Radon Testing in Northern Central WI

Northern Central WI Radon Testing

What’s Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing agent. Radon is scientifically proven to cause lung cancer in humans.

38%+ of homes in the Northern Central WI area have a radon saturation near or above the DNS action limit.

Radon gas comes from the silt, not the house. No property, new or old, is fully shielded from radon.

Each property interacts with the soil beneath it uniquely. That is why homes next door to each other may have dramatically different radon gas saturation.

Radon gas concentration will fluctuate every day and with the seasons inside an acceptable range. A short-term radon measurement measures a small time period and an accurate bellwether of if the land has a radon gas saturation.

Radon has a lifespan of only days. Accordingly, radon accumulation will not be higher if the structure is closed for months or years.

How Does Radon Enter the dwelling?

No dwelling is totally gas-proof.

Gaseous contaminants will infiltrate through every ground-facing gap in the house such as drainage, plumbing pipes, and even small flaws in the foundation.

The way to know confidently the accumulation of radon gas in the dwelling is to contract a radon test.

Radon Gas Test Steps

Probing a property for radon is a unique process when completed with a real estate transaction.

A radon specialist will place the radon detectors in the structure. Radon gas detectors will be installed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. It is typical that multiple monitors are left in the home for radon testing.

Our radon gas professional will seal windows, shut the vent on the fireplace, and make certain the air conditioning is running in the standard manner. Our radon specialist will additionally mark every required window with anti-tampering tape to make sure that closed home standards are met.

The radon gas probes are left in the home for a few days recording the saturation of radon gas in the property. A specialist will come back to the building after the radon test is finished to recover the analyzers and generate a report.
