Radon Testing in Saint Maries ID
Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing chemical. Radon is proven to instigate lung cancer in people.
A large number of houses in the Saint Maries ID area have a radon gas level at or above the dangerous level.
Radon filters out of the topsoil, not the structure. No structure, new or old, is exempt from radon infiltration.
Every home interacts with the soil beneath it in a different manner. That is why homes adjacent to each other may have majorly different radon levels.
Radon accumulation will change every day and with the seasons inside a safe range. A one-time radon measurement measures a small period and is a reliable metric of whether or not the house has radon gas contamination.
Radon gas has a half-life of only a few days. That means radon concentration won’t be worse if the house is enclosed for days, months, or years.
No property is sealed.
Radon will infiltrate through any ground-facing gap in the structure such as sump pumps, utility connections, and slight flaws in the foundation’s concrete.
Your way to know with confidence the accumulation of radon in the property is to have a radon test.
Measuring a home for radon is an important service when delivered concurrently with a property purchase.
Our radon specialist will situate the radon probes in the property. Radon monitors are dropped off in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Normally between 1 and 3 probes are left in the house for the radon testing.
The radon professional will close every window and door, close the damper on the fireplace, and make certain the heater or AC is operating in the required manner. The radon specialist will also treat all indicated windows with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed home conditions are upheld.
The radon apparatus stay in the home for two or three days analyzing the prevalance of radon gas in the home. A specialist will come back to the structure once the radon measurement is done to return the probes and write a report.
