Radon Testing in Timonium
What’s Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a common carcinogen. Radon is well known to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.
Many properties in the Timonium area have a radon gas concentration higher than the dangerous amount.
Radon gas naturally occurs in the soil, not the building. No house, newly built or longstanding, is fully shielded from radon infiltration.
Every home interfaces with the ground underneath it uniquely. This is why homes next door to one another may have radically different radon levels.
Radon gas saturation will rise or fall on different days and with the seasons inside a normal range. A one-time radon gas test is a snapshot and a reliable metric of whether or not the house has a radon gas problem.
Radon gas has a lifespan of only days. That means radon gas levels won’t be any higher if the property is closed for days, months, or years.
No home is gas-proof.
Radon may suffuse through each penetration in the home such as sump drains, plumbing, and minor imperfections in the concrete foundation.
Your method to know confidently the levels of radon in the dwelling is to contract a radon test.
Probing a house for radon gas is a special service when offered with a property purchase.
The radon expert will position the radon analyzers in the house. Radon gas probes will be located in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Typically several devices are placed in the property for the radon gas analysis.
Our radon technician will close every window, close the damper on the chimney, and make certain the heating and cooling system is operating in the standard manner. The radon gas professional will also mark any indicated window with tamper indication tape to make sure that ventilation requirements are maintained.
The radon devices are stored in the building for 2-3 days recording the levels of radon gas in the house. An expert will revisit the structure after the radon test is complete to recover the analyzers and write a report.
