Why Professional Radon Testing Sandusky is Important
Radon Testing Vs. Professional Radon Testing
DIY radon testing Sandusky kits can be bought by just about anyone from the local hardware store. But as with most DIY option these radon test results tend to be quite inaccurate so it is a job best left for professionals.
Another problem that occurs with DIY tests is that they are a short term test and due to the fluctuating nature of radon gas levels, these readings may be deceptively low.
Professional radon testing Sandusky gives you that security knowing that the tests are accurate and your home is safe.
Testing the correct area for the right amount of time
Another reason to hire the professionals is that we understand the correct placement of the radon test. Many homeowners will place the test at the lowest point, but depending on the layout of your property this location will give an inaccurate reading.
Short Term Vs. Long Term Radon Tests
While it can vary from device to device, generally speaking a short term testing device collects readings up to 90 days and long term collects longer than 90 days. The longer the test, the more accurate the reading is, for the most part. A local radon service professional can recommend the most appropriate test for your home.
what happens after radon testing
While it is our job, ideally our tests show up negative, but if we do detect elevated radon levels, we will let you know immediately and will provide you with an accurate quote to mitigate the issue. From there, we will come up with a radon mitigation plan that’s tailored to you and your home or business.
