Radon Testing in Country Homes WA
What is Radon Gas?
Radon is a Class A cause of cancer. It is scientifically proven to cause lung cancer in people.
38%+ of properties in the Country Homes WA area have a radon gas level above the carcinogenic limit.
Radon gas seeps out of the silt, not the house. No home, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon gas.
Each and every home meshes with the soil in a different manner. This is part of the reason why homes adjacent to others have dramatically different radon saturation.
Radon gas saturation will rise or fall every day and with the seasons inside of a normal range. A quick radon gas test measures a single day or week and a dependable metric of whether or not the land has a radon issue.
Radon gas has a half-life of 3.8 days. As such, radon gas levels will not be greater if the structure is enclosed for months, days, or years.
No home is entirely gas-proof.
Radon gas may seep in through every penetration in the property such as drainage, plumbing, and even small gaps in the concrete foundation.
The technique to know with certainty the saturation of radon gas in the house is to contract a radon test.
Probing a dwelling for radon gas is a unique procedure when offered alongside a property transaction.
A radon technician will place the radon monitors in the property. Radon monitors will be placed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching earth. It is typical that a few probes are left in the house for the radon test.
The radon technician will seal every window, seal the damper on the fireplace, and confirm the heater or AC is running in the required manner. Our radon specialist will additionally seal every indicated window with tamper indication tape to make sure that draft standards are maintained.
