Radon Testing, Brooklyn Park
Why Care About Radon?
Radon is a dangerous cause of cancer. It is proven to lead to lung cancer in humans.
38%+ of houses in the Brooklyn Park area have a radon gas concentration near or above the DNS action amount.
Radon gas naturally occurs in the dirt, not the home. No house- new or old – is fully shielded from radon infiltration.
Every property interacts with the ground differently. That is part of the reason why houses next to each other can have majorly different radon gas concentrations.
Radon saturation will change on different days and monthly inside an acceptable range. A one-time radon test measures a single day or week and is an accurate indicator of if the house has a radon issue.
Radon has a dangerous duration of only a few days. Accordingly, radon gas levels won’t be worse if the house is enclosed for years or months.
No property is completely draft-proof.
Radon may suffuse through every penetration in the building such as drainage, plumbing pipes, and even minor imperfections in the concrete foundation.
The method to know with confidence the concentration of radon in the property is to have a radon test.
Sampling a property for radon is a special service when completed as a part of a real estate purchase.
The radon technician will place the radon gas detectors in the house. Radon analyzers are dropped off on any level that touches the ground. For most properties, up to three analyzers are placed in the home for the radon test.
The radon technician will seal every window, shut the damper on the fireplace, and make certain the heating and cooling system is operating in the standard manner. Our radon professional will additionally mark every required window with tamper indication tape to make sure that ventilation conditions are met.
The radon apparatus stay on the property for a few days analyzing the prevalence of radon gas in the structure. A professional will come back to the building once the radon measurement is complete to recover the monitors and write a report.
