High Ridge Radon Testing

What Should I Know About Radon Gas?

Radon is a naturally occurring carcinogen. It is scientifically proven to lead to lung cancer in humans.

Many homes in the High Ridge area have a radon level above the carcinogenic amount.

Radon naturally occurs in the silt, not the home. No property, new or old, is exempt from radon gas intrusion.

Every property interfaces with the topsoil uniquely. This is part of the reason why houses adjoining each other often have radically different radon gas accumulation.

Radon levels will shift daily and monthly within a safe range. A one-time radon sample measures a small period and is an accurate bellwether of if the property has a radon accumulation.

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

How Does Radon Penetrate a home?

No home is airtight.

Gaseous contaminants may infiltrate through every grounded vent in the building such as sump drains, plumbing pipes, and invisible gaps in the concrete slab or foundation.

The technique to know with confidence the saturation of radon in the house is to contract a radon test.

Our Radon Gas Test Method

Inspecting a home for radon gas is an important service when delivered with a real estate purchase.

A radon expert will situate the radon gas analyzers on the property. Radon analyzers are installed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally between one and three probes are placed in the structure for the radon gas analysis.

Your radon technician will close every window and door, shut the vent on the chimney, and make certain the heating and cooling system is running in the required manner. The radon gas specialist will additionally mark every necessary window with tamper indication tape to ensure that closed home conditions are upheld.

The radon gas probes are stored in the building for a few days analyzing the amount of radon gas in the home. A technician will revisit the structure after the radon test is finished to recover the probes and generate a report.
