What Is Radon Gas?
Why Is Radon Gas Testing Necessary?
When you’re in the market to purchase a new home or if you’re just maintaining your current home or business, radon testing should be a high priority on your checklist. The negative health effects of living in a home – or working in a building – with high radon levels is the main reason you should have your home inspected. The fact that you can’t see, smell, or taste radon is another reason it’s so important to have a professional test the air. Your family’s life could be at stake, and having the peace of mind that your home or business doesn’t have high levels of radon is priceless.
How Radon Gas Enters Your Home
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas produced by the breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. Air pressure inside your home is usually lower than the pressure in the soil around your home’s foundation. Because of this difference in pressure, your house acts like a vacuum, drawing radon in through foundation cracks and other openings. Your home then traps the radon inside, where it can build up. Any home may have a radon problem. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements.
Radon may also be present in well water and can be released into the air in your home when water is used for showering and other household uses. In most cases, radon entering the home through water is a small risk compared with radon entering your home from the soil. In a small number of homes, the building materials (e.g., granite and certain concrete products) can give off radon, although building materials rarely cause radon problems by themselves. In the United States, radon gas in soils is the principal source of elevated radon levels in homes.
