Radon Testing for Mead WA
What Should I Know About Radon?
Radon gas is a common-place cause of cancer. It is well known to cause lung cancer in humans.
Many houses in the Mead WA area have a radon gas saturation at or above the actionable amount.
Radon gas comes from the silt, not the building. No property, new or old, is immune to radon gas.
Every house interacts with the ground beneath it in a different manner. This is part of the reason why properties adjacent to others have dramatically different radon levels.
Radon saturation will change daily and with the seasons inside of a normal range. A quick radon sample measures a small period and is a good metric of if the property has a radon gas issue.
Radon gas has a dangerous duration of only days. Accordingly, radon levels will not be greater if the property is enclosed for days, months, or years.
No dwelling is completely gas-proof.
Gaseous contaminants may infiltrate through any ground-facing gap in the home such as sump pits, plumbing, and invisible flaws in the foundation.
The technique to know confidently the saturation of radon in the home is to have a radon test.
Testing a property for radon is a special procedure when done concurrently with a property sale.
Your radon gas expert will place the radon gas analyzers in the home. Radon gas analyzers will be placed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. On average between one and three analyzers are placed in the structure for the radon gas analysis.
The radon specialist will seal all windows, shut the damper on the chimney, and make sure the air conditioning is running in the required manner. Our radon gas professional will also treat all indicated windows with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed home standards are maintained.
The radon gas monitors are stored in the structure for several days to analyze the saturation of radon gas in the property. An expert will come back to the property after the radon measurement is completed to return the devices and generate a report.
