Radon Testing in Woodlawn

Woodlawn Radon Testing

What is Radon?

Radon gas is a common-place cause of cancer. It is scientifically proven to instigate lung cancer in humans.

38%+ of homes in the Woodlawn area have a radon level above the actionable level.

Radon comes from the silt, not the house. No house, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon intrusion.

Each home interfaces with the ground in a different way. That is why homes adjacent to each other often have radically different radon gas concentrations.

Radon levels will rise or fall on different days and monthly within an acceptable range. A quick radon test measures a small time period and is a reliable indicator of whether or not the house has a radon saturation.

Radon has a half-life of only a few days. radon gas concentration won’t be worse if the home is closed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Infiltrate your property?

No house is 100% airtight.

Radon can seep in through every ground-facing gap in the property such as sump pumps, pipeworks, and minor gaps in the foundation’s concrete.

The way to know with confidence the accumulation of radon in the house is to run a radon test.

Your Radon Gas Test Procedures

Testing a dwelling for radon is a special procedure when delivered alongside a property sale.

A radon expert will position the radon gas detectors in the structure. Radon analyzers will be located on any level that touches the ground. For most properties, a few analyzers are placed in the structure for the radon gas measurement.

Our radon technician will close windows, close the flue on the chimney, and confirm the heating and cooling system is running in the required manner. The radon gas expert will additionally treat every required window with tamper-proof tape to ensure that ventilation standards are met.

The radon probes stay on the property for 2-3 days to analyze the levels of radon gas in the building. A specialist will come back to the building after the radon testing is complete to recover the probes and generate a report.

Give us a call today for a zero-cost estimate! Our radon testing experts will come out to help you with your property, take measurements, and get you on target on making your Woodlawn property one you can enjoy completely!
