Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is well known to instigate lung cancer in humans.
A large number of properties in the Grandview area have a radon level near or above the DNS action level.
Radon gas comes from the topsoil, not the building. No property, newly built or longstanding, is fully shielded from radon contamination.
Each property interacts with the soil underneath it uniquely. This is part of the reason why houses adjacent to one another may have radically different radon gas levels.
Radon accumulation will rise or fall every day and with the seasons inside a reasonable range. A quick radon gas sample is a snapshot and an accurate indicator of whether or not the home has a radon gas issue.
Radon has a lifespan of only days. This means that radon saturation will not be any higher if the property is enclosed for days, months, or years.
It may surprise you to know that homes are not entirely airtight.
Radon gas can infiltrate through any ground-facing gap in the home such as sump drains, pipeworks, and invisible flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.
Your method to know with certainty the accumulation of radon in the structure is to have a radon test.
Testing a home for radon is an important service when completed with a real estate transaction.
The radon specialist will position the radon monitors in the structure. Radon gas analyzers will be located in crawl spaces and on the first floor. For most properties, multiple probes are located in the home for radon gas testing.
Our radon expert will shut every window and door, seal the flue on the fireplace, and confirm the heating and cooling system is operating in the required manner. The radon expert will additionally treat any necessary window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that closed-home requirements are met.
The radon devices are left in the property for 2-3 days to record the prevalence of radon gas in the house. A professional will revisit the building once the radon test is completed to take the monitors and generate a report.
