Radon Testing, Wallace ID
What is Radon?
Radon gas is a common cause of cancer. It is proven to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.
A large number of houses in the Wallace ID area have a radon level at or above the DNS action amount.
Radon seeps out of the soil, not the building. No home, new or old, is fully shielded from radon gas.
Every house interacts with the ground underneath it uniquely. This is why homes adjoining others have significantly different radon gas saturation.
Radon gas accumulation will rise or fall every day and monthly within an acceptable range. A one-time radon gas test is a snapshot and a good metric of if the land has radon gas contamination.
Radon has a half-life of 3.8 days. That means that radon gas levels won’t be higher if the structure is sealed for years or months.
No house is airtight.
Gas may enter through each ground-facing gap in the structure such as drainage, plumbing, and minor imperfections in the foundation.
The technique to know certainly the saturation of radon gas in the structure is to order a radon test.
Testing a dwelling for radon is an important procedure when delivered as a part of a real estate sale.
The radon gas professional will place the radon monitors in the home. Radon gas detectors will be installed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. For most properties between one and three probes are placed in the structure for the radon gas testing.
The radon gas professional will close windows, close the flue on the fireplace, and ensure the HVAC system is functioning in the prescribed manner. Our radon expert will also mark every necessary window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that draft standards are met.
The radon apparatus are stored on the property for several days to measure the amount of radon gas in the building. A specialist will revisit the building once the radon testing is completed to return the monitors and create a report.
