Radon naturally occurs in the soil, not the building. No home, new or old,is immune to radon gas intrusion.
Each home interacts with the ground in a different manner. That is why houses next door to one another have radically different radon gas levels.
Radon gas accumulation will fluctuate on different days and seasonally inside of a safe range. A quick radon test measures a small time period and a good indicator of if the land has a radon gas accumulation.
Radon gas has a half-life of only days. That means that radon accumulation will not be greater if the home is closed for months or years.
Houses are not built to be 100% airtight.
Vapors will enter through every penetration in the property such as sump pumps, utility connections, and invisible flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.
Your way to know confidently the saturation of radon in the dwelling is to contract a radon test.
Probing a home for radon is a unique service when completed as a part of a real estate sale.
Your radon gas professional will position the radon analyzers in the home. Radon probes are installed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. It is typical that between one and three devices are located in the home for the radon gas test.
The radon technician will close every window and door, close the vent on the fireplace, and make certain the air conditioning is functioning in the standard manner. The radon specialist will also treat every required window with tamper indication tape to make sure that closed home conditions are maintained.
The radon gas devices remain in the structure for two or three days analyzing the amount of radon gas in the building. A technician will revisit the home after the radon test is complete to take the analyzers and create a report.
