Kansas City MO Radon Testing

Why Care About Radon?

Radon is a Class A cause of cancer. Radon is proven to cause lung cancer in children and adults.

38%+ of homes in the Kansas City MO area have a radon gas level at or above the carcinogenic amount.

Radon filters out of the silt, not the structure. No home, newly built or longstanding, is fully encapsulated against radon intrusion.

Every home interacts with the dirt beneath it in a different manner. That is why properties next to one another often have dramatically different radon gas accumulation.

Radon saturation will change on different days and with the seasons inside of a reasonable range. A short-term radon gas test measures a small time period and an accurate bellwether of whether or not the house has a radon contamination.

Radon gas has a dangerous duration of only days. As such, radon gas concentration will not be greater if the house is closed for days, months, or years.

How Does Radon Filter into a Structure?

Houses are not built to be 100% hermetically sealed.

Radon will infiltrate through any penetration in the home such as sump pumps, plumbing, and slight cracks in the concrete foundation.

The way to know certainly the concentration of radon gas in the home is to order a radon test.

Your Radon Gas Testing Procedures

Measuring a dwelling for radon is a special service when done concurrently with a property transaction.

Our radon gas technician will place the radon gas probes on the property. Radon detectors are situated in crawl spaces, the level above crawl spaces, and any room touching the earth. Normally a few devices are left in the home for the radon analysis.

Your radon expert will close every window and door, close the vent on the fireplace, and ensure the HVAC system is running in the required manner. Your radon specialist will additionally treat every necessary window with tamper-proof tape to make sure that closed home conditions are met.

The radon probes stay in the home for two or three days to analyze the prevalence of radon gas in the building. An expert will come back to the property after the radon test is complete to remove the devices and generate a report.

    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!

    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!!
