“People don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it. We do it because we care." Radon Testing is very important to your health. Call us to have one of our licensed home/radon inspectors test your home or business today.
Radon is a radioactive gas and is found in soils below your home. Radon moves up through the ground to the air above into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation. Pressure differences within the home (from warm air rising and natural effects) pull radon into living spaces from the soil.
Soil and rocks are the main causes of radon issues in a home. Due to the pressure difference between the inside and outside of your home, your home acts like a vacuum drawing radon through foundation cracks and other openings.
Whether there are cracks in the concrete slab, pores and cracks in concrete blocks or floor-wall joints, all exposed to openings can allow radon to be brought into the home. Radon can enter your home even without cracks or openings. Sealing cracks may appear beneficial but it is not a stand alone solution.
An open drain tile system (gap between the concrete floor and wall) will allow radon to enter in the home at a faster rate and increase the levels of radon. A sump can also be another area where radon can enter your home. Radon levels should be checked if either of these improvements have been made to your home since your last radon test.
Radon entering the home through water is a small risk compared with radon entering your home from the soil. Well water can bring radon into the home through the shower or other water sources.
