Belmont Radon Testing & Radon Inspection

What is Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a Class A carcinogen. Radon is well known to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.

Many homes in the Belmont area have a radon gas saturation near or above the dangerous limit.

Radon gas seeps out of the topsoil, not the home. No home, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon intrusion.

Each home interfaces with the dirt underneath it in a different way. This is why properties next to others may have radically different radon gas concentrations.

Radon saturation will shift every day and seasonally inside of an acceptable range. A quick radon measurement measures a single day or week and is a good bellwether of whether or not the structure has a radon gas issue.

Radon has a half-life of only a few days. That means radon concentration will not be any higher if the property is closed for years, months, or days.

How Does Radon Enter the structure?

Houses are not built to be entirely air-tight.

Gaseous contaminants may enter through every ground-facing gap in the structure such as drainage, utility connections, and small flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.

The technique to know confidently the accumulation of radon in the property is to run a radon test.

Our Radon Gas Test Procedures

Inspecting a dwelling for radon gas is a unique process when delivered with a property purchase.

Your radon professional will position the radon detectors in the home. Radon detectors will be installed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally multiple devices are left in the home for the radon gas testing.

The radon gas specialist will close every window, close the damper on the chimney, and make certain the heating and cooling system is functioning in the required manner.

Our radon gas expert will also treat any necessary window with tamper-proof tape to confirm that draft requirements are met.

The radon gas apparatus remain in the building for two or three days to record the amount of radon gas in the structure. An expert will revisit the structure after the radon testing is complete to remove the probes and generate a report.

Please call today for a no-cost price estimate! Our Belmont home inspection experts will meet with you to hear about your property, measure your space, and get you going on making your Belmont home one you can be proud of!

    Bryan is friendly and professional. I really like that he came to the house early and start working right away. The report with all the details I need to talk to the builder was provided just a few hours after we met. Super fast! I will … More definitely work with him for the next inspection when the house is completed. Thanks Bryan !
