Gray Summit Radon Testing

What is Radon Gas?

Radon is dangerous cancer-causing chemical. Radon is known to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.

A large number of houses in the Gray Summit area have a radon gas concentration near or above the actionable amount.

Radon comes from the dirt, not the home. No structure- new or old – is exempt from radon gas infiltration.

Each house interfaces with the ground underneath it in a different manner. That is part of the reason why homes adjacent to each other may have significantly different radon levels.

Radon concentration will shift daily and monthly inside of an acceptable range. A quick radon gas sample measures a single day or week and is a dependable metric of if the structure has a radon gas accumulation.

Radon gas has a dangerous duration of only a few days. That means that radon accumulation will not be any higher if the structure is sealed for days, months, or years.

Houses are not supposed to be gas-proof.

Radon gas can enter through any penetration in the property such as drains, utility connections, and invisible cracks in the foundation’s concrete.

Your method to know confidently the saturation of radon in the abode is to order a radon test.

Your Radon Test Procedure

Probing a house for radon is an important service when completed concurrently with a property sale.

Our radon expert will install the radon gas analyzers in the structure. Radon analyzers are located on any level that touches the ground. Typically, between one and three monitors are located in the property for the radon analysis.

Your radon expert will shut every window, close the damper on the fireplace, and ensure the air conditioning is functioning in the standard manner. Our radon expert will additionally treat all indicated windows with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed-house requirements are met.

The radon gas monitors are stored in the home for two or three days to measure the prevalence of radon gas in the structure. A professional will come back to the home after the radon test is done to return the analyzers and create a report.
