Pacific Radon Testing

What Should I Know About Radon?

Radon gas is a Class A carcinogen. Radon is proven to instigate lung cancer in people.

A large number of properties in the Pacific area have a radon gas saturation above the carcinogenic amount.

Radon gas filters out of the silt, not the structure. No house- new or old – is immune to radon infiltration.

Each house meshes with the dirt uniquely. This is why homes adjacent to one another may have radically different radon gas concentrations.

Radon levels will change daily and seasonally inside of a safe range. A one-time radon sample measures a small time period and is a good indicator of if the home has a radon gas issue.

Radon gas has a lifespan of about half a week. Accordingly, radon levels will not be worse if the home is enclosed for months or years.

How Does Radon Seep into a structure?

No house is absolutely hermetically sealed.

Gas will seep in through any penetration in the building such as drainage, pipeworks, and invisible imperfections in the concrete work.

Your method to know with confidence the concentration of radon gas in the dwelling is to contract a radon test.

Your Radon Gas Test Procedure

Sampling a home for radon gas is a special service when delivered alongside a real estate purchase.

A radon expert will install the radon gas detectors in the dwelling. Radon gas analyzers will be placed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally up to three devices are left in the home for the radon analysis.

The radon professional will close windows, close the damper on the chimney, and make sure the heating and cooling system is running in the required manner.

Your radon gas technician will also seal every required window with tamper-proof tape to confirm that draft standards are maintained.

The radon devices are left in the building for 2-3 days measuring the levels of radon gas in the building.

A technician will come back to the structure after the radon test is complete to return the monitors and generate a report.
