Radon Testing for Woodlawn
What Should I Know About Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a common-place carcinogen. Radon gas is known to cause lung cancer in people.
Many homes in the Woodlawn area have a radon gas level higher than the dangerous amount.
Radon filters out of the dirt, not the house. No property, new or old,is immune to radon gas contamination.
Every property meshes with the topsoil in a different manner. This is why homes next door to each other often have dramatically different radon accumulation.
Radon gas saturation will shift daily and seasonally inside a safe range. A one-time radon gas sample is a snapshot and a good bellweather of if the structure has a radon contamination.
Radon has a half-life of only days. Accordingly, radon gas concentration won’t be any higher if the home is closed for years, months, or days.
No house is 100% draft-proof.
Radon gas may infiltrate through each ground-facing gap in the building such as drainage, pipeworks, and even minor imperfections in the concrete work.
Your way to know certainly the saturation of radon in the property is to have a radon test.
Inspecting a house for radon gas is a important process when delivered with a real estate purchase.
Your radon gas specialist will install the radon analyzers in the dwelling. Radon analyzers are situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching earth. It is typical that between one and three analyzers are placed in the property for the radon analysis.
The radon technician will shut every window and door, shut the flue on the fireplace, and ensure the heating and cooling system is running in the standard manner. Your radon gas technician will additionally treat every required window with anti-tampering tape to confirm that ventilation requirements are upheld.
The radon apparatus are left in the structure for several days analyzing the saturation of radon gas in the house. A specialist will revisit the property after the radon test is finished to remove the monitors and write a report.
