Radon Testing for Belmont
What to Know About Radon?
Radon is a dangerous, cancer-causing chemical. Radon is well known to cause lung cancer in children and adults.
Many properties in the Belmont area have a radon saturation higher than the carcinogenic limit.
Radon gas filters out of the silt, not the home. No home- new or old – is fully shielded from radon gas contamination.
Every home interacts with the dirt underneath it in a different manner. That is part of the reason why homes adjacent to others have significantly different radon accumulation.
Radon levels will shift daily and monthly inside of a normal range. A one-time radon gas test measures a small time period and is a good bellwether of if the property has a radon gas problem.
Radon gas has a half-life of only a few days. That means that radon gas concentration won’t be any higher if the home is sealed for months, days, or years.
No house is 100% airtight.
Gas may enter through each grounded vent in the house such as drainage, utility connections, and invisible gaps in the foundation.
The technique to know certainly the accumulation of radon gas in the home is to run a radon test.
Probing a property for radon is a unique process when offered with a property transaction.
A radon gas professional will install the radon monitors in the home. Radon detectors will be dropped off in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally a few probes are located in the property for the radon gas analysis.
Our radon professional will shut every window, seal the damper on the chimney, and make certain the heating and cooling system is running in the standard manner. Our radon gas specialist will also treat any necessary window with anti-tampering tape to make sure that ventilation requirements are met.
The radon devices stay in the home for a few days measuring the levels of radon gas in the structure. An expert will revisit the home once the radon test is completed to recover the monitors and create a report.
