Centreville VA Radon Testing & Radon Inspection

Radon is a dangerous cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is scientifically proven to cause lung cancer in people.

Many homes in the Centreville VA area have a radon gas saturation at or above the actionable amount.

Radon comes from the soil, not the building. No home, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon gas infiltration.

Each and every property interfaces with the dirt differently. This is why properties adjoining others have radically different radon accumulation.

Radon accumulation will rise or fall daily and monthly inside of an acceptable range. A one-time radon test measures a small time period and a reliable bellwether of whether or not the home has a radon gas contamination.

Radon has a dangerous duration of only a few days. Accordingly, radon saturation won’t be any greater if the structure is enclosed for years or months.

How Does Radon Infiltrate the structure?

Surprisingly, homes are not totally hermetically sealed.

Radon will suffuse through any ground-facing gap in the property such as sump drains, pipes, and small flaws in the concrete foundation.

Your method to know with confidence the saturation of radon in the home is to order a radon test.

Radon Test Steps

Inspecting a property for radon is a special procedure when completing a property transaction.

The Centreville VA home inspection professionals will situate the radon probes in the structure. Radon monitors will be dropped off in crawl spaces and on the first floor. It is typical that several monitors are placed in the house for the radon test.

The radon gas technician will shut all windows, close the vent on the fireplace, and make certain the heating and cooling system is functioning in the prescribed manner. Your radon professional will additionally treat any indicated window with tamper-proof tape to confirm that closed home requirements are met.

The radon apparatus are stored in the house for a few days to analyze the prevalence of radon gas in the building. An expert will come back to the building after the radon test is done to recover the monitors and generate a report.
