gas probes stay in the house for two or three days to analyze the amount of radon gas in the house. An expert will revisit the structure after the radon test is complete to remove the devices and generate a report.
