Radon Testing is very helpful in detecting the amount of radon levels. Radon is a poisonous gas and it comes from the decay of radioactive elements such as uranium. It is present in soil, rocks and atmosphere. If a person inhales radon gas for a longer time then it can cause serious health issues. We are working according to the recommendation of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). According to EPA, if the level of radon gas is above 4pCi/L then it is dangerous for human health. It causes lung cancer. To eliminate radon gas, it is important to perform different tests to determine the level of radon gas. Radon gas is present in your basement because it covers fully therefore it can spread vigorously.
How to install Radon mitigation system?
To reduce the level of radon gas you can install a radon mitigation system into your basement. Our team inspects your location and provides you complete guidance about the location and cost of a radon mitigation system. After visual inspection, drilling is done with the help of drill bits and different mechanical devices are used for drilling. After digging a hole, glue material is used to protect it from leakage. The next step is the piping assembly. An indoor assembly helps to provide a way for the flow of radon gas. The best piping material is used for weather conditions. The diameter of the piping assembly depends on the inlet and outlet of the fan. After the piping assembly, the fan installation is done. The main purpose of the fan is to remove the trapped air from the ground. Fan also has a black material plate that attaches to the wall. We also provide a guarantee about the casing of the fan. After fan installation, outdoor piping assembly is vertically inserted for the flow of radon gas.
To determine the amount of radon gas two types of tests are conducted. One is short-term tests and the other is long-term tests. Short-term tests are usually done within a week. Charcoal is used in this process. Alpha track detector is a device that is used to detect the amount of radon gas. Long-term tests also perform for the detection of radon gas. These tests usually take more than 90 days. Electret ion kit is best to check the amount of radon gas in long term radon testing. After testing, samples are collected and sent to the lab for radon testing.
Radon testing is very helpful in order to know the amount of radon gas. Radon is a colorless and odorless gas. Therefore, people cannot see, smell or taste radon gas. However, if you are feeling any pain in your chest or cough or breathing problems then you need to check your doctor. Radon gas is not poisonous until it affects the cellular organs of the body. It can also destroy your normal cells. It is a major cause of lung cancer all over the world. If you are facing any problem then you can contact us through email.
