Pontiac MI Radon Testing

What Should I Know About Radon?

Radon is a dangerous cancer-causing chemical. Radon gas is known to lead to lung cancer in humans.

Many houses in the Pontiac MI area have a radon concentration above the DNS action level.

Radon seeps out of the dirt, not the building. No structure, new or old, is fully shielded from radon infiltration.

Every house meshes with the topsoil differently. That is part of the reason why homes next to each other often have majorly different radon levels.

Radon saturation will shift on different days and with the seasons inside of a normal range. A short-term radon test measures a small period and is an accurate bellwether of if the structure has radon gas contamination.

Radon has a half-life of only days. radon concentration will not be any greater if the home is enclosed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Gas Infiltrate a Home?

Surprisingly, homes are not entirely hermetically sealed.

Vapors may suffuse through each penetration in the building such as sump pumps, pipes, and even small gaps in the foundation’s concrete.

The technique to know certainly the concentration of radon in the structure is to run a radon test.

Radon Gas Test Procedures

Testing a property for radon is an important process when completed concurrently with a property purchase.

Your radon technician will situate the radon gas probes in the structure. Radon gas analyzers will be placed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Normally between 1 and 3 analyzers are left in the property for the radon measurement.

Our radon gas professional will seal all windows, seal the vent on the fireplace, and ensure the air conditioning is functioning in the prescribed manner. Our radon specialist will additionally treat all necessary windows with tamper-proof tape to ensure that ventilation standards are upheld.

The radon probes stay in the building for 2-3 days to measure the levels of radon gas in the building. A technician will return to the house once the radon test is done to remove the monitors and generate a report.
