Springville Radon Testing

Why Care About Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a common-place cancer-causing agent. It is scientifically proven to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.

38%+ of properties in the Springville area have a radon gas level at or above the actionable limit.

Radon gas seeps out of the soil, not the home. No structure- new or old – is fully shielded from radon gas infiltration.

Each house interacts with the topsoil underneath it in a different way. This is why properties adjoining one another often have majorly different radon saturation.

Radon saturation will rise or fall every day and with the seasons inside of a reasonable range. A one-time radon gas sample is a snapshot and a accurate metric of if the property has a radon problem.

Radon gas has a dangerous duration of only days. That means that radon saturation won’t be greater if the home is closed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Enter a dwelling?

It may surprise you to know that homes are not entirely airtight.

Vapors can suffuse through every penetration in the structure such as drainage, plumbing pipes, and invisible gaps in the foundation.

The technique to know confidently the accumulation of radon gas in the house is to order a radon test.
