Radon Testing for Ferndale
Radon is a naturally occurring cancer-causing chemical. It is proven to cause lung cancer in people.
A large number of houses in the Ferndale area have a radon saturation near or above the actionable level.
Radon gas filters out of the topsoil, not the building. No house, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon.
Every property meshes with the soil underneath it differently. That is part of the reason why homes adjoining each other can have radically different radon saturation.
Radon saturation will fluctuate every day and monthly inside an acceptable range. A one-time radon gas sample measures a single day or week and a solid metric of if the land has a radon gas accumulation.
Radon has a lifespan of only days. radon gas accumulation will not be worse if the property is closed for years or months.
Surprisingly, homes are not hermetically sealed.
Gas may seep in through each penetration in the house such as drains, plumbing pipes, and even small imperfections in the concrete work.
Your way to know confidently the accumulation of radon gas in the dwelling is to order a radon test.
