Radon Testing, Medical Lake WA
What is Radon?
Radon is a Class A cause of cancer. Radon gas is proven to instigate lung cancer in humans.
Many properties in the Medical Lake WA area have a radon gas saturation at or above the actionable amount.
Radon naturally occurs in the soil, not the structure. No house, new or old,is exempt from radon intrusion.
Every property interacts with the topsoil beneath it in a different way. That is why properties next door to each other often have significantly different radon levels.
Radon accumulation will rise or fall on different days and seasonally inside a acceptable range. A short-term radon gas test measures a small time period and a good metric of if the structure has a radon gas contamination.
Radon has a dangerous duration of about half of a week. That means radon saturation won’t be worse if the structure is sealed for months, days, or years.
No property is 100% airtight.
Radon may infiltrate through any penetration in the building such as sump drains, pipes, and small cracks in the concrete foundation.
The method to know with certainty the accumulation of radon gas in the abode is to run a radon test.
Testing a dwelling for radon is a important procedure when delivered concurrent with a house transaction.
Our radon gas technician will situate the radon monitors in the house. Radon analyzers are installed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally between 1 and 3 monitors are placed in the structure for the radon measurement.
Our radon gas specialist will close every window, shut the damper on the fireplace, and make certain the HVAC system is operating in the prescribed manner. Your radon gas specialist will also mark any necessary window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that ventilation requirements are upheld.
The radon gas monitors are left in the property for 2-3 days to record the saturation of radon gas in the structure. A expert will return to the home once the radon test is finished to remove the probes and write a report.
