Radon Testing for Green Bay

Green Bay Radon Testing

What is Radon Gas?

Radon is a naturally occurring cancer-causing agent. It is well known to instigate lung cancer in people.

38%+ of houses in the Green Bay area have a radon gas saturation at or above the actionable level.

Radon filters out of the dirt, not the house. No home- new or old – is fully encapsulated against radon.

Every property interacts with the soil differently. That is part of the reason why properties adjoining others have significantly different radon gas concentrations.

Radon gas concentration will fluctuate daily and monthly within a normal range. A short-term radon measurement measures a single day or week and is a reliable metric of whether or not the house has a radon accumulation.

Radon gas has a half-life of 3.8 days. As such, radon gas accumulation won’t be worse if the structure is closed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Filter into your house?

No home is 100% airtight.

Radon can seep in through each ground-facing gap in the property such as drainage, pipes, and minor flaws in the foundation’s concrete.

The technique to know with confidence the concentration of radon gas in the home is to run a radon test.

Radon Testing Procedures

Probing a property for radon gas is a unique process when delivered concurrently with a property sale.

A Green Bay radon gas expert will place the radon gas analyzers in the home. Radon monitors are placed on any level that touches the ground. For most properties between one and three analyzers are left in the house for the radon testing.

Your radon gas expert will seal all windows, close the damper on the fireplace, and make certain the heating and cooling system is operating in the required manner. The radon gas technician will also mark every indicated window with anti-tampering tape to confirm that draft requirement are maintained.

The radon gas apparatus stay in the home for two or three days measuring the levels of radon gas in the home. A technician will revisit the property once the radon test is complete to recover the devices and create a report.

Please call today for a no-cost consultation! Our Green Bay radon testing experts will come out to ask about your property, measure the area, and get you on target on making your Green Bay home one you can take pride in!
