Florissant Radon Testing

What is Radon?

Radon gas is a dangerous carcinogen. It is scientifically proven to cause lung cancer in people.

A large number of properties in the Florissant area have a radon gas level higher than the carcinogenic limit.

Radon seeps out of the silt, not the home. No house, new or old, is fully shielded from radon gas infiltration.

Each home interfaces with the dirt in a different way. That is part of the reason why properties adjacent to others have dramatically different radon gas levels.

Radon gas accumulation will change every day and monthly inside of a safe range. One-time radon measurement is a snapshot and a reliable metric of if the house has a radon gas problem.

Radon has a half-life of only a few days. radon gas levels will not be worse if the structure is closed for months or years.

How Does Radon Enter your house?

Surprisingly, homes are not sealed.

Gas can infiltrate through every ground-facing gap in the house such as sump drains, pipeworks, and even small flaws in the foundation.

Your method to know certainly the concentration of radon gas in the structure is to contract a radon test.

Your Radon Gas Test Procedures

Inspecting a house for radon gas is a special service when done concurrently with a property sale.

A radon gas professional will place the radon detectors in the dwelling. Radon gas monitors will be installed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally a few devices are left in the property for the radon gas measurement.

Your radon technician will close every window and door, seal the vent on the chimney, and make certain the air conditioning is operating in the standard manner. Our radon specialist will also treat any necessary window with tamper indication tape to ensure that draft standard are maintained.

The radon gas apparatus are stored in the home for a few days to measure the saturation of radon gas in the structure.

A technician will revisit the property after the radon test is complete to remove the devices and write a report.
