Radon Testing, Randallstown
What is Radon Gas?
Radon is a dangerous cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.
A large number of properties in the Randallstown area have a radon gas concentration higher than the DNS action limit.
Radon gas naturally occurs in the soil, not the home. No house, new or old, is fully encapsulated against radon contamination.
Each home interacts with the topsoil beneath it in a different way. This is why houses next to each other often have majorly different radon concentrations.
Radon gas levels will shift every day and monthly inside of an acceptable range. A one-time radon gas measurement is a snapshot and a good indicator of if the land has radon gas contamination.
Radon gas has a half-life of only a few days. radon accumulation won’t be higher if the property is closed for years, months, or days.
Houses are not built to be 100% sealed.
Radon may infiltrate through any grounded vent in the building such as drainage, plumbing pipes, and even minor flaws in the concrete foundation.
The method to know confidently the concentration of radon in the abode is to have a radon test.
Probing a home for radon gas is an important procedure when completed as a part of a house sale.
Your Randallstown radon technicians will place the radon analyzers in the structure. Radon gas monitors will be situated on any level that touches the ground. Typically between one and three analyzers are installed in the house for the radon gas test.
Your radon professional will shut every window, close the vent on the fireplace, and make certain the HVAC system is running in the required manner. Our radon specialist will also mark all indicated windows with tamper-proof tape to confirm that closed home conditions are maintained.
The radon gas probes remain in the structure for 2-3 days to record the amount of radon gas in the property. An expert will come back to the building once the radon test is finished to take the monitors and generate a report.
