Radon Testing for West Hartford Connecticut Residents
In today’s world, we often feel extremely safe in our homes. With alarm systems, strong insulation systems, and fitting locks, we have every reason to think that nothing can harm us in our West Hartford homes. Unfortunately this is not the case. Radon gas can enter your home through cracks, the foundation, basements, and many other areas. Radon gas claims roughly 20,000 lives per year in the form of lung cancer. Radon testing allows professionals to determine whether or not your home is infested with this dangerous, cancer causing vapor.
You might be thinking to yourself right now that your home does not have any funny smells, and therefore there is not a reason to worry. Only radon testing can determine if your home is effected, as this vapor is colorless, and odorless. West Hartford radon testing by S.W.A.T. Environmental can provide your family the comfort and ease, knowing a thorough test has been conducted by a certified radon mitigation expert.
Radon Testing Process in West Hartford
There are two common radon testing methods. Short term radon testing takes two to seven days. A more accurate method is the long term, which typically takes ninety days. For the most accurate measure of your homes radon levels, we recommend the long term method. Testing in the fall months also allows for a more accurate reading, as your doors and windows will be less likely to be left open. Although we recommend long term testing in the fall, radon testing can be completed in any month. If your home returns a radon test with no or low levels of radon, it is still important to know to test your home every two to five years.
