Radon Testing for Saginaw Township North
What is Radon?
Radon is a common-place, cancer-causing chemical. Radon gas is well known to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.
Many houses in the Saginaw Township North area have a radon level near or above the actionable limit.
Radon seeps out of the soil, not the building. No property, newly built or longstanding, is immune to radon infiltration.
Each property meshes with the soil underneath it in a different way. That is why properties next to each other can have radically different radon gas accumulation.
Radon gas concentration will fluctuate daily and monthly within an acceptable range. A short-term radon measurement measures a single day or week and is a good metric of whether or not the property has radon saturation.
Radon gas has a lifespan of only days. Accordingly, radon gas saturation will not be greater if the home is enclosed for days, months, or years.
Surprisingly, homes are not entirely gas-proof.
Radon may suffuse through any grounded vent in the structure such as drainage, plumbing, and small imperfections in the foundation.
The method to know confidently the concentration of radon in the house is to contract a radon test.
Inspecting a dwelling for radon gas is a unique process when done as a part of a real estate transaction.
Your radon gas expert will place the radon monitors in the dwelling. Radon gas monitors will be installed in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Typically, several monitors are located in the home for the radon gas test.
Our radon specialist will seal all windows, shut the damper on the fireplace, and make sure the heater or AC is functioning in the required manner. Our radon gas professional will additionally mark every necessary window with anti-tampering tape to make sure that ventilation requirements are upheld.
The radon gas monitors are left in the house for several days to measure the levels of radon gas in the home. A specialist will return to the property after the radon test is complete to recover the devices and generate a report.
