Radon Testing, Woodbridge
Radon is a common cancer-causing agent. Radon is known to cause lung cancer in people.
A large number of homes in the Woodbridge area have a radon gas concentration near or above the carcinogenic amount.
Radon gas naturally occurs in the silt, not the house. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon gas intrusion.
Every property interacts with the topsoil underneath it uniquely. This is why properties adjoining each other have majorly different radon accumulation.
Radon levels will rise or fall every day and monthly inside of a normal range. A one-time radon gas sample is a snapshot and a solid bellwether of whether the house has a radon problem.
Radon gas has a lifespan of 3.8 days. That means radon levels won’t be higher if the structure is enclosed for months or years.
No dwelling is airtight.
Gaseous contaminants will seep in through each penetration in the property such as drainage, utility connections, and slight imperfections in the concrete slab or foundation.
Your method to know with certainty the saturation of radon in the abode is to run a radon test.
Testing a dwelling for radon is a special service when completed with a real estate purchase.
The radon gas technician will place the radon gas detectors in the structure. Radon gas analyzers will be situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Typically, multiple probes are left in the structure for the radon gas measurement.
Your radon specialist will shut windows, seal the vent on the fireplace, and ensure the heating and cooling system is functioning in the required manner. Your radon technician will also treat every required window with anti-tampering tape to make sure that closed-house standards are maintained.
The radon gas probes are stored in the structure for two or three days to record the levels of radon gas in the home. An expert will come back to the house once the radon testing is completed to recover the analyzers and create a report.
