Radon Mitigation Testing Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Many devices and testing methods have been tried and developed in order to best determine indoor radon exposures. We utilize only the most advanced and reliable testing devices and procedures in the industry. Our sophisticated processes and approved measurement devices determine either an average of the radon exposure over a long period of time or the radon potential over a short period of time.
This test is also referred to as “the short-term test.” The radon potential test generally lasts anywhere from 48-120 hours and we only conduct this test under closed building conditions. Being that the conditions must be closed, this test is most commonly used during the resale of a home or property. These sealed testing conditions usually start 12 hours prior to the test and of course remain closed throughout the duration of the test. Once the area is closed, the testing device is placed in the lowest area of the home to ensure the most accurate results.
This test is also referred to as “the long-term test.” We conduct the occupant exposure test for at least 91 days. However, in some cases, we may recommend that the testing procedure last as long as one year. Because of the length of testing time needed, this method is commonly used outside of real estate transactions. However, it is sometimes used at the basis of an escrow fund release, especially if a short-term test has shown results between 4 and 10 pCi/L. Furthermore, we generally conduct this test under normal live-in conditions that do not require a special closed building environment. Just as we do with the radon potential test, we place the testing device in the lowest area of the home to ensure the most accurate results.
