Winfield Radon Testing

What’s Radon Gas?

Radon is a naturally occurring cause of cancer. Radon is scientifically proven to cause lung cancer in people.

38%+ of homes in the Winfield area have a radon gas saturation near or above the dangerous limit.

Radon gas comes from the dirt, not the building. No home, new or old, is fully shielded from radon gas infiltration.

Every property interfaces with the dirt differently. That is part of the reason why houses adjacent to each other have dramatically different radon gas saturation.

Radon saturation will rise or fall on different days and with the seasons inside a reasonable range. A one-time radon sample measures a single day or week and is an accurate indicator of if the home has radon gas contamination.

Radon has a half-life of only a few days. As such, radon gas accumulation won’t be greater if the property is closed for years, months, or days.

How Does Radon Filter into a dwelling?

Houses are not built to be completely hermetically sealed.

Gas may seep in through each ground-facing gap in the structure such as drainage, pipes, and small gaps in the foundation.

Your way to know confidently the saturation of radon gas in the structure is to order a radon test.

Our Radon Gas Test Procedures

Probing a house for radon gas is a unique service when completed with a property purchase.

A radon gas professional will position the radon gas monitors in the dwelling. Radon monitors will be situated on any level that touches the ground. Normally multiple analyzers are placed in the home for the radon gas analysis.

The radon gas expert will close every window, shut the flue on the chimney, and confirm the air conditioning is functioning in the prescribed manner. Our radon expert will also treat any indicated window with tamper indication tape to ensure that closed house requirements are met.

The radon apparatus stay in the home for several days analyzing the saturation of radon gas in the home. A professional will come back to the house once the radon testing is completed to return the devices and generate a report.

Please call today for a no-pressure pricing estimate! Our radon testing experts will come out to ask about your property, measure the area, and get you started on making your Winfield property one you can enjoy completely!
