Radon Testing in Superior WI
What to Know About Radon Gas?
Radon gas is a common cancer-causing chemical. It is proven to cause lung cancer in children and adults.
Many properties in the Superior WI area have a radon gas saturation higher than the dangerous level.
Radon gas comes from the silt, not the building. No house- new or old – is exempt from radon gas intrusion.
Every house interfaces with the dirt in a different way. That is part of the reason why properties adjacent to others have radically different radon accumulation.
Radon gas accumulation will rise or fall on different days and monthly within an acceptable range. A quick radon gas measurement measures a small time period and a solid bellwether of if the property has a radon gas problem.
Radon gas has a dangerous duration of about half of a week. This means that radon gas levels won’t be higher if the house is enclosed for years or months.
Surprisingly, homes are not totally airtight.
Radon will enter through each grounded vent in the structure such as drains, plumbing pipes, and even small gaps in the concrete foundation.
Your method to know confidently the accumulation of radon gas in the home is to contract a radon test.
Probing a home for radon is a unique service when completed concurrently with a house sale.
A radon gas specialist will place the radon analyzers on the property. Radon probes will be placed in crawl spaces and on the first floor. For most properties between 1 and 3 devices are installed in the property for the radon measurement.
The radon gas professional will close every window, close the flue on the fireplace, and ensure the air conditioning is functioning in the prescribed manner. Our radon technician will additionally treat all indicated windows with tamper indication tape to confirm that closed home conditions are maintained.
The radon gas monitors stay in the home for 2-3 days analyzing the saturation of radon gas in the building. A technician will revisit the building once the radon measurement is done to return the devices and generate a report.
