Arlington Radon Testing & Radon Inspection

What is Radon Gas?

Radon is a naturally occurring cancer-causing chemical. Radon gas is proven to lead to lung cancer in people.

Many properties in the Arlington area have a radon gas level above the carcinogenic level.

Radon gas seeps out of the topsoil, not the building. No property, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon intrusion.

Every property interacts with the dirt differently. That is part of the reason why properties next to one another may have radically different radon saturation.

Radon gas saturation will change on different days and with the seasons within a reasonable range. A quick radon sample measures a single day or week and a solid bellwether of whether the house has a radon saturation.

Radon has a dangerous duration of only a few days. radon gas concentration won’t be higher if the property is enclosed for years or months.

How Does Radon Penetrate a Home?

Houses are not built to be 100% airtight.

Radon can seep in through any grounded vent in the home such as drains, pipeworks, and invisible flaws in the concrete work.

The technique to know confidently the saturation of radon gas in the home is to order a radon test.

Our Radon Testing Steps

Inspecting a house for radon is an important procedure when completed alongside a house sale.

The radon expert will position the radon gas analyzers in the dwelling. Radon detectors are located on any level that touches the ground. For most properties, several probes are installed in the home for the radon gas measurement.

The radon gas specialist will seal windows, seal the damper on the chimney, and make sure the heater or AC is running in the standard manner. The radon specialist will additionally seal every necessary window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that draft requirements are met.

The radon gas monitors stay in the structure for two or three days measuring the saturation of radon gas in the house. A professional will return to the structure after the radon measurement is finished to remove the monitors and create a report.
