A variety of individuals in the United States have a crawl space in their home. A crawl space is normally not sealed off properly, which can cause danger into the home. Animals are able to find their way through crawl spaces into an individual’s home, just like different types of gases that float around in the air. Radon gas is a type of chemical gas that is known to enter a home through a crawl space.
Radon gas can enter a home through crawl spaces, crawl spaces are exposed to soil, which is basically the flooring. A Crawl space has no barriers to prevent the entry of radon; most people don’t even know a way to slow radon from enter crawl spaces. People aren’t familiar with radon, and they do not think about the gas entering their crawl space.
Radon gas is an odorless, tasteless, and colorless gas. This gas cannot be seen, smelt, or tasted, which makes it tricky for an individual to detect this gas in their home or crawl space. Radon is found in soil; once soil is mixed around the radon is released into the air. This is how radon enters a crawl space, because the entire flooring in the crawl space is just soil.
Once radon is in a crawl space, it can go up through the floor to enter an individual’s living room, office, bedroom, and kitchen; really radon can make its way to any room in an individual’s house through their crawl space. A great way an individual can protect their home from getting radon when it is entering through the crawl space is to seal a crawl space off, and then buy a radon mitigation system, known as an active soil depressurization.
If an individual is unsure if there is radon in their crawl space, then they can be a radon detector device, to test the levels of radon in their home. This device should be held in the lowest room in the house, along with being held in the crawl space. People believe that they are safe from toxic air when they are inside of their home, which is not true. They do not realize that toxic air such as air with radon gas can enter a home through cracks, space, and holes in the foundation, along with entering through the crawl space.

If someone is unsure about what air quality they have, and are not willing to go in their crawl space, then they can call a radon contractor. A radon contractor is a professional worker who is more than qualified to handle radon exposure. These professionals can check the levels of radon through an individual’s home, along with their crawl space. Once levels are checked, the professional can use a radon mitigation device to get rid of the radon exposure throughout the house. The radon mitigation the professional uses can vary, depending on what the company think is best.
Radon gas is a dangerous gas to breathe in; this gas can cause lung cancer. This is why it is important to make sure radon isn’t entering a home through cracks in the foundation. Homes should be checked yearly for radon, for protection.
