Radon Testing for Saginaw MI
What Should I Know About Radon?
Radon is a common-place cancer-causing agent. It is proven to lead to lung cancer in people.
Many houses in the Saginaw MI area have a radon gas concentration near or above the carcinogenic limit.
Radon comes from the silt, not the home. No home, new or old is fully encapsulated against radon intrusion.
Every property meshes with the dirt underneath it in a different manner. This is part of the reason why homes adjacent to others often have radically different radon levels.
Radon saturation will fluctuate daily and monthly within a safe range. A short-term radon gas test measures a small period and is a reliable indicator of whether or not the home has a radon gas saturation.
Radon gas has a lifespan of about half a week. That means radon saturation will not be any higher if the home is enclosed for months or years.
No home is gas-proof.
Gas will infiltrate through any grounded vent in the property such as drains, plumbing pipes, and even minor gaps in the foundation’s concrete.
Your method to know with certainty the levels of radon gas in the house is to have a radon test.
Probing a property for radon is a unique procedure when offered alongside a house transaction.
A radon professional will situate the radon gas monitors in the structure. Radon gas analyzers are placed on any level that touches the ground. For most properties, up to three devices are located in the home for the radon gas measurement.
The radon technician will close every window and door, shut the vent on the chimney, and make sure the heater or AC is operating in the prescribed manner. Your radon expert will additionally mark every required window with anti-tampering tape to confirm that closed-house requirements are maintained.
The radon gas monitors stay in the structure for a few days to measure the saturation of radon gas in the structure. An expert will revisit the house once the radon measurement is completed to return the probes and write a report.
