Radon is a colorless, odorless radioactive gas. It is present everywhere such as rock, soil and atmosphere. It can cause many serious health issues such as lung cancer. In all over the world about 4-15% of deaths occur because of lung cancer. It can cause serious health problems such as lung cancer. Radon Inspection is very important because it tells us about the level of radon gas.
Radon gas comes from the decay of radioactive elements such as uranium. We are working according to the rules and regulations of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). According to EPA, if the level of radon gas is above 4pCi/L then it is fatal for human health.
For radon inspection, two types of tests are used.
Short -term tests are used for radon inspection. In these tests, short-term devices are used that helps to determine the exact level of radon. Charcoal is the best option for short term radon testing. Electret ion compartment is also useful for radon inspection. It usually takes a minimum time of seven days.
Long term tests
Long-term tests are used because of the radon oscillation time by time. For the detection of radon, testing, long-term devices are used to detect the radon levels. Alpha track gauges are the best options to detect the level of radon gas.
After testing, samples are collected and then sent to the laboratory to check the levels of radon gas. Our experts I the laboratory check the amount of radon gas.
Steps to install radon mitigation system
The first step in the installation of a radon mitigation system is drilling. It is done with the help of a drill bit. Different, mechanical devices are used to drill a hole in the ground. After drilling, we seal it with the best material to prevent it from leakage. Drilling is a time taking process.
After drilling, piing assembly is done to provide a flow for the removal of radon gas. It is an indoor piping assembly. We provide you guarantee about the piping material. If the piping material is not good then it starts leaking and radon gas stars to eliminate from the cracks or holes. These pipes are made up of PVC. They act as a duct for radon removal from the house.
After the piping assembly, the fan installation is done. The main purpose of the fan is to remove the trapped air from your basement and ground. The speed of the fan depends on the requirements of the radon gas that needs to be removed. The digital manometer is also attached from outlet to inlet of fan to detect the level of radon gas. After fan installation, outdoor piping is inserted vertically upward to remove the radon gas from your basements to the outer atmosphere.
As radon is not visible, therefore radon tests are important to record the level of radon gas. Therefore, you should take proper steps to remove it from your basements because it is dangerous for human health. Radon inspection can solve your problems to some extent.
