Radon Testing, Novi MI
What to Know About Radon?
Radon is a dangerous cause of cancer. It is well known to cause lung cancer in humans.
A large number of houses in the Novi MI area have a radon level above the DNS action amount.
Radon comes from the soil, not the house. No house, new or old, is exempt from radon gas infiltration.
Each house meshes with the ground underneath it in a different manner. This is part of the reason why properties next to others can have significantly different radon levels.
Radon gas concentration will fluctuate every day and seasonally inside an acceptable range. A one-time radon gas measurement measures a single day or week and is a reliable bellwether of whether or not the structure has a radon gas accumulation.
Radon gas has a lifespan of only days. As such, radon concentration will not be any greater if the house is sealed for months or years.
No dwelling is 100% airtight.
Vapors can seep in through each penetration in the building such as sump drains, plumbing, and small gaps in the concrete slab or foundation.
The way to know certainly the saturation of radon gas in the dwelling is to have a radon test.
Inspecting a dwelling for radon is an important procedure when delivered concurrently with a real estate purchase.
A radon gas specialist will place the radon gas probes in the dwelling. Radon gas probes will be placed on any level that touches the ground. For most properties, several probes are installed in the house for the radon gas test.
