Gaylord Radon Testing

Why Care About Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a dangerous, cancer-causing chemical. Radon gas is known to instigate lung cancer in people.

38%+ of properties in the Gaylord area have a radon gas concentration at or above the DNS action limit.

Radon gas naturally occurs in the silt, not the house. No structure, newly built or longstanding, is fully shielded from radon gas contamination.

Each property meshes with the dirt underneath it in a different way. This is part of the reason why homes next door to others have majorly different radon levels.

Radon gas accumulation will fluctuate on different days and seasonally inside an acceptable range. A quick radon gas test measures a single day or week and is a reliable metric of if the home has a radon issue.

Radon has a dangerous duration of only a few days. This means that radon gas levels won’t be greater if the structure is closed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Enter a home?

No property is 100% airtight.

Vapors may infiltrate through every grounded vent in the building such as drainage, pipeworks, and even small cracks in the concrete work.

The way to know confidently the saturation of radon in the house is to order a radon test.

Radon Gas Testing Method

Testing a dwelling for radon gas is a unique process when completing a house sale.

A radon gas technician will place the radon analyzers in the house. Radon probes are installed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Typically between 1 and 3 monitors are located in the structure for the radon gas measurement.

Our radon professional will seal windows, shut the flue on the fireplace, and ensure the heater or AC is running in the prescribed manner. Your radon gas expert will also mark every necessary window with tamper indication tape to make sure that closed-house conditions are met.

The radon monitors are stored in the building for a few days analyzing the saturation of radon gas in the property. A specialist will return to the house once the radon testing is done to take the devices and generate a report.

Please call today for a zero-cost consultation! Our Gaylord radon testing consultants will come out to learn more about your property, take measurements, and get you going on making your Gaylord property one you can take pride in!
