Creve Coeur Radon Testing

What is Radon?

Radon is a naturally occurring carcinogen. Radon is proven to lead to lung cancer in people.

Many houses in the Creve Coeur area have a radon level higher than the carcinogenic limit.

Radon naturally occurs in the soil, not the structure. No home, newly built or longstanding, is fully shielded from radon gas.

Every property interfaces with the topsoil underneath it uniquely. That is part of the reason why properties adjoining others may have majorly different radon concentrations.

Radon gas concentration will change on different days and monthly inside of a normal range. A one-time radon gas measurement is a snapshot and an accurate indicator of whether or not the land has a radon issue.

Radon has a dangerous duration of only days. This means that radon concentration won’t be greater if the home is sealed for months, days, or years.

How Does Radon Seep into a Structure?

No home is 100% airtight.

Vapors may infiltrate through any ground-facing gap in the home such as drains, utility connections, and small flaws in the concrete work.

The technique to know with certainty the saturation of radon in the property is to order a radon test.

Radon Testing Steps

Testing a home for radon is a special service when delivered concurrently with a real estate purchase.

Your radon gas professional will place the radon analyzers in the dwelling. Radon probes are located on any level that touches the ground. Typically between 1 and 3 monitors are left in the property for the radon gas measurement.

The radon expert will shut all windows, shut the damper on the fireplace, and make sure the heater or AC is operating in the prescribed manner. Our radon gas technician will also treat every required window with tamper indication tape to confirm that closed-house conditions are upheld.

The radon gas apparatus is left in the house for two or three days recording the levels of radon gas in the structure. A specialist will return to the building once the radon measurement is completed to remove the monitors and create a report.
