Grandview Radon Testing

What’s Radon?

Radon gas is a naturally occurring cancer-causing agent. Radon gas is well known to instigate lung cancer in humans.

A large number of properties in the Grandview area have a radon level near or above the DNS action level.

Radon gas comes from the topsoil, not the building. No property, newly built or longstanding, is fully shielded from radon contamination.

Each property interacts with the soil underneath it uniquely. This is part of the reason why houses adjacent to one another may have radically different radon gas levels.

Radon accumulation will rise or fall every day and with the seasons inside a reasonable range. A quick radon gas sample is a snapshot and an accurate indicator of whether or not the home has a radon gas issue.

Radon has a lifespan of only days. This means that radon saturation will not be any higher if the property is enclosed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Seep into a Home?

It may surprise you to know that homes are not entirely airtight.

Radon gas can infiltrate through any ground-facing gap in the home such as sump drains, pipeworks, and invisible flaws in the concrete slab or foundation.

Your method to know with certainty the accumulation of radon in the structure is to have a radon test.

Your Radon Testing Procedure

Testing a home for radon is an important service when completed with a real estate transaction.

The radon specialist will position the radon monitors in the structure. Radon gas analyzers will be located in crawl spaces and on the first floor. For most properties, multiple probes are located in the home for radon gas testing.

Our radon expert will shut every window and door, seal the flue on the fireplace, and confirm the heating and cooling system is operating in the required manner. The radon expert will additionally treat any necessary window with anti-tampering tape to ensure that closed-home requirements are met.

The radon devices are left in the property for 2-3 days to record the prevalence of radon gas in the house. A professional will revisit the building once the radon test is completed to take the monitors and generate a report.

Call us today for a no-cost pricing estimate! Our radon testing experts will meet with you to hear about your property, take measurements, and get you on target on making your Grandview home one you can be proud of!

    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.

    Zach did a great job inspecting my new home! Extremely thorough and I felt like I was able to prioritize immediate work v later/cosmetic! All recommendations were clearly laid out to myself and my agent. Would recommend again!

My Buyer was very happy.

    The experience was very simplistic. Our guy was EXTREMELY kind and informative. Being first time home owners is hard enough, so we are so glad that we knew what needed to be handled by the sellers and what we (personally) needed to do. … More Eye contact was appreciated. I didn't feel like he missed anything, and I would have him come again in the future whenever we decide to sell. Thank you guys so much!!
