Festus Radon Testing

What’s Radon Gas?

Radon is a common-place cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is proven to lead to lung cancer in people.

Many houses in the Festus area have a radon level higher than the dangerous limit.

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

Every property meshes with the soil underneath it differently. This is why houses adjoining others often have majorly different radon gas concentrations.

Radon accumulation will rise or fall daily and seasonally inside a reasonable range. A one-time radon gas test is a snapshot and a good bellwether of whether the home has radon gas contamination.

Radon has a half-life of about half of a week. That means radon gas levels won’t worsen if the home is enclosed for months or years.

How Does Radon Seep into Your Structure?

No property is entirely hermetically sealed.

Gas may suffuse through any penetration in the building such as sump drains, plumbing, and slight flaws in the concrete work.

Your method to know with certainty the concentration of radon gas in the property is to run a radon test.

Our Radon Gas Testing Steps

Sampling a home for radon is a special procedure when delivered alongside a house transaction.

Our radon gas technician will situate the radon detectors on the property. Radon analyzers are situated in crawl spaces and on the first floor. Typically, one or three monitors are installed on the property for the radon gas test.

Our radon gas specialist will shut windows, close the vent on the fireplace, and make sure the air conditioning is running in the required manner. The radon gas professional will additionally mark every required window with tamper indication tape to make sure that draft requirements are maintained.

The radon gas apparatus is stored in the property for 2-3 days analyzing the prevalence of radon gas in the building. A specialist will come back to the house after the radon testing is finished to return the devices and generate a report.

Contact us today at 636-242-6235 for a zero-cost consultation! Our radon testing staff will come to visit to help you with your property, measure the area, and get you going on making your Festus property one you can enjoy without reservation!
