Access to clean and safe air within a structure is an investment. Several factors affect the quality of air. Some of which include the following: temperature, humidity, cleanliness, and ventilation. Similarly, there are many reasons as to why some cannot achieve acceptable indoor air quality. The most common would be radon gas.
What is radon?
Simply put, it is an odorless and colorless contaminated gas that is formed from decaying elements. Its presence is invisible, and this is why most are unable to detect it. It comes from the rocks and soil underneath a structure. These contain traces of uranium. Radon arises from the ground and makes its way through a building through sinks, tanks, and even foundation cracks.
Risks of radon gas
Raised radon levels can exist in any indoor space. Moreover, exposure to these in commercial buildings can put people at risk for developing health problems. To name a few, people who occupy a commercial space that has radon gas can experience persistent coughing, wheezing, chest pains, and shortness of breath.
The biggest risk, however, would be that radon is the number one cause of lung cancer for people who don’t smoke. In general, radon is the second biggest cause of lung cancer.
“Michael was extremely professional, thorough, and helpful during the inspection. This is my first home purchase and he made me feel confident that the home was in good shape. I love the use of technology throughout the whole process. Makes keeping track of things much easier. I’d highly recommend ALLIN Home Inspections!” – Review of ALLIN Home Inspections, Inc. By A Stutzke
ALLIN Radon Detection understands that not all structures are the same. There are stringent guidelines set forth by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) Department of Nuclear Safety (DNS) for testing commercial buildings. ALLIN Radon Detection has a license to perform survey measurements in all commercial buildings in the State of Illinois.
Commercial screening is a completely different process than testing residential properties. Some of the other structures that we consider commercial are multifamily dwellings, schools, and day care centers. If you would like more information about the commercial radon screening or for a quote, please call us at (877) 545-6639 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
