Radon Testing for Nine Mile Falls WA
Why Care About Radon?
Radon is a common-place cancer-causing agent. It is known to cause lung cancer in humans.
A large number of houses in the Nine Mile Falls WA area have a radon gas level at or above the dangerous amount.
Radon seeps out of the dirt, not the structure. No home, new or old, is immune to radon.
Every house interfaces with the ground in a different manner. This is why homes adjacent to each other often have dramatically different radon gas levels.
Radon gas concentration will rise or fall on different days and seasonally within a reasonable range. A quick radon gas test measures a single day or week and a solid metric of if the house has a radon gas accumulation.
Radon has a lifespan of only days. That means radon gas saturation will not be any higher if the structure is sealed for months, days, or years.
Houses are not supposed to be sealed.
Gas will seep in through any penetration in the house such as sump pumps, pipes, and invisible imperfections in the concrete foundation.
The technique to know with certainty the concentration of radon gas in the property is to contract a radon test.
Measuring a home for radon is a special service when delivered concurrently with a property purchase.
Your radon gas specialist will install the radon gas probes in the house. Radon gas probes will be installed on any level that touches the ground. Normally up to three devices are left in the home for the radon testing.
Our radon gas professional will seal every window and door, seal the flue on the chimney, and make certain the heating and cooling system is functioning in the required manner. Your radon gas technician will also treat every required window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that draft standards are met.
The radon gas monitors stay in the structure for 2-3 days to analyze the amount of radon gas in the home. A technician will revisit the home after the radon measurement is finished to return the probes and create a report.
