Fairway Radon Testing

What to Know About Radon Gas?

Radon is a Class A cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is well known to cause lung cancer in humans.

A large number of properties in the Fairway area have a radon gas level above the actionable amount.

Radon naturally occurs in the topsoil, not the structure. No home, newly built or longstanding, is exempt from radon contamination.

Each home interacts with the topsoil differently. That is why houses adjacent to others often have significantly different radon gas concentrations.

Radon gas accumulation will change on different days and monthly inside of a normal range. A one-time radon gas test is a snapshot and an accurate bellwether of whether or not the property has radon contamination.

Radon gas has a dangerous duration of only a few days. As such, radon levels won’t be greater if the property is enclosed for years, months, or days.

How Does Radon Gas Infiltrate the Home?

No house is entirely airtight.

Radon gas can enter through every ground-facing gap in the structure such as drainage, plumbing pipes, and minor flaws in the foundation.

The way to know confidently the accumulation of radon gas in the dwelling is to contract a radon test.

Our Radon Testing Method

Inspecting a home for radon gas is a unique service when delivered as a part of a real estate sale.

A radon expert will situate the radon monitors on the property. Radon monitors are located in crawl spaces and on the first floor. On average between 1 and 3 probes are located in the structure for the radon testing.

The radon specialist will shut all windows, shut the flue on the chimney, and ensure the air conditioning is running in the prescribed manner. Your radon gas professional will also treat any indicated window with anti-tampering tape to make sure that ventilation requirements are upheld.

The radon gas probes stay in the building for a few days analyzing the amount of radon gas in the home. A technician will return to the home after the radon testing is done to recover the devices and write a report.

Give us a call today for a no-pressure estimate! Our radon testing consultants will come out to learn more about your property, measure your space, and get you started on making your Fairway house one you can be proud of!

    We are purchasing a new home and wanted a professional inspection prior to closing. We chose Crown because they did the inspection on the home we sold and did an excellent job for the new owner. The inspector provided an explanation to … More us of anything that may need attention and sent the recommendations with pictures very quickly. We highly recommend Crown Home Inspections.

    Travis conducted a home inspection for my buyer client in Lee’s Summit and I am very pleased. This was my first time hiring Crown Home Inspections. He was professional, courteous, and personable despite it was over 104 degrees outside on … More a Friday afternoon! The inspection was thorough and he communicated with me throughout the process. Since my client was in CA, he zoomed with her at the end to provide a summary and answer her questions. The report gave both the client and myself a great understanding of the home. I will hire Crown again to conduct my inspections.
