Radon is a naturally occurring gas that is created when radioactive uranium slowly decays in the earth. This is something that happens all over the country, though it’s certainly more common in certain areas. This gas comes up through the ground, and due to the way that we heat and ventilate our properties, it’s able to enter the building a lot of the time. This isn’t always an issue – after all, when it comes to minor exposure, there aren’t really any consequences. However, if the exposure level is higher, it can be a significant issue that bears a lot of concern. At Fort Wayne Radon, we provide reliable radon testing services to make sure that if there’s any radon in or around your property, you’ll know about it.
What is Radon Testing?
As mentioned previously, radon is a naturally occurring gas that results from the decay and deterioration of radioactive uranium. We provide a radon inspection service that helps you to uncover this unwanted presence at your property. It’s possible that you could have a small amount, a large amount, or be somewhere in between – regardless of the volume present, we’ll get to the bottom of things. The testing procedure is exhaustive, as every part of your property will need to be checked to be totally sure that everything is clear and good to go.
Sensitive Testing Equipment
With radon testing, we generally need to know three things. Firstly, we have to know whether or not radon is present in the building. Secondly, we need to find out the amount of radon that is present. Lastly, we have to find out where the radon is entering the building from. With these pieces of information, you can then begin to take action. The sensitive testing equipment that we have in our arsenal will allow us to identify these pieces of information without any mishaps cropping up. We only use top quality tools and equipment to ensure that we always get reliable, accurate results.
Potential Health Risks
One of the primary reasons that you’ll want to test for the presence of radon at your property is because of the significant health problems that can occur from long term exposure. People that have suffered from extensive radon exposure can experience breathing difficulties, respiratory issues, and even cancer. Naturally, this is very serious. The problems are even worse when dealing with a person who has pre-existing health conditions too. We’re proud to provide a service that helps to safeguard our valued customers from harm.
It goes without saying that if you believe you’re suffering from some radon symptoms, then you need to get a specialist in to deal with the situation – but it’s still advisable to have your property tested even if you haven’t got symptoms. These problems can build up slowly in the background, and if you’ve never had your property tested, you can’t be sure that you’re safe. Preparedness and caution is the name of the game – take a proactive approach for the health and safety of everyone at your property.
