Radon Testing in Woodbine
What is Radon?
Radon is a common-place carcinogen. Radon is proven to cause lung cancer in people.
Many houses in the Woodbine area have a radon gas level near or above the actionable level.
Radon gas filters out of the soil, not the structure. No property, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon gas infiltration.
Every property interacts with the ground underneath it in a different manner. This is why homes next door to others can have radically different radon accumulation.
Radon gas saturation will fluctuate every day and monthly within a safe range. A quick radon gas test measures a small time period and is a reliable bellwether of if the land has radon contamination.
Radon gas has a lifespan of about half a week. As such, radon gas accumulation won’t be greater if the home is closed for days, months, or years.
Surprisingly, homes are not 100% sealed.
Gaseous contaminants can enter through any grounded vent in the home such as sump pits, pipeworks, and slight cracks in the concrete foundation.
The way to know certainly the saturation of radon gas in the structure is to have a radon test.
Sampling a property for radon is an important service when completed alongside a house sale.
Your radon gas expert will situate the radon analyzers in the home. Radon probes are located on any level that touches the ground. It is typical that between one and three probes are left in the structure for the radon gas test.
Our radon gas technician will close windows, close the vent on the chimney, and confirm the air conditioning is operating in the required manner. Your radon gas specialist will also seal all necessary windows with tamper-proof tape to ensure that closed-house requirements are met.
The radon apparatus is left in the home for several days to analyze the amount of radon gas in the property. A professional will return to the property after the radon testing is finished to remove the analyzers and write a report.
