What Should I Know About Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a dangerous cause of cancer. Radon is proven to instigate lung cancer in people.
Many houses in the Mission Hills KS area have a radon gas level higher than the carcinogenic limit.
Radon naturally occurs in the soil, not the building. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon intrusion.
Each home interfaces with the ground underneath it in a different way. That is part of the reason why houses next door to each other often have dramatically different radon gas levels.
Radon gas saturation will rise or fall every day and seasonally inside an acceptable range. A quick radon gas sample measures a single day or week and is a dependable indicator of whether or not the land has a radon accumulation.
Radon has a dangerous duration of about half of a week. That means that radon gas accumulation won’t be higher if the structure is sealed for months or years.
Surprisingly, homes are not totally sealed.
Gas may seep in through every penetration in the structure such as sump pumps, pipes, and slight gaps in the concrete foundation.
Your method to know confidently the levels of radon gas in the structure is to run a radon test.
Testing a house for radon gas is an important procedure when delivered with a real estate purchase.
