Normally, when property owners spot an issue in their houses or businesses, they can quickly take care of it. The problem is that radon is not like an ordinary leak in the roof or burst pipe. Since this radon is both colorless and odorless, it is impossible to identify without specialized equipment. Unlike natural gas, which can be identified by its accompanying release of mercaptan which smells of rotten eggs, radon can only be found by expert testing. If it is allowed to stay in a home or commercial property for very long, the radioactivity of this gas can lead to lung cancer.
The way that radon comes to invade a property is a natural process, so it is impossible to stop it from occurring. When the uranium that is already present in water, dirt, and surrounding rocks begins to break down, it contaminates everything. The question is how much radon is present since the particular layout of a property means it might contain a higher or lower concentration. To find out the percentage of radon, experts can use either a short-term or a long-term radon test.
A short-term inspection only takes about four days to conduct. This kind of test is usually conducted when owners are moving into a new property. Alternatively, those who have been having breathing troubles may want to check their home’s levels. In contrast, a long-term test is performed following a thorough mitigation process. Over a period of time, experts will check to see whether the radon levels have significantly decreased.
