In the USA, every year people died because of lung cancer and most of us are thinking that the reason behind this is smoking. There is a gas named as “radon”, which occurs naturally is dangerous and can lead to lung cancer. So, yet smoking isn’t the only candidate accused of giving a lung cancer. In fact, in every state, the threats of radon level are founded. If your neighbour house has a high radon level that surely your home also has a radon level because this is the gas which transfers through the air. Don’t judge the level of radon without radon inspection in a home. If you want to avoid the bad effect of radon, which is around us, hire a professional service for the best result.
How to test your home for radon without professional help?
Many of us, thinking that hiring a contractual service is wastage of time and money. If you are not aware of the installation process of testing, you can learn the instruction as well watch many tutorials. The following are the simple steps of testing.
- First, purchase the test kit from market (like outlet, departmental store, and online store)
- Apply the test kit in the lower place of your homes like basement and crawlspaces
- Leave the test kit for two days
- At least send the test kit to laboratories for result
Within a couple of days, you will get the result of your home’s inspection. So, once you are up with the process of inspection you need to know the drastic level and the safest level of radon. If the radon level is more than 4cPi/L, you need to test again for removing the danger of radon gas. If the radon test level of is 2cPi/L, you are fifty percent safe because it is not the highest level and can overcome easily. The best result is 1.3cPi/L to 0.4Cpi/L, and it’s a lower radon level, which means you are safe here.
Why it’s better to hire professional service?
Professional knows each and every process of radon inspection. In fact, they have many tools regarding radon inspection like active detector and passive detector. Sometimes, you are wrong in the testing process, but professionals are never wrong. They are
- Fully trained and experience
- Have work licensed
- Know each and every mistake
- Provide the radon-free environment
Radon is available all around us and only professionals know that where the radon level is high or where it is low. In addition, different places have different radon level. It’s better to hire the contractual service to remove radon gas in a shortage of time. There are two methods
- Short-term periodic test
- Long-term periodic test
Mostly professionals service prefers the short-term periodic test because it is done in a shortage of time instead of long-term. An active detector is used at the time of radon inspection to evaluate properly. Meanwhile, there is no need for eye to eye inspection in long-term periodic testing.
