Wright City Radon Testing

What is Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a naturally occuring canceoccurringg agent. Radon is known to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.

A large number of properties in the Wright City area have a radon level near or above the DNS action amount.

Radon gas naturally occurs in the soil, not the building. No property, new or old, is fully encapsulated against radon gas intrusion.

Every property interacts with the soil underneath it differently. That is why properties adjacent to each other can have dramatically different radon saturation.

Radon accumulation will change on different days and seasonally inside a safe range. A short-term radon sample measures a small period and is a good indicator of whether or not the property has a radon gas accumulation.

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

How Does Radon Gas Penetrate Your dwelling?

No dwelling is entirely gas-proof.

Radon may enter through any grounded vent in the property such as sump pumps, plumbing pipes, and invisible cracks in the concrete slab or foundation.

The method to know certainly the concentration of radon in the structure is to contract a radon test.

Our Radon Testing Steps

Sampling a house for radon gas is a unique process when delivering a real estate transaction.

Our radon specialist will install the radon probes in the structure. Radon gas monitors are situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Typically, multiple monitors are placed in the home for the radon measurement.

Our radon expert will seal all windows, close the damper on the fireplace, and confirm the heater or AC is running in the standard manner. The radon specialist will additionally mark any necessary window with tamper indication tape to ensure that closed home requirements are met.

The radon gas probes stay in the home for a few days to analyze the saturation of radon gas in the structure. A specialist will return to the structure once the radon testing is complete to return the probes and write a report.

Call us today for a no-pressure estimate! Our radon testing consultants will come to visit to ask about your property, take measurements, and get you on target on making your Wright City house one you can be proud of!
