Radon Gas Testing Maryland
All types of buildings new or old, with basement or on a slab concrete foundation can have elevated level of radioactive radon gas. The differences in air pressure between the inside of a building and the soil around it also play an important role in radon entry. We all remember from school that hot air rises while colder air stays in the lower level of the home . The warm air inside buildings moves naturally upwards and creates “stack effect” which reduces air pressure in the basement or crawlspace. House can be compared to a vacuum which sucks in air through the cracks or openings in the foundation, walls. If the house does not have proper radon mitigation system or poor ventilation than radon level can builds up and become dangerous for the health. Since radon gas does not have color, smell or taste you and your family may be exposed to radioactive radon gas for many years without ever noticing its presence.
EPA and NRPP recommend to test homes for radon every two years and during real estate transactions as a part of radon contract contingency. A NRPP licensed technician will ensure that closed building conditions are established in the property, then CRM machine will be place according to EPA and state guidelines for a short-term continuous radon testing. The duration requirement of radon testing in Maryland is 48 hours. Moreover, closed-building conditions will need to be maintained 12 hours prior to and during the test. A radon measurement report with graph and hourly radon level results will be provided the same day CRM device are retrieved.
