Radon Testing for Ann Arbor MI
What is Radon?
Radon gas is a dangerous cause of cancer. Radon gas is well known to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.
Many properties in the Ann Arbor MI area have a radon concentration higher than the carcinogenic amount.
Radon seeps out of the soil, not the structure. No structure- new or old – is fully shielded from radon gas contamination.
Every house interacts with the ground uniquely. That is part of the reason why homes adjoining one another can have radically different radon levels.
Radon levels will change daily and monthly inside a reasonable range. A quick radon sample measures a single day or week and is a reliable indicator of whether or not the property has a radon gas issue.
Radon gas has a lifespan of only a few days. This means that radon levels will not be any higher if the house is closed for days, months, or years.
Surprisingly, homes are not completely draft-proof.
Gas will enter through any grounded vent in the house such as drains, utility connections, and invisible imperfections in the foundation.
Your way to know certainly the concentration of radon in the house is to order a radon test.
Measuring a property for radon gas is a unique service when done with a house transaction.
Our radon technician will install the radon gas monitors in the house. Radon gas probes are situated on any level that touches the ground. Normally several analyzers are installed in the house for the radon testing.
The radon gas technician will shut windows, shut the vent on the fireplace, and make sure the heating and cooling system is operating in the standard manner. Your radon gas technician will additionally seal any necessary window with anti-tampering tape to confirm that closed-house standards are maintained.
The radon gas devices are stored in the home for two or three days measuring the levels of radon gas in the property. An expert will revisit the structure once the radon testing is completed to remove the monitors and create a report.
