Radon Testing for Waterford
What to Know About Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing chemical. Radon is scientifically proven to instigate lung cancer in humans.
Many properties in the Waterford area have a radon concentration near or above the DNS action level.
Radon seeps out of the topsoil, not the house. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon infiltration.
Every house interfaces with the soil underneath it in a different manner. This is why properties next door to each other may have significantly different radon saturation.
Radon gas concentration will change every day and seasonally inside of a normal range. A quick radon gas measurement measures a small time period and an accurate bellwether of whether or not the land has a radon problem.
Radon gas has a lifespan of about half a week. As such, radon gas saturation will not be worse if the property is closed for years, months, or days.
Houses are not built to be absolutely gas-proof.
Gaseous contaminants will suffuse through every ground-facing gap in the house such as sump pumps, pipes, and small imperfections in the concrete work.
The way to know with confidence the accumulation of radon gas in the property is to contract a radon test.
Measuring a property for radon gas is a unique service when completing a house sale.
Your radon gas technician will situate the radon gas analyzers in the structure. Radon gas probes are situated on any level that touches the ground. Normally a few monitors are installed in the house for the radon testing.
Your Waterford radon specialist will close all windows, shut the flue on the chimney, and confirm the air conditioning is operating in the required manner. Your radon professional will additionally mark all indicated windows with tamper indication tape to confirm that ventilation standards are maintained.
The radon gas devices are left in the home for 2-3 days to analyze the saturation of radon gas in the building. A specialist will revisit the home after the radon test is done to take the analyzers and write a report.
