Radon Testing in Asheville – You may have heard about radon when it was discovered in uranium mines several decades ago. It was causing higher rates of lung cancer and other types of cancer in employees who were constantly breathing the gas while working in the mines. Unfortunately, radon is found throughout the world, not just within mines. This radioactive gas occurs when uranium that is naturally found in water, soil, and rocks breaks down and goes into the air. It can move into your home or office building through cracks in the foundation or other weaknesses in the structure of your property.
Radon is odorless and colorless, which means that homeowners and property owners will typically not know if it is present in their buildings. Because it is the second-leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S., it is well worth it to bring in an expert for radon testing before it is too late.
At Dry Foundation Technologies, we have experienced and certified technicians who can perform radon testing in your residential or commercial building in the Asheville, North Carolina area.
Radon testing involves a continuous computerized radon monitor. We typically test in the lowest living area of the home or office, since this is where radon is most commonly found. Air movement can affect the results of radon testing, so we tend to perform radon testing in areas away from doors and windows.
