What to Know About Radon Gas?
Radon is a common carcinogen. Radon gas is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in humans.
A large number of homes in the Parkville MO area have a radon gas level higher than the DNS action amount.
Radon filters out of the silt, not the building. No home- new or old – is immune to radon gas intrusion.
Every property interacts with the soil uniquely. This is part of the reason why properties next door to one another can have radically different radon levels.
Radon gas saturation will fluctuate every day and seasonally within a reasonable range. A short-term radon gas measurement is a snapshot and an accurate indicator of if the house has a radon problem.
Radon gas has a lifespan of only a few days. Accordingly, radon accumulation won’t be any greater if the property is closed for days, months, or years.
Surprisingly, homes are not draft-proof.
Gaseous contaminants may infiltrate through each ground-facing gap in the property such as drainage, plumbing, and even minor flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.
The technique to know with confidence the concentration of radon in the house is to have a radon test.
Testing a house for radon gas is a special service when offered with a house purchase.
Our radon gas specialist will place the radon gas probes in the dwelling. Radon detectors will be located on any level that touches the ground. On average multiple devices are located in the structure for the radon gas testing.
Our radon expert will seal every window, close the flue on the fireplace, and make sure the air conditioning is running in the prescribed manner. The radon gas professional will additionally mark every required window with anti-tampering tape to make sure that closed-house standards are maintained.
The radon gas apparatus remains in the home for several days to measure the saturation of radon gas in the structure. A technician will come back to the property after the radon testing is complete to remove the analyzers and write a report.
