Radon Testing in Tawas City MI

What Should I Know About Radon Gas?

Radon gas is a common cancer-causing agent. Radon is known to instigate lung cancer in children and adults.

A large number of houses in the Tawas City MI area have a radon gas level at or above the dangerous level.

Radon seeps out of the dirt, not the home. No home- new or old – is exempt from radon gas.

Each house interfaces with the dirt beneath it in a different manner. That is part of the reason why homes next door to each other may have significantly different radon gas concentrations.

Radon gas levels will rise or fall daily and seasonally inside an acceptable range. A quick radon gas sample measures a single day or week and is an accurate indicator of if the structure has a radon problem.

Radon gas has a dangerous duration of about half a week. As such, radon concentration won’t be higher if the house is enclosed for years or months.

How Does Radon Gas Enter your home?

Surprisingly, homes are not gas-proof.

Radon gas may seep in through every penetration in the house such as sump pits, pipes, and minor gaps in the concrete foundation.

The technique to know with certainty the concentration of radon gas in the home is to have a radon test.

Our Radon Gas Test Steps

Sampling a property for radon is a unique process when offered concurrently with a property sale.

The radon expert will place the radon probes in the home. Radon gas monitors are situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. For most properties between 1 and 3, monitors are placed in the property for the radon test.

Our radon specialist will seal every window and door, shut the damper on the fireplace, and make sure the air conditioning is running in the standard manner. Your radon professional will also mark every indicated window with tamper-proof tape to confirm that closed-home requirements are met.

The radon devices are stored in the home for several days recording the saturation of radon gas in the house. A technician will revisit the property once the radon test is done to recover the probes and generate a report.

Contact us today for a free pricing estimate! Our radon testing experts will come to visit to ask about your property, measure the area, and get you going on making your Tawas City MI home one you can be proud of!
