Radon Testing, Frankenmuth
What Should I Know About Radon?
Radon is a common-place cause of cancer. It is known to lead to lung cancer in humans.
Many houses in the Frankenmuth area have a radon saturation above the dangerous limit.
Radon naturally occurs in the topsoil, not the structure. No house, new or old, is fully shielded from radon infiltration.
Every home interacts with the soil underneath it in a different manner. That is why properties next to each other may have majorly different radon gas accumulation.
Radon gas accumulation will shift every day and with the seasons inside of a safe range. A short-term radon gas sample measures a small period and is a reliable bellwether of if the property has a radon gas problem.
Radon gas has a lifespan of only days. radon gas saturation will not be any higher if the house is closed for months, days, or years.
Houses are not supposed to be 100% draft-proof.
Gas will enter through any ground-facing gap in the property such as drainage, plumbing, and slight flaws in the foundation’s concrete.
Your way to know with confidence the accumulation of radon in the house is to have a radon test.
Probing a house for radon gas is an important process when delivered concurrently with a real estate sale.
Your radon gas expert will situate the radon gas probes in the dwelling. Radon gas probes are located in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically, multiple devices are installed on the property for the radon gas test.
The radon gas professional will close windows, seal the damper on the fireplace, and confirm the heating and cooling system is running in the standard manner. Our radon expert will also mark any necessary window with tamper indication tape to confirm that draft conditions are upheld.
The radon gas probes are left in the home for two or three days measuring the saturation of radon gas in the property. A technician will come back to the house after the radon measurement is done to recover the devices and create a report.
