You cannot see, smell, taste, or see radon. However, it could be an issue within the property you are buying. This gas flows around the earth and gets into buildings via holes and cracks in floors and foundations. It accumulates.

Sellers can merely compromise on most radon tests to sidestep responsibility. Who will realize that the testing device has been moved to get a false low or that someone opened a window?

When we perform radon testing in Fort Wayne properties, we use tamper-resistant, electronic monitors which detect and expose any strange readings of radon, humidity, and temperature brought on by opening the windows.

Power and tilt sensors show if someone relocated the monitor. Barometric pressure readings every hour will even aid in detecting odd radon averages because of extreme weather conditions. We evaluate all data for any indication of suspected tampering.
