Old Jamestown Radon Testing

Why Care About Radon?

Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing agent. It is known to instigate lung cancer in humans.

38%+ of homes in the Old Jamestown area have a radon gas concentration higher than the actionable level.

Radon gas naturally occurs in the soil, not the building. No structure, new or old, is fully shielded from radon gas infiltration.

Every house meshes with the soil differently. That is why homes next to each other can have radically different radon gas saturation.

Radon gas saturation will change every day and monthly inside an acceptable range. A quick radon gas measurement measures a small period and a solid metric of if the home has radon contamination.

Radon has a lifespan of only days. As such, radon gas saturation will not be greater if the home is enclosed for months or years.

How Does Radon Gas Penetrate your structure?

No dwelling is 100% gas-proof.

Gas will seep in through every penetration in the building such as drains, pipes, and invisible imperfections in the concrete work.

The way to know with confidence the saturation of radon gas in the abode is to order a radon test.

Your Radon Testing Method

Probing a house for radon is a unique process when offered a property sale.

The radon gas specialist will position the radon probes in the property. Radon gas probes will be installed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. For most properties, several probes are installed in the home for the radon gas test.

Our radon technician will seal all windows, close the damper on the chimney, and ensure the air conditioning is functioning in the standard manner. Our radon gas technician will also seal any required window with tamper-proof tape to ensure that ventilation requirements are maintained.

The radon gas apparatus stay in the house for several days to measure the saturation of radon gas in the structure. A specialist will come back to the house after the radon measurement is finished to remove the devices and create a report.
