Radon Testing for Jackson MI

Jackson MI Radon Testing

What Should I Know About Radon?

Radon is a common cause of cancer. Radon gas is well known to lead to lung cancer in children and adults.

38%+ of houses in the Jackson MI area have a radon gas saturation at or above the DNS action amount.

Radon filters out of the dirt, not the structure. No property, new or old, is immune to radon.

Each property interfaces with the soil beneath it in a different manner. That is why properties next door to others often have radically different radon accumulation.

Radon gas concentration will shift every day and monthly inside a reasonable range. A short-term radon sample is a snapshot and a good metric of if the property has a radon gas accumulation.

Radon gas has a dangerous duration of about half a week. As such, radon accumulation won’t be worse if the structure is enclosed for years or months.

How Does Radon Gas Enter the house?

Houses are not supposed to be completely draft-proof.

Vapors will enter through any ground-facing gap in the building such as sump drains, plumbing pipes, and minor gaps in the concrete slab or foundation.

Your method to know with confidence the saturation of radon gas in the structure is to order a radon test.
