Why Professional Radon Testing toledo is Important
Radon Testing Vs. Professional Radon Testing
When you start learning about radon testing Toledo, it may be enticing to buy a DIY radon testing kit from your local hardware store, but these radon test results can be wildly inaccurate and may leave you with a false sense of safety.
Generally the issue with these tests is that they are both short term tests which are less accurate than long term, and the placement of the test can skew the results.
Professional radon testing Toledo Ohio is the best way to know for sure if your property has elevated levels of radon.
Testing the correct area for the right amount of time
Placement, as we mentioned above, can make a huge difference in the test results. Many DIY tests will tell you to place the test at the lowest point in your home, though depending on the layout of your property this may result in inaccurate readings.
Short Term Vs. Long Term Radon Tests
When it comes to radon tests, the label ‘short term’ is given to test that take measurements up to 90 days, and ‘long term’ takes measurements for more than 90 days. Due to the fluctuating nature of radon gas levels, the longer the reading, the more accurate the test will be. A local radon service professional can recommend the most appropriate test for your home.
what happens after radon testing
When the test is complete, we will analyze the results. If we find that your property has elevated levels of radon, we will immediately begin evaluating the situation and provide you with an accurate quote for our radon mitigation services. To determine this quote, we will formulate a mitigation plan to remove the radon and restore your property to a safe state.
Radon Gas Symptoms
Radon levels can only be accurately identified using specialized tests, but because exposure to radon impacts your health, it can be helpful to know what symptoms are caused by radon exposure. The most common radon gas symptioms include:
- chest pain, especially when you cough or laugh
- frequent infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia
- persistent cough
- coughing up blood
- shortness of breath
If you have any of the above symptoms, make an appointment with a doctor and get your home or business tested for radon as soon as possible.
