Radon Testing, Plummer ID
What Should I Know About Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a dangerous cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is well known to lead to lung cancer in humans.
Many houses in the Plummer ID area have a radon concentration at or above the DNS action limit.
Radon comes from the topsoil, not the home. No house- new or old – is immune to radon intrusion.
Each home interfaces with the ground underneath it differently. That is part of the reason why properties adjacent to others can have radically different radon levels.
Radon gas levels will rise or fall daily and with the seasons within a safe range. A one-time radon gas measurement measures a small time period and is a good indicator of whether or not the property has radon gas contamination.
Radon has a half-life of 3.8 days. This means that radon gas levels will not be worse if the structure is enclosed for months, days, or years.
It may surprise you to know that homes are not totally draft-proof.
Vapors can enter through each ground-facing gap in the house such as drains, pipes, and invisible imperfections in the concrete work.
Your way to know certainly the concentration of radon gas in the property is to order a radon test.
Inspecting a dwelling for radon is an important process when completed with a property sale.
A radon gas specialist will situate the radon detectors on the property. Radon gas monitors will be located on any level that touches the ground. It is typical that between one and three analyzers are located in the property for the radon gas analysis.
Your radon technician will close every window and door, seal the vent on the fireplace, and confirm the air conditioning is running in the standard manner. The radon specialist will additionally seal any required window with tamper indication tape to ensure that closed home conditions are upheld.
The radon monitors are stored in the structure for 2-3 days recording the saturation of radon gas in the structure. A professional will revisit the home once the radon measurement is complete to return the devices and write a report.
