Why Care About Radon?
Radon gas is a dangerous cause of cancer. Radon is scientifically proven to cause lung cancer in children and adults.
Many properties in the South Salt Lake area have a radon gas concentration higher than the carcinogenic limit.
Radon comes from the topsoil, not the home. No house, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon intrusion.
Every property interfaces with the topsoil differently. That is part of the reason why houses adjacent to each other often have significantly different radon gas levels.
Radon gas accumulation will change on different days and seasonally within a reasonable range. A one-time radon gas test measures a small period and is a solid indicator of if the land has radon contamination.
Radon gas has a half-life of 3.8 days. That means that radon concentration will not be greater if the home is closed for months or years.
No house is entirely draft-proof.
Vapors will suffuse through any grounded vent in the home such as drainage, utility connections, and invisible gaps in the foundation.
The way to know certainly the levels of radon in the structure is to contract a radon test.
Measuring a dwelling for radon gas is a unique service when offered alongside a house purchase.
A radon gas expert will situate the radon monitors in the dwelling. Radon monitors will be installed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally a few analyzers are placed on the property for the radon test.
Our South Salt Lake radon specialist will close windows, shut the flue on the chimney, and confirm the heating and cooling system is functioning in the prescribed manner.
Our radon gas expert will additionally seal any required window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that draft standards are maintained.
The radon monitors are left on the property for several days recording the levels of radon gas on the property. A technician will return to the building after the radon testing is done to return the devices and generate a report.
