Best ways for Radon Testing
There are many ways for Radon Testing. Radon comes from the decay of radioactive elements such as uranium. We provide many services through which you can easily ask for help. Our workers provide you complete guidance before testing procedures.
What is radon Testing?
Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas. In all over the world, about 4-15% of people are suffering from lung cancer because of this radon gas. It is a poisonous gas and we can detect the amount of radon gas with the help of different radon testing kits. If you are living in a house where radon gas is detected then you visit your doctor. If you are feeling any chest, pain and cough then do not ignore all these symptoms just visit to your doctor.
How we are working to test radon gas?
We are working according to the rules and regulations of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). According to EPA, a normal level of radon gas is 4pCi/L but if the level of radon gas is above 4pCi/L then it can cause many health issues such as lung cancer. We provide short-term tests and long-term tests to determine the amount of radon gas. In short -term tests, different short-term devices are used that helps to record the level of radon gas trapped in your basement. For short-term devices, charcoal is used. Alpha track gauges are also used to detect the level of radon gas. Short-term testing completes within a week. For long term testing, the Electret ion compartment is used. It is the best kit to determine the levels of radon gas.
After radon testing, our team collects samples of radon gas and then sent them to the laboratory. In the laboratory, samples are checked to know the exact amount of radon gas in your basement.
How can we install a radon mitigation system?
The installations of radon mitigation done in three basic steps such as drilling, piping assembly and fan installation. Drilling is a time taking process. It usually involves digging out a hole in your basement for the removal of radon gas. After drilling, glue-like material is used that helps to protect it from leakage. After drilling, the indoor piping assembly is needed. We provide you complete guarantee about the piping material. Piping is very important it acts as a pathway for radon gas to eliminate it from the house. It helps you like a duct system. The diameter of the piping assembly depends on the inlet and outlet of the fan. After piping assembly, Fan installation is the last step. Fan helps to remove them from your ground outside of the house. A manometer is also attached for radon testing on the inlet and outlet of the fan. This manometer helps us to detect the level of radon gas in your basement. Fan also has flanges for screw tightening. It also has a black material plate that attaches to the wall. After fan installation, outdoor piping is inserted vertically upward to remove radon gas. Radon testing helps to check the level of radon gas on regular basis.
